Submission + - When will game publishers start selling cd keys?

DragonTHC writes: "There are those of you who download PC games from bit torrent. Some of you also buy PC games. For those who find bit torrent very convenient, when will the publishers start selling CD keys to legitimize the games that some people download? This just seems to make sense. Publishers could sell CD keys (perhaps for a slight discount) and completely eliminate the supply chain and retail costs. If every online game were to ditch the DRM and require a validated CD key, this could increase their profits. So why haven't publishers caught on?"
