valve knows multiplayer online games require genuine copy of the game to play so people can't pirate them and play online with other player, It's Good move in my opinion.
I was watching a video when they talked about the top 10 concerns about what they worry about making a game, and none of them were piracy, If I recall correctly, Gabes vision is essentially making a game so that its to good not to buy. Besides, It happens and will happen, even multiplayer games are pirated, and played on hacked/cracked servers. Sometimes even allowed on normal servers.
Personally, I think it's because less people are interested in single player games these days, online connectivity is where its at currently.... I mean look how many people plug into facebook or other social networking sites.
And aside from hl2 and a few other select games, I will ALWAYS prefer coop with a buddy over the single player by itself. I think majority of others feel the same way.
Edit* I think i'm the only one who read that in the way that, singleplayer is the same but others can join in much like diablo series? If anything Gabe threw that out there so he could see what the response would be like, thats an option too. Valve has always been more about the customer and gamer than the other company's, online time will tell.
