Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli talks about software piracy
According to Crysis maker Cevat Yerli software piracy reaches a new peak. Customers don't want to buy their software on data media anymore but via download.
Cevat Yerli recently talked about the current situation of the games industry concerning software piracy. Yerli sees the main problem of the retail market in those customers who download games directly, for free and above all much faster than they could go to the retailer.
A rethinking is taking place concerning how players want to consume their games. In Yerli's opinion a change of current business models is absolutely necessary as the Crysis maker says in an interview on developmag.com. More and more people want to buy their software online. That offers more security concerning software piracy and the software reaches the customers much faster than CDs/DVDs could ever do.
What do you think? Will you continue to buy your games and software on CD/DVD at the retailers or do you agree with Yerli? Please tell us in the commentaries.
