Tiny minority cares about DRM, says Riccitiello


Speaking to PaidContent, EA head John Riccitiello has claimed that the controversy surrounding Spore DRM was kicked up by ".2 percent" of users, and that the vast majority of customers would never even notice the measure was in place.

"We're still working out the kinks," he said on the subject of disc protection. "We implemented a form of DRM and it's something that 99.8 percent of users wouldn't notice. But for the other .2 percent, it became an issue and a number of them launched a cabal online to protest against it.

"I personally don't like DRM. It interrupts the user experience. We would like to get around that. But there is this problem called piracy out there."
