BioShock Activation Not Permanent

Levine Talks BioShock’s Checkered Launch on Next Generation talks about technical issues, outrage over being mean to the Little Sisters, and the likelihood there will be a BioShock sequel. Meanwhile, Joystiq interviews BioShock's Ken Levine about success and harvesting Little Sisters covers similar topics, and includes the revelation that the reviled SecureROM activation scheme will eventually be going away:
Given the internets and what they are -- with their tubes and all -- I want to sort of talk about the concerns people have. We take the concerns people have very seriously. There's been some concern like, "What happens if it's three years from now, or ten years from now, when I want to play this game. And, you know, Irrational Games has been hit by a meteor?" We will unset the online activation at some point in the future -- we're not talking about when. If people have concern about that they shouldn't be worried about that. This activation is for the early period of the game when it's really hot and there are people really trying to find ways to play the game without buying it. Of course, there are a lot of people who are legitimately trying to play it. We're not trying to be Draconian, we're trying to find a balance.

yeah yeah whatever. I'm sure all 200,000 pirates on the warez board i saw moaning there was no crack are just 'idiots' and 'wrong'. Im sure your buddy who has cracked it was playing it with elvis last night on his moonbase.
The game isn't cracked.
