As long as this doesn't affect normal users - I think this is a fantastic idea...

Full credit to Square on this one. They're effectively getting the pirate community to distribute a demo for them.

What you need to remember is that there's what people want to hear, there's what people want to believe, there's everything else, THEN there's the truth!

One assumes you're a pirate then. Don't worry, I'm sure team CVG has taken the trouble to forward your details and IP address to Square-Enix already.

Why not try buying the game in the future. Pikeys.
