I can't condone piracy and find it pretty low, especially those people who rely on it hand over fist for all their entertainment needs. I have a few movies, I'll admit, but only to replace broken copies of movies I had previously owned. I still love physical collections :)

Still, I can't help grinning when a mere website sticks it to the man so hard.

You are funny. "I can't condone piracy and find it pretty low" But yet you say you have pirated movies. Sure I understand you just restored the ones you bought and don't work, but piracy is still piracy and in the eyes of the Entertainment Industries lawyers, you are guilty as the rest of us.

Go to hell pirates

You (indirectly) gave the G-Man a reason to fuck us over.

Not to mention you are killing all of the studios, good or bad. (Witcher 2 anyone?)

In 1984, vinyl records cost about 6 bucks. CD's came out and they cost about 15 bucks plus tax, and the classical stuff like Deustche Grammaphone was 18 - 19 bucks. Everyone was outraged. The "RECORD COMPANIES' said, oh the price will come down, its a new technology. The prices NEVER came down. They are filthy, greedy pigs, and I will steal from them EVERY CHANCE I GET! And if you don't like it you can kiss my A$$. I have exactly 60,519 tracks in my music collection, and I didn't pay a DIME for any of it.

Have a nice day, suckers.

What are you talking about? Witcher 2 sold over a million units despite piracy. They even released a version without any DRM. They're doing well.

I am saying that people always say that DRM is a reason to pirate.
Witcher 2 only had casual copy DRM, and it still had multi million pirate numbers.

So what you're saying is: when they relaxed the DRM restrictions, more people purchased the game. So is it piracy or inconvenient DRM that was hurting sales?

WTF? Can you read?

"I am saying that people always say that DRM is a reason to pirate.

The Corrupted One: "I am saying that people always say that DRM is a reason to pirate. Witcher 2 ONLY HAD CASUAL COPY DRM, and STILL HAD MULTI-MILLION PIRATE NUMBERS."

The question is: was it pirated because DRM has no effect on piracy OR did it sell well because people don't want overly restrictive DRM? I suspect that if the former were the case then the sales numbers would have been far less.

You do notice that many people that pirate the game would have never bought it in the first place. So it's not like the studio is actually losing out on any sort of real money.

Hell, if I really want to play a game, I'm going to buy it. The game will be more stable, the online will work without having to jump through tons of hoops, and it will be easier to get back in the future. However, if the game is pretty average and I'm only planning to play it as a time filler, I'm probably going to try and download it somewhere. I may only play it once or twice or play it through once, but thing is constant: I would have never bought the game anyways, so why does it matter?

That's amazing logic:
"I wouldn't ever buy my games, so I pirate all of them because I wouldn't buy them anyways".

That's amazing logic you have there.

"Who knows? Maybe the Library of Congress will fit on a USB drive sometime soon."

I have to admit, sometimes when I study in the University's library and get bored, I stare at the shelves and try to calculate in my mind how much it would cost to store digital copies of the books on that shelf, based on the number of books, type, approximate size on disk and so on... :p
