As expected, Spore is by far the most downloaded game on BitTorrent, in part thanks to the DRM that came with the game.
When we posted about the impressive download rate on Spore - inflated due to the DRM that was put into the game - EA doubted our statistics. EA’s Mariam Sughayer said that every BitTorrent download was not a successful copy, and that several downloads didn’t work, were buggy, or contained viruses. We wont deny that on badly moderated torrent sites, malicious torrents probably can be found. However, this constitutes less than 1% of the available torrents, and they are not added to our statistics.
Just goes to show that DRM only hurts honest people, well in some cases the developers. I have no dought that they would sell more games without the DRM.
Yup, there are many thousands playing pirated games even if they have SecureROM. That crap only hurts the real consumers who buy the game and have to put up with it.
