in a land of no drms…

in a land of no drms after the break…

in a land of no drms…

in a land of no drms (digital rights management, for the acronym-impaired), here’s what i’d buy right now & what price:

  • spore: $19.99
  • fallout 3: $29.99 (yeah, i know, i wrote a little while back about waiting until 2010 until i got this but, like i’m writing, this is in the land of no drms & i’m feeling rather fallout 3-y at the moment – it’ll pass).
  • dead space: $9.99 (it’s third person & supposedly “accessible” which translates to “consolized”).

it’s kind of sad that my purchases of software are now partially dictated by how heinous the copy protection is on any particular game. oh, you have securom? that’s nice. enjoy sitting on the shelf. you’re starforce? have fun in someone else’s hard drive.

and they wonder why piracy exists…
