Who's selling Hacker Elite? IV takes legal action...

Postby Tom » Fri Jan 20, 2006 1:14 am

Hey guys,

We've got our lawyer putting together a cease and desist letter for all retailers of Uplink : Hacker Elite.

That basically means any website (other than the Introversion Website) that's selling Uplink. I'd be really grateful if anyone who knows of a website selling Uplink to note it down here, so we can chase them up. If you can, an email of the webmaster + a real world address would be ideal. I've already got the starting of a list, but I know that people have spotted it available elsewhere also.

Lets sort this, once and for all!

Thanks :-)

Tom.

Trygames - http://trygames.com/game/aff=trygames/v ... 85e5395482

Games2Download - http://www.games2download.com/free-stra ... uplink.htm
This one, and many others Ive found, seem to link to trymedia, which a lot of places have listed as the publisher. ( lhttp://www.download-free-games.com/sim ... uplink.htm for example) - https://fe.trymedia.com/magnus/bbyt.htm ... c=trygames

Amazon.com has it, although it only seems to be used copies being sold by people, not sure if that counts. - http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/ ... 43-7352125

Another few websites for you guys

http://www.terragame.com/uplink_hacker_elite.html
this is a bit odd as the Google hit for the site said, play uplink online, but we all know uplink is not online

http://games.ncbuy.com/downloads/title_11507.html
i don’t understand how they are doing that, but i hope this helps

http://games.canada.com/game/aff=t_03st/vid=9cef11ac939982d92c230b85e5395482
again seems a bit iffy to me, check it out and see what you think

http://www.strategyfirst.com/en/games/Uplink/store/
hope this one helps as well, they aren’t offering a boxed copy, just a download for it

I have also noticed that a lot of the game sites point to trymedia. but i think they are selling boxed copies of the game, not sure. Well good luck IV, hope you guys finally get the big pay day you deserve

Well seeing as how they said Hacker Elite, not the Trust is a Weakness version, no.

I haven't seen any lately, just the ones where people are selling used copies.
I wasn't here.

"TRUST IS A WEAKNESS" is used in the SF version too. Atleast, the one I have :P

Erm, isn't Trust is a Weakness simply the motto of the game, not a separate version? =]
