Well if people didn't illegally copy games, we wouldn' need it would we? It tends to be the small minority who spoil things for everyone else.
Bullshit. Video game sales are higher than ever. Yes, piracy is a legitimate problem, but the idea that publishers need draconian DRM in order to survive is absolutely not true. It's pure, short-term greed. Nothing more.
The real problem that publishers face is the ludicrous budgets of AAA games, but that's a discussion for another day.
