CD Projekt RED - Won't Sent Letters to Game Pirates Anymore Interview @ PC Gamer
PC Gamer has an interview with Agniezska Szostak, PR Specialist at CD Project RED. In it, she discusses why they sent letter to people who pirated Witcher 2. Here's a snip:
“Yeah, it was going on,” said Szóstak. “It was all about sending letters to people who we knew pirated [The Witcher 2], and say, ‘Hey, we know you have the pirated version of the game, and it would be nice if you could actually pay for it if you find the game good enough.’ “Although, once we started doing that, we got lots of feedback from the community—from gamers, and not even pirates, but actually legal gamers with a legal version of the game, saying, ‘You know what, guys? That’s not entirely right to do that.’ And they were like, ‘You’re saying that DRM is not such a great thing, and you try to give your games without it, but on the other hand, you’re doing something like that?
Here's another snip:
“I mean, we really do believe that it’s better to deliver high quality content and support gamers on several different levels. So, either releasing modding tools, or giving DLC for free, or doing huge updates which are like 10 gigs and give them out free. Instead of doing DRM, because that’s, frankly speaking, a pain in the ass for the users.”
