Will you buy RA3 and support DRM?

  1. Yes, I love the game too much to care about DRM

    how can they prove you dont own assassins creed? thats total bullshit. thats 200% illegal, if you have any documented proof of that incident, i suggest you go talk to a lawyer (first buy a copy of assassins creed =D)

    I use Sky Broadband and i havent had any trouble but my neighbour whoo also uses sky was usin torrents all the time he had all the latest games when they came out he didnt pay for a single thing he had on his comp except Vista and he was sent a letter from Sky saying what he was doin was illegal and that his contract was now void they cut him off myself not being very good with computers but even i understoiod what they did they had a list of suspect "heavy Users" and they looked at the number of incoming connections to each this is the main diffference between HTTP direct downloads and Torrents as they can have 100 connections att once so all in all i wont risk it

    But i dont get how the guy who assassins creed how they Knew it was assassins creed without them downloading it too

    What exactly does this crack do? Enable you to update the game?

    Cracks remove copy protection / drm from a game usually so it can be played without using the original cd. However in this case it would allow you not to use one of your limited amount of activations or play the game.even if you are unable to activate it.

    Well if you don't need the disk in the hard drive to play it could you not just borrow it from a freind or rent it and you have it forever...? Could you play online if you did this?
