I don't know about PS3 piracy. You are probably right about that. However XBOX/PS2 unfortunately don't have bluerays.
Also modded XBOXs/PS2 usually have their connection abilities removed to prevent firmware upgrades.

PC piracy is probably more prevalent in the US. However 90% of the world it's vice versa.
OH nice to meet you patty!
Who ignored the thread? I read the entire thread, do you start a fight everywhere you go?
Who plays on an xbox/ps2? who cares about piracy on them? I doubt microsoft or sony make any money on their last gen consoles software sales. Isnt half a game, the multiplayer. On PC you can play pirate games and still play on-line with games you legally own, on consoles you cannot.

If you look at console sales the middle east and China are a very very small portion of the the overall sales figures. It should be fairly easy to say that console piracy isnt anywhere near as frequent in Europe, Japan, or NA as PC piracy and there are considerably more console consumers than PC gaming consumers.
Have you ever heard of smuggling?

Their last PC game was a mess. GTA 4 is not only a horrible port performance and DRM wise, it's also a boring game overall. Most missions consist of shooting some drug dealers and grinding cash which has 0 uses since you can't buy real estate anymore.

The storyline wasn't interesting, the characters were flat, only the funny TV and radio shows managed to remind me of the older games in the series.

Frankly after Rockstar nailed it with GTA 3 and Vice City they stopped inovating. Their games follow the same formula.

Man i live here!
You know why console sales are low? Coz first there are no official stores that sell them.
Second you can buy em in any electronic store and trust me those outlets are not official in anyway so of course the numbers will be low.
Piracy is REALLY high in asia and orient if you think people do not own pcs or consoles here , you are very wrong sir!

It all comes down to money.

PC gaming piracy hurts more because there are less PC gamers than console gamers. How many families own a PC with gaming-grade hardware in the US? 10 million? 20 million? Now how many families own a Xbox/PS3? 50 million? 75 million? I am making these numbers up but you get my point. Even if piracy is rampant on both platforms, the shear numbers of the console market make it more lucrative for publishers. That's all there really is to it.

I can't speak for other countries, but the idea is still the same. If consoles bring in more money, then more publishers will ignore the PC and focus just on consoles. Which is exactly what they are doing.

The problem is not that they are targeting the consoles. The problem is, every time us PC gamers voice our opinion, we're told by both devs and console gamers to shut the **** up because we're nothing but ****** pirates.

Stop blaming us for "killing" PC gaming when it's in fact the developers greed that's doing it.

Don't BS me with that piracy crap. To actually make piracy work on Xbox's you have to gut your Xbox and JTAG it. Not only can you harm your Xbox, but Microsoft can actually find out if there any anu unauthorized hardware specs on your Xbox. So you can get banned, or maybe even fined.

PC piracy, all you need is a torrent downloader, and a ISO Disc Mounter and you are set......

Though I do think Rockstar should focus on the PC. I want someone like IGN or G4 (though they too are console fanboys so the odds of this are quite slim..) to ask them why these titles aren't available for the PC.....

well it takes few hours to download a pc game from a torrent and its just within two dats of its release...nd also u can play online
where as on consoles u have to download it,burn it,nd be sure if its working or not and worst part u can't play online with modded consoles anymore...since both MS and Sony has taken serious measures against hackers....now who plays a game in console without having online capabilities..thats the beating heart of a console nd if someone does dats pathetic

Do you guys even read the posts before?
It must convenient for you to just ignore everyone who doesn't agree with you.

1)It's easy to buy an already modded console
2)You won't be playing online so no getting busted (@facepalm. you do realize PCs are used in multiplayer also?)
3)Microsoft has almost no power to fine people in areas where console piracy does exist.
4)You don't have to download anything. A game dvd is obtained between $1-$3 from a shop down the street.
