GameCube cracked

Or should that be .. crackered?

Nintendo's decision to distribute GameCube software on non-standard miniature DVDs was at least partly taken as an effort to stop piracy, but today we were shocked to learn that a group calling themselves Team BMM have circumvented this copy protection using a somewhat .. bizarre method. To back up their extreme claims, the hackers have released a 12Mb movie showing them copying Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 and playing the cracked copy in their GameCube. The grainy home video ends abruptly though as an argument breaks out between the ski-masked members of the warez team, leading to a scuffle. Proof at last of ELSPA's contention that videogame piracy supports more violent forms of crime? Watch the video and judge for yourselves.
