            Except not.There was a working fix for it from day one. There were many amateur hack and workarounds that did not work but 3 reliable cracks were out in the first two days as reported by pcgameshardware.de

        Rockstar shouldn't care about the pirates. They should care about potential buyers. And it looks like this time we were forewarned about the POS port they tried to shove down our throats (not to mention GfWL and RGSC).
