Well, I own the game as i own FarCry and many more, but for Crysis, I haven't even played through it cause I am still waiting for a GFX card to be released to play it "the way it's meant to...". Personally, I haven't pirated since I grew up and earned enough money with enough work to appreciate other peoples work. You could count that as a balance for people like poor neurorem-rs who cannot afford, who I want to tell that I believe his approach is plain wrong and hypocritical: 1st: If you cannot afford peoples labour, you're not entitled to it. No matter whether there are illegal copies flooding your street in Serbia, China, whereever or not, you're not entitled. You're not entitled to a product you have the personal believe you deserve it without paying the asking price, you're not entitled. If you think the asking price too much - even if true - reject it, don't steal it, again, you're not entitled. period. 2nd: I do not believe that pirates would ever buy a game nor can be convinced of what they are doing is wrong, neurokem is a prime example. 3rd: The industry is no less hypocritical themselves, they get what they deserve: If consoles give better protection of IP why the hell have the same games to be so much more expensive than their PC derivates. They lower the price to prevent piracy, on consoles they feel save to ask the price they want, what makes them dXXXX. 4th: the excuse of piracy rendering the release of a patch allready in the works for months unaffordable sucks big time, especially when releasing the patch as a 27e "new" tilte. That's betrayal of the paying customers and not harming pirates who will download both games. On top it will drive the more susceptible exactly into piracy for the next products with a good excuse. 5th: as per 1 and 4, I will not buy Warhead, may Crytek rot in hell! ;-) 6th: count me in as a possible loss if ever moving console exclusively, I don't own one.
