How is it a service problem? You go to a website and click "purchase" and poof you have it downloading to your computer how much easier does it need to be? You think because you need to log in sometimes that was the breaking point? Hate to say this, piracy has been around longer than Denuvo has existed, longer than "always connected" requirements were on. Not sure what delivery method you think people want, I mean naked big titty women delivering games on a silver platter for you then give you a blow job afterwards? Yeah I'm sure people will happily pay $60 for that game too.Exactly, piracy is a service problem. You need to sell what people want and deliver it how they want it, that's the key to ending piracy, not denuvo or any other protection.
Hey, you don't want to buy our games? How about if we put it in a cage you can't take it out of, and you have to have an online connection to start the game, and you are not allowed to modify it in any way, will you buy it then?
Ultimately creators put a price on what they make, which is effectively entertainment, it's not food, water, or some other essential of life, it is by all accounts a luxury and it's a luxury that you can have just in a different form (different games), and you either pay that price or you don't get to enjoy that entertainment. Piracy is a way of saying "ho ho ho we're going to enjoy it ... and not going to pay you a single dime", you can't tell me way back in the days of 5.25" floppies that piracy was about a "service problem", piracy is a way to get shit for free... PERIOD, trust me I know, I went to my fair share of Commodore 64 workshops at the local rec center that had some guy talking about shit you could do up front, and the vast majority of people were in the back swapping floppies and making copies, oh and the guy talking up front... yeah after he finished he came back and got some shit too. Something that was literally NEVER said "What? We gotta go to a store and buy games? Damn I wish they'd invent something where everyone can just get on a computer and type stuff in and get games that way, I totally would pay for that instead of sitting back here spending all this time copying floppies". Free is free. Argue that it's an economic thing and certain segments of the population can't afford it, but feel they're entitled to have it anyways, argue that games cost too much in general and you're making some sort of stance against a company for it's business practices, but at the end of the day it's because it's fucking free. Sure piracy may in some way get lessened if things get cheaper, but eventually people want shit for free, they'll get it for free. How many Hollywood movies are coming out super early digitally because of Coronavirus? Nope, they're all being pirated with good quality rips super early because of Coronavirus. This is not a fucking delivery/service problem, it's a fucking "I want it and don't want to pay for it" problem.
And yeah I'm being a hypocrite here, but I'm not trying to justify what I do.
