I was reading "Freax: The History of the Demoscene" and there was anecdote about how Psygnosis would intentionally leak some of their games before the official release. The leak would be buggy and/or incomplete.

Crackers would crack the game and get distributed. Then Psygnosis would release the correct version. Because there was some unwritten rule that crackers dont re-crack a game, it encouraged people to go out and buy the actual game.

Im just wondering how much truth there was to that anecdote. @Galahad, can you provide any insight?

Thanks!
