Get Fined For Downloading The Witcher 2

Recommended Posts

CD Projekt is worried about piracy -- specifically, as it concerns the developer's upcoming, adult-oriented RPG, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings -- and understandably so. As a single-player-only PC title, The Witcher 2 is awfully ripe for pirating. However, the Polish developer is hoping to counteract these illicit acquisitions by more doggedly pursuing those who play the game illegally. CD Projekt co-founder Marcin Iwiński recently told Eurogamer that "we are signing with legal firms and torrent sneaking companies" to hunt down gamers who download The Witcher 2 unlawfully.

Such offenders will be sent a letter demanding they pay a fine -- the sum of which was left unspecified, though it will be more than the game's suggested retail price. Though it sounds a bit like the RIAA's anti-piracy scare tactics, Iwiński said, "We don't want to be so harsh, but there is a chance that this might happen to some people if they download illegally." Or, in other words, don't make CD Projekt use its angry voice, because it's going to hurt them a lot more than it's going to hurt you.

mhm...

"We know you're out there! ... We'll find you!... We know where you are...! We do! ... really!.... "

Isto faz me lembrar a historia que se passou com a ACS Law Firm... Venha mais publicidade dessa venha.

(pessoalmente não sou grande fã do primeiro não gostei nada da jogabilidade, não sei mesmo o que acharam de especial no jogo)
