Going to be completely honest- I wish they'd develop an anti-piracy tool where if somebody used a pirated copy upon running the .exe it'd instantly launch a command that'd cause the unit to reboot into a non-windows environment where every drive connected to the computer (internal or external) would be formatted simultaneously. For folks with really large drives they'd likely have figured out what was going on and powered off the computer before the format got very far- but at least it'd render most of their data useless... recovery programs only work so well.

That'd be awesome.

Does Crysis 2 even have an anticheat for the multiplayer ? I know the demo didn't as i encountered many hackers on there.

Difference is that on the consoles they can ban the players making them unable to play online ever again with any game... far worse punishment in my opinion. If this is true this will hurt the Crysis 2 MP Community significantly since then I doubt there is a anti-cheat system.

You must not have been a PC gamer for long if you are surprised by this news. It was only a matters of time . . . in this case seconds or hours.

Wow, retarded Crytek didn't even bother with any MP anti-piracy measures. Either they didn't think it was worth it or it just show how much work they put into the PC version.
