I agree. Plants vs Zombie is what? 10 usd just go look how many torrents are there, i bet probably close to 1 million ppl downloaded it from torrent sites.
People like to get stuff for free, that's how it is and will always be. Even better argument is people pirating Iphone game that cost 1usd, seriously.

almost any game here cost 50euro on steam. plants vs zombies is 10euro.

average salary here is 800euro(brutto), rent for 2room apartment is ~400euro. i hope u can get the picture. and thats capital city. salary is a LOT worse in villages.
im not trying to justify piracy, just saying dont judge whole world based on US prices and salary.
