GameLoft Changes DRM Policy on HD Android Games


Last week, many of you may have read of GameLoft’s outrageous DRM policy regarding HD Android games sold through their site.  Fortunately, due to many complaints and the negative response from the Android community, GameLoft has changed their stance.  They listened to the concerns of many of their potential customers and have taken significant action. For starters, they’ve completely reversed their stance on re-downloading games that aren’t in the Android market.  We don’t details and specifics yet about how many downloads you are allowed, but when we do we will certainly let you know.

Overall, I think it’s great that GameLoft changed their stance.  It really shows that they care about their customers. Good job GameLoft!

So, what are your thoughts? Will you buy a GameLoft game for your Android handset?

  1. No. I won't be buying GameLoft games because they DO NOT care about their customers. If they did then they wouldn't have done any of this in the first place or event be using any DRM crap at all. The only reason they have changed their policy is because the negativity was affecting their profits. It's all about the money.

    Maybe if they release it into the Android Market I will have a better view of them. Until then. Die in hell GameLoft.

  2. First they throw lame j2me ported games to us, then they don't believe in android,
    then they don't believe in android market, now drm.
    For me, it's too many mistakes for one company. I'm not going to buy their games in the future.

  3. Simply the fact that they tried this crap tells me that they DO NOT care one bit about their customers. It's not exactly news that DRM is bad for the paying customer and doesn't solve the piracy problem.

  4. I tried to go to their site to buy a game, but their FAQ still says you only get ONE download, and you still have to buy the game again if you want it on a different device/etc.

    Also, it only lets me select Verizon as my carrier in the US. WTF

    I dont think ill be buying a game from them until it hits the Android Market.
