5 Interesting Affronts to Piracy

Koku writes: "While none of us here would ever advocate piracy, some companies out there go out of their way to ensure that paying customers are receiving a product that doesn’t infringe upon them too much. Be it a lack of DRM or ongoing patches and support, certain developers and distributors make sure the customer knows just how much they value them. The PC platform is a rather dicey market, and there’s no end to the tales of companies growing upset over how many people ultimately played their product for free. The PC isn’t alone in the fight against piracy, though. The DS and PSP have had their fair share of piracy woes as well. In troubled times such as these, some developers have taken it upon themselves to get creative about how they stop people from downloading their games. Even more, some companies have decided to not even bother themselves with DRM. There are a lot of interesting things happening in the affront to piracy, and here are five particularly interesting ones."

Because you do it lol. I pirate only a couple of games, I eventually end up buying it like Crysis Maximum edition. Crytek method didn't work with me since the cracks were fixed.

i am one of the most respectful people you will ever meet dude. but don't take my word for it. you dont know if i am sincere in what i say. you dont know if i am compassionate person that volunteers and helps people, or just a thief on the internet. it is all hearsay and you will never know the truth because people like me dont care for telling people like you the truth, because from what you wrote it sound like you accused me of stealing, sori but i am not on your level, that level is far to low for someone like me. though i dont hate you, ill just take that as a joke ok ^_^y

I say that 5-6 hours games don't deserve to be bought for 60$. I gladly pirate those. Just for the record I pay for my own games with my own salary and that is precisely the reason why I value my money and choose my games carefully.

Not every game out there deserves to be bought. If the length of the game equaled its price, you'd be suprised how many games would be super cheap. Imagine the look on people's face when they shell out 60$ and finish the game in 1 day.

I'll always support developers that deserve to be supported, but those greedy bitches that produce 5 hour games will never get my money.

What a lame-ass excuse! So, if a certain game does not deserve the $60 price tag due to length, does that mean it automatically deserves to be pirated for free, or do you split the difference and send the publisher a check for $30?

The Batman trick was quite and intriguing idea that I wish more games would take on.

I liked Crytek's approach a bit more :P

Some people who pirated Crysis Warhead were stuck with the chicken gun.

Ziriux3033d ago

I miss the point you're trying to make. :(

HarryMonogenis3033d ago

..sounds like an amazing service. Being able to download it on as many computers as you like is awesome. It would be cool if they were able to do that with more recent games.

BannedForNineYears3033d ago

I would hate to be a victim of number 1 xDDD

JD_Shadow3033d ago

Yeah. I think some complaints that they can't do that because of privacy issues came about. Some people need to follow the laws of their countries, and two wrongs don't make a right.
