I feel as though DRM makes using a product harder. It something that can mess up your computer if implemented wrong, cause a hassle because you don't have an internet connection when you want to play the game and is just a down right annoyance. DRM in music is terrible too, buying a song in itunes means that i can only use the music on an ipod or burn it to a CD. That doesn't seem right to me and I feel that its limiting digital sales. As a paying consumer I as a rule avoid anything with DRM in it like the Plague. Thank you for reading this and For making this available.
