BitTorrent's game downloads: A big hoax
BitTorrent.com says it offers free game downloads. It lies.
Second, although games are listed in the B.E.N. catalog as free, they are nothing of the sort. You get a free preview period to try the game. If you want to play it past that period, you have to pay up. Gangland, for example, is free only for 60 minutes. After that, access to the game costs $14.99. And you pay through a separate payment engine, not your BitTorrent account.
What's the point of using BitTorrent for games? I can't see one. Bad form, BitTorrent.
I apologize for not noticing this in our earlier review.
