    Don't worry its easy to bypass the code rockstar added.

    Buying the game might help. Give it a try it'll avoid you getting banned.

    It is clear a huge amount of effort went into making this game. Downloading it is an insult to all of the people involved and who ever does it, deserves to get banned.

    i really recommend you buy the game, it has got enough gametime and fun to justify pay £40/$40 for it, so i really recommend you go out there and buy an origional, they spent alot of time making the game the least you could do is show your appreciaton to rockstar for making an outstanding game!

    I pirated this game, and bought it ... I play the pirate version ... and I leave in original on the shelf ...

    I have pirated games for 25 years now, and I will always buy some games on originals ... and saying that a game is worth is price tag is not preaching, it is an attempt to support the industry which we all claim to love ...

    im not preaching, i have a modified console aswell, but for certain games they deserve respect and those big games should be bought! $60 is a tough call for a game in the states, guess u made ur mind up

    $60 = £30

    GTA4 is £40 in the UK ... US games are cheaper than games in almost every other country in the world ...

    I just checked online on the cheapest place to buy games in sweden:
    Gta IV is £48 or $96.... and that's NORMAL for any game which is relatively new here.
    and this is excluding shipping, $5 or £2.50 ... It's clear to see why so many in sweden are importing american games... [​IMG]


    Anyway, I think it could be very possible to get banned, though I don't know.
    Microsoft can see if you pirate windows, so why wouldn't they be able to see if you pirated gta? (when you play online)

    Dude, just to some research ... I am not getting into another one of those lengthy explanations about why we are okay to play on Live, right now, with modded 360s ...

    I don't mean a modded 360, i meant a pirated version of gta 4... that rockstar has put some sort of protection in... and I just said that I _think_ it would be possible, never said anything else. and I also gave a relevant reason...

    They could, but they wont ... just because something is doable, does not mean it will get done ...

    I'm all for pirating games, especially if you cant afford to play something then you shouldn't be denied it. But just so the record is straight, this game IS worth $60.

    You'r so right, Rockstar Paid like 100 Million Dollar to make this game and you are just getting it for only $60!(That's how I see it, you paying only $60 for a game worth $100.000.000)
