I think that some chinks or russians will crack it eventually.
I remember when ACII came out with their always online DRM, the game had no crack for quite a while, until people from some russian Counter Strike community wrote a motherfucking server emulator for it.
It just needs to become large enough of a problem, where every major game uses it.

Why not ? OP is right in that this denuvo trend should make people stop caring about shitty yearly release and instead appreciate the old gems in their backlog.

I still haven't even start playing pic related. Hopefully things will slow down soon so I can.

I've also heard that it causes actual damage to SSD hard drives. Till they fix that shit I'll forever refuse to buy anything with denuvo in it.

Breaking even means you can exist for another project, losing money means that you're fucked.

>>323673090
SSD's are trash hardware anyway and you shouldn't buy them. They have a limited number of reading and writing processes until they break, wheras THEORETICALLY an HDD can last forever.
If I'm not mistaken Denuvo basically does something to check for integrity within the actual DRM system while the game is running.

>Breaking even means you can exist for another project, losing money means that you're fucked.

Yeah, you exist but you sure as shit can't fund bigger, better projects. I doubt devs love being stuck in a loop of making shitty games over and over again.

Look at Platinum. If they didn't have so many publishers sucking their cock with licensed games and shit, they'd have gone down under a long time ago. Breaking even is not a sustainable business practice. The point of a business in the first place is to create something and make a profit off of it.

It was stated by Lord of the Fallen devs that it harms you HDD.

And by the way I'm retty sure that you'll be defending your product if it's harm you customers. Denuvo's devs ville never admit something that will make them lose money

No.
It doesn't harm an HDD, how would it even do that?
Unless it somehow employs an extreme privilege escalation exploit that gives it direct hardware access, it can't actually damage an HDD.

What he is actually referring to is the claim, which so far is unfounded that Denuvo continually writes to SSDs, therefore wearing them out of solid state memory only has a finite number of writes.

SSDs.

Because it got bad reputation. Ubisoft removed it from their games under pressure from players, who believed all the bullshit around it.

took a year to crack

DRM is the worst shit that happened to games.
I understand if you use this protection on some software that is business related but video games ?
Companies actually pay a third party to protect their content because of fear.
Games run worse and use more recources, consumers are annoyed as fuck and refund their game.
Sometimes even forced to be always online, its all bullshit.
Denuvo got cracked on both 32 and 64bit version since the first game that used it came out.
There is no magic behind the protection its always will be possible to crack it, only a matter of time and focus from the scene members.
The witcher 3 didnt had any DRM and sold more than any game in 2015, guess how many times it got pirated ?
Cant remember one single protection that lasted for so long that it became relevant.
>>
>>323682749
I'm convinced DRM is some carnival style sideshow to appease shareholders just so producers and devs can say their doing something about piracy regardless of how effective it actually is.

The discs are near indestructible, as long as you're not actively trying to destroy them.

The stylus and the other parts might break, but they are replaceable.

the most problematic thing about cracking is not denuvo it is that the debuggers for x64 code are currently in shit state and need forever and create even more junk code thats all

i think you should read up on how SSDs have progressed because there is absolutely no possible way you're reaching your SSDS write limit before a HDD will inevitably fail, you'd have to write well over 200 terabytes per year (580 gigs per day) for 10 years to get a modern SSD to fail
>>
>>323690005
>before a HDD will inevitably fail
Then you go buy an identical one and put in a new stylus.
The discs last forever.
>>
>>323690143
your SSD will not fail due to reaching its write limit unless you're specifically writing terabytes of data per day, this is not how normal people use their hard drives so telling random people that their SSD will fail because of a write limit is nonsense, it will not happen.
>>
>>323690693
SSDs don't just have a write limit, reading processes factor towards the limit as well.
Think about how an SSD works and you'll see that it has to be this way.

It also gives a reason to instill more consumer ability-limiting control and potential spyware to be used for further exploitation and transacting in the future.
