I don't know if this has been posted anywhere else, but after looking at the PC version's feature list on the 2k Sports website, I noticed this:

Quote:
* Does not support any online functionality, including but not limited to online games, 2K Share, ReelMaker or Living Rosters

** Internet access required to install and authenticate game
Maybe I'm interpreting this wrong, but it seems that the PC version has almost no online capability.

The PC version doesn't have online play. It was confirmed at the 2k forums.

Doesn't matter to me because I'll take better graphics and ease of screenshot taking/movie taking over online play with a bunch of sore loser kids any day.

Oh. I guess I've been out of the loop for awhile. Travel is tough on message board watching

I just want a demo of the PC version Bad enough the game is still 2 weeks away, but there's been NO info about this version aside from what's been posted here. No screens, no movies, no demo.

Is it possible to have modded online play through custom servers?

You need a valid Steam account to validate the game.
 
# 13 madmax17 @ 10/07/08 01:48 PM
Steam account is free, if you only need to validate when you install the game then I am 100% for it, if it has that invasive protection crap like securom I ain't buying.

You could use a crack once it's out also.

Since it has no online play I assume the amount of people who pirate it will be much higher than if it wasn't.

This is the PC thread, and it's well past the date the demo for the consoles came out. I think I know they're out on those already.

I hope they release some info, screenshots or something more PC related.

Online play is not a big deal for me, this is what I'll be running my dynasty on if it's moddable.

Rumor has it that Europe gets it on the 10th. If that's the case I'm downloading it until it's release in the US.
