Be it a lack of DRM or ongoing patches and support, certain developers and distributors make sure the customer knows just how much they value them. The PC platform is a rather dicey market, and there’s no end to the tales of companies growing upset over how many people ultimately played their product for free. The PC isn’t alone in the fight against piracy, though. The DS and PSP have had their fair share of piracy woes as well. In troubled times such as these, some developers have taken it upon themselves to get creative about how they stop people from downloading their games. Even more, some companies have decided to not even bother themselves with DRM. There are a lot of interesting things happening in the affront to piracy, and here are five particularly interesting ones."
