if your willing to torrent the beta now, what makes us think that your going to even consider buying the game? remember, posting here is just words
Why are your paragraphs spaced out in the middle? Im confused o.O
torrenting has many more applications than simply pirating, but because of the amount of individuals along with hype that link themselves to pirating via torrents, theyve come to be hand in hand.
And please, stop dealing absolutes on everyone. The way you word things its like if you dont pirate, you live in this justified world where everyone is proud when they look on you to see "anti-pirate" stamped on your forehead. While the opposite lives within this back alley community where pirating is supported and praised.
Ive read plenty of articles of the music industry and the gaming industry both stating that if the product was good enough, people would simply buy it instead of resorting to piracy. With games being 60 dollars a pop, it only helps justify those who do not wish to pay that much. I remember the days of when games were 30 bucks for 1st party titles on the playstation lol
So with that, I understand why people pirate, but I dont condone the action.

Search youtube for proof of that.
yeah, actually wasnt BLOPS the most pirated game of the year? specifically for the 360?
