Wait a minute! You're saying that they should have not sued this guys, who have been profiting from piracy of their games? These japanese companies are fighting for the intellectually properties, and that's bad in you're book... Good logic there, dude.

Look, I know you just hate Nintendo, I get it (pretty much everyone here does). But it's not only Nintendo who is suing here. What about the other companies? Konami? Capcom? Square Enix (yes, the people that made your beloved Final Fantasy XIII, judging by your pic) is also on the group, so I guess you're okay with them losing money, eh?

In the long run, piracy hurts the industry. If you're okay with piracy, that's your deal. But at least admit that these game companies are not the villains here. They are protecting their property, trough legal means, and they won. And that's it.

EDIT: Thanks for the sentiment and the bubble, exfatal. I also tend to avoid Mika, but sometimes she really grinds my gears.

This is how to fight piracy: attack the people enabling piracy, not the legitimate consumers.

Rest of the world: take note.
