Without Piracy and Downloading hdd company's
wouldn't need to exist as there would be no need to keep
buying new bigger hard-drives as there would be nothing
you could possibly use to fill them except open source/shareware.
so lets say avarage app 20mb-40mb, you'd need what about
200gig for the rest of your life, so you'd buy 1 hdd, per computer.
no need for mass storage since there you'd have nothing to store.
without piracy think how many company's would be
out of business...?
CD/DVD Disc Makers,
TV Capture Card Makers,
Software Companys creating Ripping/Converting Apps.
The list goes on and on.
Without Piracy there would be no MASS demand
lol you all think buying this via steam is going to cut out this activation
re-install problem ... im sorry to inform you that is not the case
steam purchases and steam users are just as up in arms about this too
because not only has steam got their own validation DRM they are also
using the same SecurROM protection within the steam client on bioshock.
3-5 installs and boom! same problems as the retail bought copy.
so stop saying STEAM is going to be different it's actually on steampowered
homeFAQ page right now explaining its no different at all to the retail DVD.
so for the people who have over 20-30 games imagine the following.
all them games only allowed you a 5 re-install then your screwed
but here's the snag you can't load onto a pc at 1 time 20-30 games it would
not only mess the entery's into the registry up but most people dont have
that much hdd space to install all that crap on all at once just in fear of
never being to re-install it.
i for one keep 1 or 2 games max on my pc if i wanna play something else
i will un-install the other games to play new games and visa versa.
this is basically saying once im installed we dont want you playing any other
games and if you do were going to punish you by not allowing you to replay this
i can't beleive this is even legal is it legal? are they breaking the law doing this
all computers should be upto date with the latest anti-virus and firewall yep yep!
are they going to provide me the money to pay for norton? or for a high priced firewall ? when i bought my pc or got my braudband i didin't read in any terms or conditions or even get a fact sheet on the law stating that i had to go and buy expensive software.
next they are acting like a wireless network thats WEP secured is like fort knox christ you can hack a WEP secured router in less than 31 seconds with a simple AIRCRACK which if you google you get about a million hits how to do this..
so even if the network was secured it got cracked just like T K Max's credit card servers got hacked into whats the difference?
and my final point is the damn game isn't even available yet in
the uk so how come it's only the UK people who's been found?
what about the usa/france/germany? where the game is actually on sale
oh the game cost 11 dollars lol about 9 quid english money.
and to make it even more of a scam
The Game is Downloadable FREE from their own website.
many game company's and software are actually using p2p and torrents to distrobute their work how was anyone ment to know this wasn't a demo just like you could download from like any download.com shareware site?
VERY IMPORTANT I MEAN IT
i have not even recieved a single letter myself
but i have been 4 steps ahead and acted for myself
by getting to the bottom of this so im prepaired.
i know you don't know me from adam but for the people who's had these letters its a scam and i will prove it now!
By doing what i tell you to do now you have nothing to lose but i assure you i am 100% right.
if im not 100% right im sure you'll just come back and blacken my name but i assure you if you trust me you'll do this.
