GOG.com is happy to host this sale due to their strict stance against DRM. “Gamers should be able to play their games on any device they own in any location, no matter the Internet quality,” a paragraph on their site states. “There is only one way to ensure that: no DRM.”
With outcry coming against publishers such as EA and the anti-piracy measures being taken with Microsoft’s Xbox One, DRM policies have entered the limelight and become a subject of public debate. GOG.com is proud of the fact that every game for sale on the site is DRM-free and will stay DRM-free forever. “At GOG.com. we talk a lot about the importance of giving gamers the ability to play their games where they want, whenever they want, and how they want. None of the games in our sale have DRM, and none of our games ever will.”
