Marcin Iwiński, CEO of CD Projekt RED, explained that the excuse for copy protection is “pretty much bullshit, because the games are cracked the moment they’re released.”
Haha *applauds* Love CD Projekt... I'll continue to support them wherever I can. While companies like Capcom will never get a penny from me. It's a shame some of the bigger companies don't understand the real value of making your customers happy.
What's an even bigger shame is how there are gamers who vehemently support the companies that don't care about their customers the way someone like CD Projekt does. I can at least understand a gaming company being blinded by money. But for the customers to blindly support that...
well said mate
Have to love CD Projekt they learned a lot from Wichter 2's original DRM problems. I am always happy to support a developer that cares about gamers.
If only every developer had the same approach, way too many money hungry companies or monopolies in the gaming industry now a days.
Excellent Dev :) Not sure why but when I see DRM I instantly think Ubisoft everytime ...
They pioneered the always-online thing. Pretty much the worst kind there is.
cd projekt are awesome devs giving their customers soooo much and their stance on drm is awesome too
A-F***ing-MEN. Dont play pc much but man I understand how frustrating DRM would be.. Even more respect for these guys!
This. It's what I would call a digital bitch-slap to every single publisher and developer in the industry, especially in lieu of Blizzard and its DIII trainwreck.
When I heard they removed the DRM from the retail version of The Witcher 2 in the second patch, I immediately went to buy it. When I heard Diablo 3 was going to use an online DRM, I ignored it since then. Just several years ago I'm always worried whether my PC can play the latest games. But that's something that I can control to an extent by tweaking the game or my PC or upgrading. Now, I'm more worried what kind of DRM what the latest games will use. That really can kill a purchase for me since it's something beyond my control. I said good bye to Diablo 3 and STALKER 2 before they were even launched. I'll be saying hello to Torchlight 2 and Cyberpunk.
Will buy all of there titles from now on...wait...already bought them day 1...glad I did too.
