Eidos Catch Out Batman: Arkham Asylum PC Pirates

Nice one Eidos. A deliberate glitch in the PC version of Batman: Arkham Asylum has found users who downloaded the game illegally accidentally revealing themselves. A user by the name of Cheshirec_the_cat posted a thread on September 4th in the official Eidos forums for Batman: Arkham Asylum stating:
"I've got a problem when it's time to use Batman's glide in the game. When I hold , like it's said to jump from one platform to another, Batman tries to open his wings again and again instead of gliding. So he fels down in a poisoning gas. If somebody could tell me, what should I do there."
However, the PC version of the game isn't released until the 15th and Eidos admin staffer 'Keir' replied:
"The problem you have encountered is a hook in the copy protection, to catch out people who try and download cracked versions of the game for free."

"It's not a bug in the game's code, it's a bug in your moral code."
