PC gaming fans can access the new blog post here:
In his latest blog post, John opens by explaining to his readers about the increasing online trend of cracked games.
“As most of you know, the PC gaming industry has been suffering in the past few years due to illegal copies of video games being cracked and posted online for free. Interestingly enough, cracking a game is not an easy task, and you have to have some serious programming skills to do so successfully” he says.
John then proceeds to give a real world example. He places focus on the fairly recent release of the game Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six, Vegas 2.
John explains that users who legitimately purchased the game noticed a number of bugs in it. However, these same problems were not evident in the illegally downloaded cracked copies.
Ubisoft then did something very surprising. The company found the pirated crack that was available online, supposedly developed by the RELOADED pirate group. They then took it and used it as an official crack for future versions of the legitimately purchased copies.
As John makes clear, this move from Ubisoft was a little surprising:
“This is extremely ironic considering the fact that Ubisoft above other company’s have been the most adiment in their attempts to thwart illegal pirates” he explains.
John then points his readers towards a link where they can learn more about this.
