Amazon DRM Backlash… Again. Little Crysis Warhead Never Had a Chance

Negative Gamer writes:

"Remember all that fuss over Spore having SecuROM DRM? DRM so harsh you had to phone up EA and explain yourself if you had the nerve to install it more than a few times? Now, remember when you found out that Crysis Warhead had SecuROM, even on steam?

Yes, it's that time again! Get ready for our soon-to-be-weekly feature: "EA Put Shitty DRM on a Game and so People Give it a 1 Star Review on Amazon"!"

just stop with the DRM.

it doesn't stop piracy at all. all it does is frustrate people.

Agreed. As a matter of fact, highly restricting DRM not only does not work in subverting piracy, it actually encourages it. Spore rapidly became the most pirated game of all time in the space of a few days after it's release. Not only were people pirating the game, but people that had originally intended to pay for it, were also pirating it just because they didn't want the damned DRM restrictions. Normally, I pay for games but in the instance I see these huge restrictions, I'll just download the damn thing and save myself the headaches dealing with EA's 'wreck' support.

Why'd you get two disagrees Rick? Oh wait.....I think those people were Rick roll victims. :P

We have to get out there and tell these damn companies that we don't want this DRM Installation crap on our computers. If stardock can go full out with no copyright protection at all why hasn't anyone followed suit.
