PostSubject: Piracy   Wed Jul 15, 2009 7:17 am

Not talking about the guys that do yarrrr.

Talking about Online Piracy.

Are you For or Against?

I Personally use Piracy, to test games that i'm suspect about the quality, and use it, because you can't rent PC games, but i usually pay for the safe spots like the Orange Box, Civilization, Warcraft. But for games like Godfather, i pirated, and happy i did, because it took me 1 week to complete, and the story was dull. Oh, and when i don't feel like getting raped by the Old games pricetag... (20$ for Call of Duty 1... WTF)

Your toughts?

Allright for demoing, but you know it's not used for that by most. So no, I'm against. What I'm FOR is allowing people to get a demo for your game for free a LOT easier.

I dont know, I mean it is killing the PC exclusives, now the days we almost only got third person games. But on the other hand, iys fucking free! Problem is I have not yet figured out to do it, mainly to lazy, oh well. I got bittorrent around my pc somewhere, could give it a try.. but nah, my pc sucks anyways.

So yeah.. :/

Had it not been for piracy I wouldn't have been able to get several titles I like very much.

Piracy manifested for a reason; people know they're getting ripped off.

And though i don't usually engage in piracy, i have no principled aversion to this attempt at evening the scales.

Rather than try to pretend my views on piracy aren't based on arguments I've heard, I'll link you to one of the best piracy articles ALL people should read.

I am against. I have over 9000gb of the shit but it's still illigal and it's illigal for a reason.
however it's bleeding unstoppable, legislating against bittorrent clients would cut human rights. it's already obvius that event the smartest developers can't beat millions of young nerds on the internet so protection is out. however film and music producers should learn to go along with the shit and find ways to make money off it, they are fucking greedy bastards I'm sure they'll find a way. Also Over 9000% of the piracy is stuff no one would ever buy anyway so proders aren't loosing as much as you would think.

I'm against it, but still trying to stop it is fucking dumb, like trying to stop the chinese from doing something using the population of the vatican.

Oh, fuck the music companies. most peopel consider piracy to be about the games, not music. Music is even more overpriced most of the time than games, and that's saying something.

If everything was downloaded for free they wouldnt even make fucking games or music since they dont get money for it.

First, tax is 15% total.

Second, yes, games and music being downloaded will be the deathstroke of capitalism. Yeah, right.

if all radio was free no-one would make any.
if all newspapers were free no-one would make them.
if TV was free no-one would make any.

1 has happend, 2 has happend in many cuntries, 3 is on the way.

games are BOOMING sales are up 10-15% everyear even though piracy is at it's most ever, it isn't affecting sales.

Piracy is just as much piracy as the video record, the tape recorder, the gramophone and cable.

Radio is free, yes, but what do we get?
COMMERCIALS, same for newspapers, we have free newspapers here, almost half are advertisements.

1. You know those knobs in your car? The one that says "radio"? And "Seek"? "Vulome"? "Am/FM"? Funding issue? Advertisements.

2. Then what the hell am I paying that kid to deliver? Funding issue? Advertisements.

3. You know they have commercial CHANNELS, right?

ever fucking heard of freeware? i fucking want to start my own radio channel for free without commercials, and i know much channels without that on the interwebs, for newspaper it can't be done for free, exept for internet newspapers, and everyone wants to write in a newspaper for free, its so cool.
for video games its the same, there are 1000 of games out there that are freeware, and most of those games are better then the commercial ones.

Yeah, but the percentage of suck is about equal, it's just that you pay more attention to what you get when you have to buy it.

Buying leasure suit larry (360 and PS3) is pretty much equal to paying for getting punched in the nuts.
