This is a great move if it true. You can't really count Spore figures as it was really too early in the "new style" DRM flood to be considered indicative of people's tolerance for DRM. I got 3 copies for this household. Got 3 copies of Red Alert 3. I also bought 1 copy of Mercenaries 2 (had the PS3 one) and it was bugged out and wasting activations while not running. So I returned it. That's when I decided no more boxed PC games with DRM. I was lucky enough to have avoided all the other games that used DRM that people had issues with, GTA4, Mass Effect, Bioshock, Fallout 3, etc, etc.. So my decision came after roughly 3 exposures. Now they also need to make Sims 3 available on Steam/Impulse etc. for guys who want that type of distribution too. It's about maximum exposure and choices. Some of us like to collect and own a game, others want the service to handle it. And of those, some want a specific service they are comfortable with.
Edit: I have no intentions of ever installing GfW, so if games are using that, I am passing. If it was a singular solution that was robust and functional as it was intended, then I would entertain the idea. But it hasn't been and I don't really ever want it to be at this point now either. Why? Because so many other services that are user accepted can do it now. YMMVThis comment was edited on Mar 27, 2009, 16:38.
PS3 resurgance by GOW3 - Check! Mass Effect for PS3 - Check! Diablo 3 for consoles? I say "For sure"!
