... Especially if we remember the weapon boxes in Borderlands. You opened chests for legendary weapons and they were giving away the keys online all the time. They didn't sell them for a few bucks like they would nowadays.

It's a blatant PR lie that it doesn't affect their profits! Of course it does! Anyone believing it wouldn't is crazy!
