Has Gearbox mention some kind of anti cheat for their game? If not, that's not going to look good for the PC scene, if so, I may have to settle with the 360 version but I hope not..any idea if they mention it?

'Burleson also said that the game will support Steamworks, so there will be none of the Games for Windows shenanigans that made Aliens vs. Predator a more terrifying prospect than the beasts within.'

That's nice it's a Steamwork title but neither games such as Borderlands 2 or Duke Nukem Forever had VAC secure and they were Steamwork titles, that's the thing that i'm worried about.

Yup, explains the duping, edited saves and stats in that game.
Gotta love Photon Cannon.

There is versus mode where 4 or 6 team against 4 or 6 other team with mission objective, that can practically ruin this mode if this mode were to become decent or fun to play on and gets ruin by cheaters/hackers because their is no anti cheat to prevent from ruining everyone fun.

I did not know they had a versus mode. Only coop campaign and survival modes.
