Ohh liberty city - that should be interesting data (which we'll never see).

How many copies of GTA:IV are sold on the xbox 360 and how many on PS3 compared to the number of machines in circulation. The 360 has been hacked to hell whilst the PS3 is still completely uncracked.

That would actually just for once show the difference piracy does make - however of course the xbox number would be lower because of all the people who bought a replacement after their first one broke.

Simpler solution - stop running on windows and run directly on the hardware instead. Most people are on ATI/Nvidia GFX and there's not that many chipset manufacturers either.

Someone just needs to put together a package to scan what hardware is installed then tell the main program to use which selection of libraries.

Oh but wait - everyone would bitch about not being able to alt+tab and having to boot like a console!

Even so it whould work perfectly and totally stop PC piracy - I'm sure if Derek and Cliffski got together they could knock something up in a week or too.

(BTW Please don't take this idea seriously)

So why doesn't EA just take the money they used to license SecuROM and take those stupid ass viral marketers who invade game forums and just make a dedicated anti-piracy department (the EA Gestapo) that does nothing but search the web, torrent sites for cracks, ISOs of their games, etc. and contact (threaten with a lawsuit) those hosting them to take them down?

That really wouldn't work - the RIAA has been trying to get albums off the net for years and ended up going after the people downloading it instead in the end.

Even if they did manage to somehow kill bittorrent and the rest of the p2p applications it would just go back to the newsgroups and ftp sites anyway.

My main reason for liking this is that I'm a subscriber of Metaboli (Europe's Gametap). Unfortunatly I can't play some games that are as recent as two years old because their copy protection is not compatible with vista.

Unless M$ manage to totally change the TCP/IP stack with the next release of windows there should be no reason a phone home system should fail.

I don't see a problem either - I would imagine that hopefully, possibly the phone home system will be turned off after a while with a patch. That would mean EA could take the servers down and also give people who don't have internet (WTF SERIOUSLY???) at home the ability to play it.

If bioshock is anything to go by they'll start relaxing it pretty soon after release - just long enough to stop the initial wave of pirates who must have the game on (or before) it's release date.

BTW Don't you find it strange Derek has an opinion on copy protection - I mean seriously is there anyone anywhere in the world who has the basic computing knowledge required to install a pirate game that would for one single second think it would be worth the bandwidth and effort to pirate one of Derek's games?????

Or that violence is OK, but sex isn't.

OMFG this topic has actually made me think tonight - and to be perfectly honest I would must rather my daughter (9) watched violence then sex atm - simply because I don't want to answer the questions!!!!

Maybe that's where America's values came from - scared parents.

PS Before anyone looks up my history and asks; the other two can see neither sex nor violence nor the light of day if they keep winding me up mohahahaha

There are about 15 really sad things to say abot this whole thread and topic.

Like .... Why is "adult" content to you people and most of the world now always dealing with more sexual perversion, gratuitous ammounts of violence, killing and maiming innocents, gore, stealing extortion and the like.

Why isnt "adult" content ever being more responsible, doing good, helping others and not hurting innocent people?

Why do you guys only find enjoyment and satisfaction more and more every year only with ever increasing ammounts of this kind of garbage?

You people all need to seriously ask yourselves what kind of people you are and becoming as the days pass.

Ok now I've stopped laughing - have you considered that many of us are well adjusted people who do the type of things you list throughout the day and find a blast on a morally corrupt piece of trash quite relaxing at the end of a long day samarating.

I can honestly say that not only have I never had sexual congress with a prosititute in my life - nor have I even once considered then beating her to death to get my cash back.

Maybe that is why it is fun to do it in a GAME.

I bought this back in decemeber - got around to installing it in January and was really surprised when I got a mail telling me my account had expired a month later.

Totally forgot I had the thing installed - I think I logged in twice.

Still I'm sure some people love it.

30gb does seem suspiciously large - I think DSmart is actually setting up his own distributed computing network to try and calculate how best to ***********

(insert your best reason here - I had loads but most of them were insulting tbh)

EDIT: WHOOPS LOOKS LIKE ME AND THE LAST 3 POSTERS ARE IN THE WRONG THREAD. Still quite a funny idea

In fact, most of the people I find that bitch about Vista have either never run it. Have piss-poor hardware or have completely bought into the Mac ad's.

Or bought a brand new dell xps - had it blue screen within 5 hours and discovered that it would be 50/50 as to whether WoW would run for more then ten minutes (after 10 minutes it generally would hold together - unless it decided to PSOD).

That is my vista story. Honest. No bullshit. One of the biggest PC manufactures shipped me a PC which was made for gaming which could not run the biggest PC game on the market (which is so graphicly challenging that it is able to run on my grandfathers hamster-in-a-wheel powered antique).

Why did my new XPS fail so badly?

Was it the hardware?

NO - since rebuilding to XP x64 I have had precisely 0 - thats ZERO - blue, purple, red, green, polka-dot crashes. Not one. WoW goes in and stays in every time (although I've quit playing since I bought the machine). Every bloody thing works.

So was it Dells version of Vista?

Ok this I doubt. Yes I'll freely admit it did have some shitty ISP and that crappy M$ (doesn't)Works on it but really it was pretty vanilla.

So given that I personally accuse Vista.

About this time some people are gonna start bitching that Nvidia caused 28.8% of all vista crashes last year and ATI created 9%. But considering the amount of desktop PCs out there with only built in GFX cards (and a fair few of them are nvidia made remember) and the picture looks awfully more like vista has a problem with any GFX card.

I'm becoming pretty convinced that the next Windows recommended specs will include:

A) A braile compatable monitor.
B) A blind opperator.
C) At least 57.6 TB if storage for the OS.

(Oh the machine is 2 months old before you say that was my day 1 teething problems)

PS: Blue you go pwned.
PPS: Derek! your here. But I'm too tired to be bothered. Hmm then again - DSmart posting in a thred which was meant to be about the cutting edge of graphics technology. That actually funnier then the original joke

What are the main differences between our freedom of speech laws and theirs? Is it simply they have greater protection from libel suits or.....?

We don't have freedom of speech laws.

You could be charged with slander or liable in this country but it is still a hanging offense to commit treason. Please note when I say hanging I do mean it - you could rape and slaughter 500 children in this country and only get prison - but insult the queen and your dead.

Our law is in a mess. For instance it is actually LEGAL to urinate on the drivers side of any cab/taxi within london. Nobody is gonna try it because honestly if you piss on a cab drivers car he will kick your head in - but legally it's fine to do so.

The big problem is where as your laws are pretty new some of ours date back so far that some were carved into rock but a T-Rex.

Unfortunatly for us the government here in the uk never for one second thought it would be a good idea for people to be able to say what they thought. America likes to brainwash people into supporting their country with the pledge at school and the general "USA ALL THE WAY" attitude. GB on the other hand much prefer that we're shit scared of being executed if we say anything wrong.

But hey we haven't lost a war in very nearly 200 years so honestly who is right?

PS Fucking bollocks now I have a nice fat file with MI5 as well as the CIA. Shit.

Oh sweet - free moneyz. I'll go rob a few houses tonight to steal some more violent videa games which I can give to my children. That story should see nicely and be completely safe because amazingly our police are as professional as the media - they WILL NOT investigate a burglery unless you, the victim, know who did it.

Oh and I'm willing to bet this is the Daily Mail.

This is one of thoose guilty failures of mine. I own the game. It's upstairs in a box along with X3 and various others which no matter how much I try and love them I just cannot get into them.

I'm kinda proud of myself for playing bioshock last night for a few hours.

I love these games in principal - but in reality I just cannot get into them. Every single one of the elements are right - but at the same time some designer along the way forgot to inject it with my own brand of digital crack.

My main reason for getting the X-Fi was simply framerates. Popping in a hardware solution rather then software gained me an extra 10% performance on my old gaming rig. And was far more effective then any other upgrade for the same money.

It's also quite handy tou have your gaming headset plugged into you onboard sound and still have music coming from the addon if your in a 6 hour raid or similar.
