PC Games/Hardware/Microsoft
EA is producing statistics produced by rectal extraction about how people supposedly don't really mind their DRM.

?We implemented a form of DRM and it's something that 99.8 per cent of users wouldn't notice,? claimed Riccitiello, ?but for the other 0.2 percent, it became an issue and a number of them launched a cabal online to protest against it.? The use of SecuROM in EA?s recent PC games, including Spore, Mass Effect and Crysis Warhead, has caused a lot of controversy on the Internet, resulting in hundreds of one-star reviews on Amazon.
99.3% of statistics are made up on the spot, 89.5% of statistics are pulled from someone's butt, and... oh yes... it's incredibly easy to lie with statistics.

EA ought to learn better. PC gamers are TIRED of our platform being killed because of morons who make stuff that just plain doesn't work or tries to mess with other parts of OUR computer systems. And we're tired of the PC getting no love from developers because so few people buy PC games any more... because of all the nonsense you have to go through to get them to work.
