Yet they still cry that piracy is killing them.. how typical

Piracy is hurting everyone, not just EA.

If they were never going to buy it hurts no one. They still bring in millions upon millions each year. Piracy is a tiny issue. Nothing to lose sleep over.

@h311rais3r: That is honestly the most BS excuse ever. If they were never going to buy it, what gives them the damn right to beable to play it honestly? What if everyone decided they werent going to buy it?

I won't say that pirates deserve to play games like that, as they don't. However I agree with Hellraiser.

These guys never plan to purchase the game, and if you take away the pirate options they simply WONT PLAY THE GAME. Yes one or two out of every 100 might, but these companies over exaggerate everything and think they are losing "millions to billions of dollars." They are not. Its not lost profits, because the profits were never there. It's not like actual gamers randomly go "why buy it? I can steal it!"

Fact is

Music, film, tv, and games industries all cry about piracy, then post record profits each year.

They cry because they can't get every last dime from everyone. This is why people don't take them serious when they cry foul.

What makes matters worse is when bands that are trying to get popular give away their music commonly, or sell it dirt cheap, because the profits are not in the music sales. The profits are in concert tickets, merchandise, and things the bands do themselves.

the only people that cry about music sales are the distribution companies that take every penny they possibly can for doing nothing before handing the rest to the band.
