Quote from the Halo 2 Privacy Statment regarding activation...
"What this feature does
Activation is aimed at reducing product counterfeiting so that Microsoft
customers can receive the product quality that they expect. Once your
product is activated, a specific product key becomes associated with the
computer (the hardware) on which it is installed. After association is
completed, use of that product key may be prevented on other computers."
So if I activate my Halo 2 on this PC then later I decide to upgrade my
video card, then I can never play this game again? I am SO glad I got System
Shock 2 working, I'm returning this game before I get stuck with it.
Nice try Microsoft. It's bad enough we have to give you an extra $50/yr to
play online, but now we can't upgrade our systems without jumping through
hoops, or worse, we just can't upgrade period? Now on an XBox 360 I can
understand, but ahhh, i'm loosing it.
Oh, check this out...
