3DM Claim to Have Cracked Denuvo

Video games are a tricky thing, with prices ranging from your quick sale buy to a full-blown new release (going upwards of £40 or even £50 now), you end up spending a lot of money to get the latest in entertainment. One way to get games cheap is to use a “cracked” version of them, this is when a game is altered so that people can play it without being caught by the DRM (digital right management), a system to make it so that only those who have purchased it (usually by linking the purchase to an account on a service) can play the game. Recently 3DM stated they would halt cracking in order to view how localization affects video game sales. That may not be the whole story as more news has been revealed.
This latest announcement relates to the news that some groups were finding Denuvo a little too hard to crack. Some of the latest games, including Tomb Raider, Just Cause 3 and FIFA 16 use Denuvo, but 3DM have now come forward and stated that they are on the “verge of cracking the latest Denuvo”. The announcement was made by Bird Sister the leader of 3DM via TorrentFreak and was explained that the statement was made to prove that the rumours they had “abandoned cracking due to technical problems” was nothing more than just rumours.
Some use cracked software to test out a game before playing it, some use it to wait until they can buy the game, some just don’t like paying £40+ when they don’t even know if the game is worth the money. Will you admit to using cracked software? Do you like buying it once you are certain it is worth the investment?
