To give you guys an update on this, I'm currently working with multiple teams to make this a reality. What I'm pushing for is a note right next to "Rating" on the very top of the page that will have "DRM" next to it and list the applicable DRM, or "DRM Free".
To address your point directly UW_Shocks, there isn't a PERSON who draws the pages on Amazon.com, there is a series of about 20 programs that pull together different, pre-programmed elements, to create a page. So, what I have been doing, is working with the various teams to create a new element "DRM", define what properties can go in that field, add it to the system that records information for these fields, and get the tech that builds the pages to identify that value and place it where I want it on the page...that's why it takes so long, because each step in that process requires a few layers of approval, and then the time necessary for a human to do the work to those systems.
Sorry for the delay, but we ARE making progress .
I was going to reply with a techie affirmation of this, but it seemed too long-winded. I'll just boil it down to: yes, this is accurate, and Tony's not bullshitting. Changes, however minor, take a lot of time on a system of that scale and complexity and the process it has to go through is complicated. It's no small feat to add.
It'll be awesome to have a clear indication on the page, and not having to tab to Google or Wikipedia to check will be nice. And this lessens the number of Steam/Origin questions, potentially.
