Shamed on the Web 网上受稀落
The illegal copying and distribution of software, or piracy, costs the video game industry billions of dollars each year, and even threatens the future of game production.
However, one British-based video game publisher, Eidos, has hit back at the pirates in a novel way by not only spoiling their game-playing, but also shaming them on the internet.
Pirates who are playing illegal copies of Batman: Arkham Asylum find that crucial control functions in the game have been disabled, rendering the game unplayable.
Players using a ‘cracked’ version of the game discover that the glide function in the game does not work, causing the Batman character to fall to his death.
