Bolded where wrong. There's quite a few titles that have never been (and most likely never will be) cracked. If you're wondering which games I'll give you a hint for one of them: It was bundled with a lot of video cards.

Steam is ok too, But i wont be able to have russian voices on release theres mods for CS and CoP to "fix" the voices but there was not really a need on SoC as they actually had a accent.

HAWX 2?

It was actually cracked for a bit IIRC. The always-on DRM server can and was spoofed.

Not the PC version. Can't say the same for the console version(s).

I don't really feel like getting an infraction for linking pirate sites, etc. so I'll concede to.

"most-all" games are cracked regardless of DRM.

The Witcher 2 had no DRM, and I think that did pretty well sales-wise.

Regardless of what DRM a publisher goes with, it's going to be cracked, that is a fact. They're only hurting their legitimate player-base by including crippling DRM. If you have to go with any method of DRM, go with Steam. I think if GSC goes ahead with this, it could set a very dark precedent for PC games, and if publishers follow suit, it could mean games are completely unplayable offline, and impossible to play 10 years from now.

The groups kinda gave up in cracking it. We'll see if that DRM is truly uncrackable when AC2: Revelations comes out, since that's a much higher anticipated game.

CD Projekt have said they expect to sell 2 million copies by the end of the year IIRC. Which for a PC only title in a niche market is phenomenal and proof that if you make a good game, people support with their wallets.

For sure. Seeing them do well makes me feel warm and fuzzy.

FACT.

PC Gamers support and show loyalty to publishers who support and care about them.

I don't think the same could be said for any other platform.
