Well, that's an incredibly mis-leading statistic. The way it's written, it implies that 56% of people playing video games don't buy them, with the rest buying all of them.

Not the case, clearly. Regardless, I imagine this would be the same as freeloader game piraters who download games that they didn't buy--likely they wouldn't spend money on the games in the first place, so other than the "fairness" aspect of a gamer playing a game they didn't actually pay for, I still don't see in practicality that this affects revenue-generation for a game publisher.

Maybe if Beiber did dubstep I hope he doesn't ever do it.

Don't pretend like you don't know what he does and doesn't do...

Not surprising most games are crap, and they're overpriced for how bad they are. I personally use gamefly, I don't know where I'd be without it.
Well It Works...
