EA: "DRM is a failed dead-end strategy"

EA Labels president Frank Gibeau responds to "conspiracy theories" about SimCity and puts his foot down when it comes to DRM (EA, Industry, PC, SimCity)

"You don't build an MMO because you're thinking of DRM - you're building a massively multiplayer experience, that's what you're building"

No.... no you're not. I can't write a hundred bucks on a piece of green paper and try buying his fucking game with it so why is he trying to pass off Simcity as an MMO? While we're creating imaginary products I'm off to play the intense turn based strategy game Bioshock infinite before taking a turn with the somber and chilling first person shooter about an Italian plumber faced with demons from his past.

Reads title "EA: "DRM is a failed dead-end strategy" I call BS
Reads article, because DRM has failed, they decide to go the MMO route, to ensure that an "always online" requirement is still involved.

EDIT: DRM can allow a computer to systematically disobey its owner. Which is what Simcity does when not connected to the internet, forces you to quit playing, and gives you a timer
