Half-Life 2 Pre-Loading Phase 4
« on: September 28, 2004, 01:35:57 PM »
The fourth phase of the Half-Life 2 preload begins to Steam account holders today.

This will allow users to download the majority of Counter-Strike: Source in encrypted form. No purchase is required to pre-load Half-Life 2, but is required to activate the game. The moment the game is made available, those who have pre-loaded and purchased the game via Steam will be ready to start playing.

Isnt this going to make piracy easier to do?
Currently those evil anti-western extremists  rip off games via P2P networks.
This allows the alqeada-linked criminals to bypass this and directly download the product.
 The nasty cyber terrorists then only need to crack the software to actvate it, and sadams your uncle, youve got a full fledged halflife 2 install, building funds tward you next anthrax letter campaign.
