The cracked version is out and working already - I am sure many people will be getting a refund then bittorenting the cracked / working version
True, but I think it could worsen the problem by offering it as an official download on their website. Besides there may be someone in the world who doesnt know how to check certain a certain scandinavian website for the torrent (tho i doubt it )
As i've said in other threads I am very much anti-drm as youve said that inconveniences paying customers and does little to stop piracy, sadly its the direction the games industry seems to be heading in. I hope they reconsider using it next year but I think its a little unrealistic to expect any change to this version.
