Gameloft Getting Better at DRM

According to a happy Gameloft customer’s blog, they recently updated their digital rights management (DRM).  We have covered Gameloft’s antics in the past, but this blog post by David Loft praises Gameloft’s new stance on DRM and offers a little explanation taken straight from an email by Gameloft.  In short, the email summarizes how each game is tied to a specific device and not to a specific user, therefore making the game not transferable to another device.  Since Loft is upgrading to a new device, Gameloft simply sent him a new copy of the app he wanted.  Isolated incident or great customer service?

I don’t have any Gameloft game experience myself, but please feel free to sound off in the comments about your experiences with Gameloft.

Thanks to David Loft for the heads up.
