What exactly? That big publishers don't care about DRM free? Well, congratulations!
(and how I have missed that thread!)
No, specifically that the THQ bundle was a bad thing and that Humble Bundle's change of policy has been detrimental to the quality of their bundles.
(and you're welcome!)
... in your
opinion. If you don't buy into the whole DRM marketing angle and only judge the bundles by the games in it, then the THQ bundle was pretty inconsequential. While there obviously isn't any way to prove it, I think that even if there hadn't been a THQ bundle, Deep Silver wouldn't have bothered with the inclusion of DRM free Sacred 2.
And the inclusion of the THQ bundle hasn't change the Indie Bundles a bit (afaik). The only tangible change was that big publisher can use the HB structure, but that hasn't affected the other bundles. (similar how the android bundles had no influence on the indie bundles, or the weekly bundles).
Now, we will part on this with different opinions, as there simply is no way of knowing, but do you honestly
think Deep Silver cares about DRM free enough to include Sacred 2 DRM free if there hadn't been a THQ bundle?
