Microsoft is allegedly working on a system that detects the users body movement, no control required. If they get that to work well I'm thinking its going to trump the shit out of any controller based system. http://kotaku.com/5236404/microsofts-full-body-motion-controller-revealed
There was a study done recently that showed music pirates actually buy more music online than those that don't pirate any at all. Granted this probably does not apply as well to games, but I think stardock having some faith in the consumer base has paid of for them in more ways than one. Not having to deal with pain in the ass DRM has made me appreciate them even more.
