The only reason people aren't pirating the beta is because it's unfinished, wait until the full game is almost out and it hits the web it's going to be downloaded like crazy.

Way I see it, if you can’t afford something you can’t have it, simple. Just because you’re young an can't afford said game it doesn't make it ok to Pirate because it’s easy to do.

If your young and can only get 2 or 3 games per year that’s fine. When December comes round and Steam goes mental pick up the others you couldn’t afford at $6 a pop. That way the developer who made the best game (in your opinion) gets full price at the time of release and the ones that didn’t qualify still get some money later down the line.

My opinion with visuals.

The PC gaming scale is:
I--------------------------------------------------------------I

Piracy's effect on PC gaming:
I--I

Overblown Budgets on garbage games:
I---------------I

Actual Cost of making the game (quality).
I------------------I
*I---------I
*for activision

Marketing:
I--------I
*I------------------------I
*for activision

Profits(minus Piracy):
I---------I

You can clearly see here Activision uses the entire scale and all factors.
I---------II------------------------II---------II---------------II--I

Crytek being a somewhat normal Developer is in this range.
I---------II------------------II--------II--I


*A lot of actual guess work went into making this visual presentation. Please use information gathered here at your own risk.

Activision is the SI base unit for horrible publisher. I'm fairy sure Kotick's head will someday be put in a jar and displayed at the International Bureau of Weights and Measures right next to the meter.

Your loss. It, like portal, is one of my favorite games even though they are very short they are both unique and tons of fun.

Reading some of these comments, I am glad to see that we are again Piracy. Crysis 2 is one game that I would say worth the money, not ****ty MW_2, so the company will always have my support. Now, for all the ppl who are saying Piracy is killing the PC game market needs to stop living in a BOX, because that is not the case do your research before u follow the massive. Check Steam and so on an u will realize PC gaming is still alive and well. And now for Piracy general everybody as a choice, and it is a free world, so don't hate, they will see the light one day!!!!

I don't think the beta will change much at all really.

Pirates will still pirate the full version when it comes out anyway. And buyers will buy the full version when it comes out. I doubt it will have much of an impact.

The fact that it's (Piracy) "killing off our hobby" isn't what troubles me.

What gets to me is that torrent sites are capitalizing on the popularity of piracy and the content they direct people to. And yet people still lap up the "OH PIRACY IS COOL INIT LUL" propaganda they spew.

It's like a friend is lying to you, wouldn't you just despise them for it? Even worse is that they're earning boatloads of cash from stabbing you in the back.

It's like how youtube hosts everything and makes money off of other peoples work with no permission.

Just thought I would say some piracy might be lessened by having a good demo for every game (including one for multiplayer to judge the whole experience) or a trial as some games do. I hate buying games without experiencing them first as I have no idea if I will like them.
