id’s Creative Director in Favor of Always-On DRM
id creative director Tim Willits is in favor of always-on DRM, and he made his case to Eurogamer by citing the positives that come with such a horrible, draconian anti-piracy measure.
In the end, it’s better for everybody. Imagine picking up a game and it’s automatically updated. Or there’s something new you didn’t know about, and you didn’t have to click away. It’s all automatically there.
Diablo 3 will make everyone else accept the fact you have to be connected. If you have a juggernaut, you can make change. I’m all for that. If we could force people to always be connected when you play the game, and then have that be acceptable, awesome.
I’m really sort of horrified by this whole exchange. I’m guess Willits doesn’t have Comcast.
