  • Glad to see Warhead up there, are they tracking digital downloads as well? Lets hope it's enough for the 3rd Crysis to be out on PC and not next gen consoles;)

    Funny though, either people who pirate games bit the bullet and purchased a copy or...More people purchased this one based on price and low cost of hardware (4870 for about 200 will work very nice) to run it, or... The piracy protection they used was better this time around.

    I know it's a dead horse but I really think that if you make a good PC game, people are just going to buy it in numbers. Meanwile the number who pirate it will be the usual bunch of losers. Why the harsh word? Simple, if the number 1 gaming platform in the world (thats PC gaming) go's under or becomes watered down, I can thank the pirates:)
