GOG - (Good Old Games) DRM Free Games Downloads

After spending nearly two months in the closed beta stage, classic game download site Good Old Games has now entered the public beta stages. This means that now anyone can sign up and download DRM FREE classic PC games for as little as £4 (or less). proudly advertises on its site "You won't find any intrusive copy protection in our games; we hate draconian DRM schemes just as much as you do, so at you don't just buy the game, you actually own it. Once you download a game, you can install it on any PC and re-download it whenever you want, as many times as you need, and you can play it without an internet connection."

How cool is that? (EA - take note!)

Also, another great thing about GOG is that unlike many other game download sites that provided 'old' games, all of the games listed here are tweaked to run perfectly not only on Windows XP, but Vista also - another reason to quit hating on Vista!

What are your thoughts on GOG's business model - do they have the right idea? Leave your comments below.
