Resident Evil VII DRM CrackedPosted on Sunday, January 29 2017 @ 19:30:20 PST
In the latest back-and-forth of the endless, futile, stupid, self-destructive arms race with its own customers that is DRM, the great hope of late was Denuvo. Employing 64-bit encryption and apparently causing various cracker groups to throw up their hands in despair. Some (fools) crowed that it was the end of digital piracy. As with all DRM schemes before it, Denuvo went from 'uncrackable' to 'it takes a while' and now it's down to 'we'll have it broken before half the people who bought the game have even beaten it.'
According to Dark Side Of Gaming's John Papadopoulos, Resident Evil VII's Denuvo protection was cracked in four days (http://www.dsogaming.com/news/resident-evil-7-latest-version-of-the-denuvo-anti-tamper-tech-has-been-cracked-in-less-than-five-days/).
Ball's in the DRM-makers' court again.
