Default PC Piracy vs Console whackjobs

So on the PC they claim they have the deal with piracy concerns... funny, I wonder if it's easier to just let the console whackjobs just knock off a whole truck and sell them??

I'd love to hear a developers thoughts on this lol.

It's a non issue for them because console games sell millions more than PC games. Activision will say 'blah, blah, it's not good' but MW3 will sell 20-30 million, so meh.

If the PC version sold 10 million, game developers wouldn't bat an eyelid at PC piracy but because the Xbox360 took a big chunk out of the PC gaming market(thank Microsoft for that), then that's not going to happen anyway.

Just saying... both are technically "stolen" copies.... devs can say PC Gamers pirate... but now we can say "oh yea, well at least we aren't robbing trucks to get the game!!"

LMAO.

No reason to close thread it was a joke, the story about the copies being stolen by armed robbers is real.

Yeah because console users will buy the stolen version, where PC users are honest.
