Quantum Break marks game piracy with a Jack Joyce eye patch

Quantum Break has just been released on the Xbox One console and Windows 10 PC this week, and the AAA title is one of the first games to leverage Xbox Live capabilities to allow gamers to start playing on one platform and continue their progression on the other. However, Reddit user disastorm discovered  (via GameSpot)  that if you play the game on Windows 10 without first signing into your Microsoft account, Quantum Break's hero Jack Joyce will get an eye patch, as you can see in the image below:

If the game thinks you're a pirate, Jack Joyce will get an eye patch.

Quantum Break developer Remedy acknowledged this funny form of piracy punishment on the official FAQ of the Windows 10 version of the game:

"DRM might've accidentally triggered. Make sure you've logged into your Microsoft account before starting the game."
