It seems the DRM debate finally is taking a step in the right direction and that some publishers are finally understanding their customers. EA recently annonced that The Sims 3 will be shipped without “DRM methods that feel overly invasive or leave you concerned about authorization server access in the distant future”. What this means remains to be seen but EA said that there would be some disc-based copy protection and a serial code.
This is happy news for us games who perfer to buy our games. After hearing about The Sims 3, and knowing that Prince Of Persia and World of Goo were released without DRM there might still be hope for consumer friendly products?
