Rebellion has been pretty busy lately haven’t they? Apparently they had Steam remove over 7,000 copies of Sniper Elite 3 that were “stolen”. My question is how could that many copies of their game be stolen by over 50 different sites without raising some sort of red flag?
Everyone that had their game removed from Steam are upset and rightfully so. Honestly, I don’t believe that over 50 sites were selling illegal copies of Sniper Elite 3. I could believe 3, maybe 4, but 50. Many fans, including myself, have purchased many games from other sites that sell games for a really cheap price. Steam is known to be really expensive with their games and if I can find a game cheaper than what Steam if offering, which is often, than I’ll go for it.
I didn’t purchase Sniper Elite 3 for the PC, thankfully, but many people did and I think it’s wrong for Rebellion to say someone stole that many keys and take them all back because those customers decided to buy the game for a cheaper price. In the end this all comes down to money. Rebellion wants maximum profit for their game, which is understandable, but the way they’re doing it is wrong.
Are you trying to tell me that every site on that list had stolen copies of Sniper Elite 3 and no one knew about it? How can you validate a stolen game on Steam without someone noticing it? Steam had to be told that the copies were stolen before they removed them. I don’t know about you, but I think Steam has better security than that.
Some people have purchased hundreds of games from other sites because the prices are cheaper without a single issue. As I mentioned already I could believe if one or two sites had stolen that many copies, but 50 just seems a bit suspicious to me.
I have one thing to say to everyone that had their game taken away and their hard earned money wasted. Just pirate the game and give the devs the middle finger.
