I use quality plus price.
I hate getting burned on a hyped title that I cannot stand.
Its like throwing money in the trash.
Reviews seem to mean less than they did in the past.
The reviewer always seems to be someone who just loves the particular genre.
I don't have a single pirated game that I play on a regular basis that I didn't pay for.
I do have lots of pirated games that I never play...
all doomed to pass into digital oblivion on a regular basis.
I pirate for one of four reasons:
1. There is no accesible demo for the game (or at least I am unaware of it) and I would like to try it before purchasing it. I do purchase it if I like it.
2. The game disc/cartridge is broken or lost. I do not have the excess cash to replace it.
3. I owned a copy of the game before on another system and the game was not improved adequately when ported to a more current system. No sense in paying repeatedly for the same thing.
4. In the case of the PSP, running it off a memory card loads faster and uses less battery life than using the original UMD.
i have 43 words for you
Do you want cos a pirate is free
You are a pirate
Yar Harr, Fiddle dee dee,
Being a pirate is alright to be
Do what you want cos a pirate is free
You are a pirate.
I only pirate certain things. Like, if I can't find the game anywhere, I download it.
If the game is on an old system, i will download it if I want it.
And, since there aren't very many demos for ds, I download the rom, try it, and if I like it, I buy it. Flash carts are to much of a chance of will it work or not, so I use it for homebrew and gba games I can't find anywhere. So, testing ds games is like a demo to me.
i pirate everything i can find useful or fun..
movies, games, music and apps.
just because i don't want to pay for it, the movies is so outdated when they come to sweden that the DvDrip has been out for weeks, and that's when i see the commercials, add a month and it'll come to my town..
but wait, that's when the sequel is out.
the games does come faster to sweden than movies, but i don't want to pay for it..
i got more reasons, but not enough for You..
(cracked steam is fun cus steam have most of the major games to download.. i got a very long "my games" list)
so what do developers want to hear from me *woops* i mean them
my main reason was pointed on the first post. now that I am of age I can purchase away which brings forth another problem.....crappy sales people who annoy you to the brink of insanity.
people will pirate anything, their is no escaping it. the thing is how easily accessible the product is and how easy it is have it put to use. anyways that is the way I see it.
