Not even a week after we reported the original story regarding GameLoft’s horrific DRM policy, they listened to the concerns of many of their potential customers and has taken significant action. For starters, they’ve completely reversed their stance on redownloading games that aren’t in the Android market.
We’d like to announce you that policy regarding Android HD+ games sold through our own store is currently changed to allow you to re-download a game that you paid for.
Unfortunately this change will take a bit of time but rest assured we will announce once it is live.
Thank you for your patience.
That’s a great first step, but they’ve not implemented the functionality just yet (we’re chalking it up to them having to figure out a technical solution to minimize piracy risks). The heat was on them and they showed that they’re willing to do what it takes to make sure their customers feel comfortable buying their games. Has this move restored your faith in GameLoft?
[Thanks, Dave Loft!]
