    Story below. Source: http://www.computerandvideogames.com....php?id=159754


    id Software's CEO Todd Hollenshead has revealed that videogame piracy "has pushed id as being multiplatform."

    In a lecture on videogame piracy during last week's GDC, he explained that the Doom and Quake developer started to eye console platforms as a method to battle the financial loss piracy incurs.

    Enemy Territory: Quake Wars was given as an example of id's multiplatform direction. Originally in development for PC at the hands of Splash Damage and id Software, the multiplayer-focussed action game is now additionally heading to Xbox 360 and PS3.

    In related news, the topic of videogame piracy was brought up in during a panel discussion focussing on the future of PC gaming at GDC last week.

    In the discussion, Soren Johsnon - designer/lead programmer, Sid Meier's Civilization III & IV - said "game design on the PC is going to bend toward persistence" as in MMOGs. Massively multiplayer online games succeed because "You cannot pirate an MMO. Period", said Johsnon.

    Lolol.

    If I pirate some more, maybe they'll make a version of Doom for Atari 2600

    And here I thought game companies made versions of their games for as many platforms as possible to milk as much money out of the franchise as possible, shame on me.

    And maybe someone should tell all the people running private WoW/RO/LineageII/etc.-servers that THEY CAN'T PIRATE MMOGs.

    It's all an illusion!!!
