These guys are going to suffer from a big loss,I swear.There are many people around the world who buy the original games and don't have access to good Internet connection.They aren't going to play the new wave of games with this extreme, ridiculous security system,surely.And it would be a serious harm to their rep,in poorer countries like the ones in The Latin America,The Middle East and Africa.In these countries, Non-pirated games are RARE!There are many fans of these big companies,though.It's not only a security system,but a Capitalist way to annoy the 3rd worlders.Ideas?

It's their software, not yours. They do as they see fit with it. If you don't like it then develop your own software to compete with it. It may be completely unreliable but they are within their rights. Blizzard does the exact same thing but much more reliable with StarCraft 2 but nobody hasn't made any complaints so far.

Besides, I'm sure 3rd world countries need to be using the money in better ways than buying the latest games.

Most companies don't really have much of a reason to listen to people in such areas. Their profits aren't too big in those countries, and as you said, most people pirate the games anyway.

Nobody is complaining about SC2 yet. For the simple fact when its finally released they will start to moan if it uses the same DRM methods now employed by EA and Ubisoft.

Why complain about it? Sure some will say "My connection isnt that great and drops out every 2hrs or so" which is fair enough. But the majority complain because they cant get it for free yet, so they blame everything but themselves assuming that they are entitled to everything for free.

It is enjoyable watching those kiddies moan in nfohump forums. AC2 reached 104 pages, which is mostly moaning and blaming Ubisoft. And for some reason dont understand that the Russian DoS bots are actually harming the legit users and also think these bots will eventually get the DRM removed so then they can get a working copy of the game. How wrong they are.

This is just a start to this type of DRM, the next stage as ive said before, is for the game to have a specific memory location set aside for coding that deals with health etc for a particular map, and is re-written per mission or map change or level. Making it very very difficult to crack, as the cracker would then have to play the game 100% to get all opcodes used and then somehow rewrite a new executable with all those opcodes. Which im sure most wont even bother with.

I doubt that... Mainly it is simply to get rid of pirates, even though it may effect honest players, it is simply steps in taking DRM to more extreme levels.

One day all of the files will be encrypted or simply streamed to your computer while using a program which processes the data and streams it to your computer. The data will probably all be in one big file, and completely inaccessible to users. Sure, it may eat up more of your bandwidth then right now, but I don't doubt that one day it will work like that.
