This time from the folks at Paradox.
Fred Wester, CEO of Paradox, talked with GameSpy and discused how his company has been anti-DRM for nearly a decade.
“If you take something like Sony’s DRM, SecuROM – it’s a waste of money. It will keep you protected for three days, it will create a lot of technical support, and it will not increase sales I know this for a fact, because we tried it eight years ago, and it never worked for us. Two major reasons: it costs money and it makes you lose money, and the other is that it’s so inconvenient to customers. If you’re a CEO, you need to cover your back. And the people who ask, the board, know nothing about games. They’re there because they’re some investment company or something, and they ask ‘So what are you doing to protect our game from pirates?’ And then they can reply ‘We’re buying this solution from Sony.’”
Folks — It’s math. Evil math.
