Restrictive DRM punishes those who legally purchase a game, I know this from experience. I fail to see how any intelligent person could not see the backlash coming from this form of DRM, as all it does is persuade the core audience that they would be better off getting a pirated version (which all of these DRM restricted games eventually, if not immediately get cracked) Gaming companies should learn from PC gaming company Valve, who treat their customers right with PERSONAL customer support, FREE content updates, and NO RESTRICTIVE DRM RUNNING IN THE BACKGROUND. good day sirs
