Valve releases warez version of Half Life 2 to catch people

Posted on Thursday, November 18 2004 @ 17:09:44 CET by


A Half Life 2 site reports that Valve has released a 'warez version' of Half Life 2 which is distributing through the Bittorent network. According to that site this warez version from Valve keeps track of people that downloading it and will ban these people from the Steam network.
We're running a bit of an experiment. We're keeping track of the accounts that do this and will be shutting them off.

die beste idee die ich je von einem spielhersteller gesehen habe .. auch wenn es nur ein gerücht ist .. es wird einige leute davon abschrecken das game zu laden .. :-) wäre alles so intwelligent von valve wie diese idee dann würde niemand mehr steam probleme haben :-)

einfach nur nice .. nice work well done :-)

ridiculous, who would be stupid enough to try to activate a warez version. Besides a true warez file would neither require activation or steam at all.
