Christopher Sundberg, top dog at Avalanche, creators of Just Cause 2, has come out against DRM claiming that it's stupid and "does not stop piracy". He also reasoned that developers should try giving hackers a job.
"Piracy is always worrying," said Sundberg, talking to CVG. "It's never been a helpful thing. We'll let our publishers fight that battle. But I mean, 50 percent of the people that work for me come from a hacker background - that's true."
After suggesting that employing hackers might help the industry, he then claimed that not only does DRM fail to stop piracy, it's actually an insult to gamers who purchase PC games legitimately.
"The DRM does not stop piracy," he claimed, "it just punishes the people who have actually paid for the game. It's completely useless. Forcing people to be online all the time and so on doesn't show respect to the people who actually buy PC games."
