Posted on June 24, 2007, Andrew Vista-Only Game Cracked?
If it’s true, the idea of a Vista-exclusive game getting cracked makes me giddy.
According to TheInquirer.net, hacker group Razor1911 broke down what needs to be done in order to play Shadowrun in Windows XP – no DirectX10 required. And apparently all that the crack requires is that you overwrite a few files in the installation folder with the ones provided by Razor.
Is this too good to be true, or is this a breakthrough for all us gamers out there who don’t want to give Microsoft more money?
I’m not a huge fan of breaking laws and infringing on people’s copyrights. But man oh man, the lines do blur when it comes to Microsoft.
