I'm pretty sure many of the recent online activation games haven't been cracked until after release. I have been shown huge forum threads on pirate boards for games like Mass Effect where pirates complain back and forth over not finding a working copy of the game on torrents.

There is a massive difference between finding the files online, which most people post as proof no DRM works, and finding working files that play the whole game.
