Serious Sam 3: BFE vs Pirates

DSOGaming has word on an anti-piracy measure in Serious Sam 3: BFE, Croteam's just-released first-person shooter prequel. Apparently illegal copies of the game will spawn an immortal speedy red arachnoid that will hunt down the player. This trailer shows the thievery-hating scorpion in action.

Far as I know, FADE was pretty reliable and only kicked in for truly illegitimate copies of Armed Assault and such - unless I'm mistaken.
You are FADE was a neat idea, but ...

1. You cannot test all PC and OS configs out there. There will be ALWAYS legit customers who will experience bugs cuased by the DRM.

2. The DRM HAS TO TELL the player, that he plays an unlicenced copy. If not, the player just thinks the game is buggy and every chance of him buying the game is gone forever. I am always baffled by the sheer amount of stupidity when a dev proudly presents his new DRM trap, but always forgot to tell the player what causes this "special" behaviour.

3. There will be ALWAYS a working crack. Always.

4. There is still no proof that DRM will increase revenue.
