Moral of the story?

Don't pirate video games.

Good moral.

HDgamer3078d ago

Moral of the story is that you have to know what you're talking about first and don't use torrents.

bnaked3078d ago

lol, the industry strikes back haha

TheRedTerror3078d ago

they chose "explicit Japanese Hentai" games? XD, they deserved what they got. There's plenty of free porn out there people...you think these pirates would do a little research into what they put on their comps before actually downloading it.

IdleLeeSiuLung3078d ago

No, because is is free and free is always good right!!!

LOL....

Lol! Harsh but hilarious.

Captain Tuttle3078d ago

yeah, pretty funny actually.

ReBurn3078d ago (Edited 3078d ago )

Heh, blackmailing pirates! And what can they really do about it? Call the cops and say that they were illegally downloading software and now some guy is blackmailing them? It's very funny and actually kind of fitting!

I wish the URL was available so that I could go and laugh.

Actually yes, as piracy is usually a lot smaller crime than creating viruses and stealing personal info or publishing private information.
Not to mention blackmail.

Depends a bit on the laws of the country tough. Dunno if your allowed to shoot a thief in US. But then again this is probably not done by any of the videogame developers (if it were, they would get their *ss sued so hard that the pirate would never have to pirate another game in their life)

Gotta admit that I find it very disturbing how people here are blindly trying to help all these big international companies while agreeing to pretty much everything they do. Personally I don't really mind if some people pirate their games, even if I pay for all my games.

Piracy is not my problem (many consumers consider it as "option" rather than problem), I buy games so I can enjoy them, its only a bonus that I support the developers at the same time.
For many it seems like a life's work to march for free for the companies believing all the pr bull*hit they tell them about how all hacking and piracy is bad.
