The Crysis 2 leak wasn't just rough on Crytek, it was heartbreaking.
Probably wouldnt of been so bad had they released a demo and shown support to their initial fanbase. Still, I dont think it will hurt them to bad when it comes to sales, the "beta" is old build and everyone I know who intended to buy the game will still do so, even though many have already got the "beta". Although, of course the final retail build will be on torrents shortly (all platforms).
As long as this game doesn't totally suck it should do well (it's being released on 3 gaming platforms)!
There's no excuse or justification for piracy, if you think a car or any consumer product isn't worth the money, it's not an excuse to steal it. The law is failing in prosecuting digital criminals, IP theft will continue so long as the government turns a blind eye to it. It's a shame really, these IPs are worth multiple millions of dollars so the theft is a lot worse than robbing a bank of 50 grand. It's like a modern day lawless wild wild west. People should get 10-15 years in prison for uploading it for public use and downloaders should get 3-7 for taking it. That may curtail this modern day crime spree.
you wouldnt download a pizza? yes, yes i would this is where everyone giggles....why so serious?
And I suppose you'll foot the bill for the 10s(maybe 100's) of thousands of new prisoners right? I mean its your idea. No? Didn't think so. But I guess there's no better use of tax payer money then to blow it on keeping those nerdy non-violent criminals off the streets...
You want to lock up everyone for 7 years for downloading games?. Do you want to pay to keep them millions of people in jail for seven years?. You have a lot to learn about the world kid.
not saying i agree but your assuming no one would learn from others if such a very strict sentence was to be incured from it. Again not saying i agree with him or you but if you do something outrageous like give 7 years for something like that im pretty sure alot will learn from it and the ones that don't will obv. become better criminals(I use that term loosely)
How about put them on a chain gang & get them to do general works outwith the Crytek offices, like picking up litter, sweeping the streets, doing some gardening, you know positive things instead of leaching off of peoples hard work..
Didn't this happen with the first crysis? I wonder how this keeps happening. This sucks.
That is why I support Sony againts hackers/pirates. They are not only ruining games, but ruined lives as well. I'm seeing possibilities of layoffs after this project is done..
that's if it doesn't sell. I think it will sell a nice amount. about 4 millions collectively.
You want to stop the strict DRM being imposed on everyones games? Blame the pirates! Pirates were there before the DRM crap, not the other way round as some idiotic people would have you believe...
Shhh hackers are only doing this to get homebrew man none of them have any intention of doing anything illegal or have any intention of doing anything but good. If you say otherwise your clearly wrong /s
Its cool Crytek I downloaded the leak I've pre-purchased on Steam Still going to get a disk version also. CryEngine 3 Real-time, all the time.
