Rip, I love 'ya, but that's weak.
I was kinda thinking the samething myself sat. On PC and console, we already get demo disc and previews. Instead of stealing it, you could just wait for a console game to become availible at a rental store like Blockbuster and give it a go. $3 to $5 for a rental is morally responsible than just ripping it off the web. At least Blockbuster pays the full price vs. you, that's one hell of a bargin to be honest Riptide.

If a game demo has you craving the full version, my guess is it has served it's purpose.

If just about any department store out there permanently closed their fitting rooms then you can bet your bottom dollar a LOT more people would buy one pair, try it out, and then either return it or buy more of the same.

But there's that little thing about being able to try it on first... Kinda important there..

LOL... this argument has been done before:

1. someone says playing pirated games is the same as stealing a car
2. someone else says its not
3. repeat.

the fact of the matter is because pirating occurs all over the world, there are different laws regarding it. some countries might compare it to stealing intellectual properties, some to a more physical object. in each case/country, the punishment, if there are any, is different as well, which are shaped by our perception of what category software piracy falls under. some of us believe there is nothing wrong with playing with pirated software, and some of us equate it to grand theft auto. i think until there is a more universal law for piracy this argument isnt going to go anywhere..... hows that for contribution?

I wonder if this was Half Life 2 you mods would be condoneing this? I think he is a idiot like some of the others said. I pre-orderd the damn game for me and my bro who was right to point out he is "dumbass" and some dont think he should be called names because he is only giving is opinion? Dude pirated a copy and then gave a review here I'am waiting and at the same time paying. Justice should be in the form of a bann well unless soem of the mods do a little pirateing themselfs.

Heh, Superfly, you should join the political thread discussions. This is nothing compared to those, and people make clearer arguments there. It's fun.

I wonder if he had praised the game, would there have been as much of a backlash against him?
