Avalanche founder Cristofer Sundberg has made his feelings about Digital Rights Management abundantly clear, stating “piracy has scared the market to start implementing ridiculous DRM solutions.”
These, Sundberg feels, “only limits the consumers that actually PAY for their games.”
That’s a view which will certainly resonate with anybody who’s tried to legitimately play a Ubisoft title on the PC recently.
Sundberg was speaking to CVG, and concluded with a heartwarming message of diversity: “I wish that future PC projects are treated just the same way as we would treat Wii, PSP or DS – they are treated as separate projects in order to deliver a different but equally entertaining experience to all players.”Avalanche released the PC version of Just Cause 2 with no DRM, although the game was a bit rubbish in a different way because it didn’t support older DirectX 9 graphics cards (despite the Xbox 360 version running on DX9 hardware.)
