Games "To see anyone defending EA and Maxis for the state of SimCity, even were it in perfect working order on launch, depresses me to my core. This self-flagellation-as-skincare notion, where gamers loudly and proudly defend the destruction of their own rights as consumers, is an Orwellian perversity. That it might be considered in any way controversial to call them out on their crap, to point out that no, always-on DRM is not an advantage to anyone, is bewildering. It's a sign of just how far the gaming world has fallen into the rabbit hole of the publisher's burrowing." As usual, RPS hits the nail on the head so hard it shoots through the board.

Except that you can't 'copy' a car for $0, which makes this analogy a bad one. If you could, you would probably see these same types of restrictions.

As far as uncrackable DRM, how are you going to crack something that runs mostly (or entirely) on a server? Have you ever seen anyone who can play OnLive games for free?
