Spore DRM Post of the Day

Spore & Piracy- EA, ESA, Analysts Weigh In on Gamasutra gathers opinions form analysts and EA to examine whether assertions that the controversial SecuROM DRM in Spore has actually harmed sales of the life simulation, rather than helped them by protecting the game from piracy. EA argues against the theory that DRM has cost them sales saying they do not automatically equate every copy of the game that's pirated as a lost sale, a contrast to claims made by many developers and publishers in the past. A couple of other opinions expressed in the article are the assertion by many that online authentication is inevitable for more PC games going forward, and Chris Remo's Penny Arcade editorial suggesting that the response to this situation represents an overreaction.

I too could list the (ever growing) bunch of games that DRM has put me off buying recently, but the other way that this situation has affected me is that I no longer pre-order games. I got caught out by Bioshock as I already had it paid for and pre-loaded on steam by the time I heard about the DRM.
I will not buy any game now until the DRM type has been confirmed and I will not buy any game period if it has Digital Rental Management.
Fool me once....
