[Destructoid] Why developers HATE PC gamers. - Page 18

post #171 of 208
LOL @ OP - as if piracy isn't worse on consoles? pfft. Atleast on consoles, you can play the pirated games online. Honestly though, good games are bought, sad games are pirated - simple as that.

Ofcourse, I wouldn't know anything about that.

On topic, really? Are we still debating piracy on the PC being more prominent. Are we STILL even arguing about piracy? Oh jeeze, wasn't that started pages ago?

I'm confused...

Are people asserting that Piracy -> Less Profit -> Less Development -> Games Suck

Or

Less Development -> Games Suck -> Piracy -> Less Profit?

I don't get it...

Last time I checked, bad games don't generate that much revenue, pirated or not, PC or consoles...

Last time I checked, piracy hasn't put any musicians in retirement early...

Last time I checked, piracy hasn't closed down studios from making movies...

I think the porting of games to consoles only has to do the sheer number of customers and audiences rather than studios afraid of piracy. It's a $20+ Billion industry... I am sure as long as there is demand, no matter how bad the piracy gets, there will always be a market for them...

JMHO...

^This.
Why do people think Blizzard is raking in billions on WoW?
It ain't because it requires a hefty rig.
Consoles are cheap and idiot proof. People are generally scared of stuff more technical that a TV remote. And publishers don't do anybody any favors by listing sys reqs in type smaller than a lawyers sense of decency.
Console games outsell PC games because you never have to upgrade them, (barring the N64 RAM module), and because you can RENT and RESELL them after you are done with them.

There's an entity in existence which was created to deal with illegal activities. It is not the producer of whatever it is getting stolen.

That's why you ignore piracy. The FBI will handle it. It's not like the developers can do anything about it.

We're not assuming it goes away either. What we're doing is catering for the only people we need to cater for and not doing the FBI's job for them.
most people would not welcome federal law enforcement into this problem especially if those people are part of it. lol 5 years of imprisonment and $250,000 fine. ever see those fbi warnings on those movies?

Pirating of video games has been going on since there has been video games. All the publishers know this.

Bad games, crappy PC ports of console made games are why PC games don't sell has well.

Good games, sell well.

Piracy is just an excuse, like terrorism.

Where're the zealots to refute these claims? Last time I said this I even backed my claims up with proof and the brainwashed just couldn't accept it.

Piracy leads to profit, it's been proven many, many times. Anything to the contrary is a lie, nothing more, nothing less. Now I am well aware those who find it too hard to think for themselves are unable to grasp even proof when it's put before them, but that doesn't change the fact (yes, it's fact) that the only reason why developers don't sell and resort to the piracy propaganda is because they're too lazy to release finished products.

I refuse to pay to beta test games or software which are basically abandoned even prior to release.

says who? many sources claim that the numbers in this thing aren't very reliable and everyone i know usually do not pay for digital entertainment (games, music, movies) unless it was an xbox or ps3 game. heck, i know several devout christians who admit to this too. so i guess that means that you really can't say that most people who illegally obtain media buy it in the end?
Says the person with a high end machine. You got that for epeen or to use it? If it was to use it you're being pretty clever, because if your wish comes true the only thing left will be to Fold or run Boinc.

If you don't use your machine for any form of video or audio editing I can give you my address, so you can mail me your things? I wouldn't mind a fourth machine like yours just for Boinc, especially as you don't play games on your PC.

Christians pirating? You should point out the parts in the bible where it says thou shalt not steal, then sit back and laugh.
