Half Life 2 Illegal Copy Information
I don’t plan on playing this game at all… but thought I would like to share this piece of news I found..
Grabbed this from Half Life 2 Files
Hey HL2 Gamers!
Recently, one of the HL2Files.com members here, alerted me of a pirated warez version of Half-Life 2, apparently released via the Bittorent network. I immediately, forwarded this to Gabe Newell of VALVe Software. [The great man, we should all be thanking for Half-Life 2 ].
A couple of hours later, Gabe replied with the following:
We’re running a bit of an experiment. We’re keeping track of the accounts that do this and will be shutting them off.
So, as you can see, VALVe Software have released a test “warez” version aimed at catching people out. These people will have their accounts deleted and will be banned from Steam.
Therefore, I strongly suggest that you DO NOT participate in these illegal activities as it would only lead to your own harm.
VALVe Software spent over $40 Million to develop Half-Life 2. Show them you appreciate their work. Buy the game!
As the saying goes: BURN YOU WAREZ MONKEYS!
Spread the word!
