Publishers Are Scared To Go DRM Free

Michal Kicinski, CEO of CD Projekt has commented that videogame publishers are afraid to go DRM free on PC titles, being reluctant to CD Projekt’s new digital distribution project,, thanks to its rights-free policy:
“We’re trying to convince them there is nothing to be afraid of. DRM-free, that is something they are really scared of, but on the other hand we can say ‘all of those games are available pirated widely so it’s better to sell them for small money than make the customer’s life difficult and get some more revenues’.”

“We’re gamers and we are using all these digital distribution platforms. I had Steam but I had the problem that my internet provider could not work with it so I couldn’t use the games I bought. I think that if somebody is paying for the game then they deserve own it, not with a certain list of conditions and sometimes the list of conditions can be long.”
