for those that are all tide up in a knot over the devs loosing money know this, most of what you pay for a game does not go to the developers. it goes to the publisher, adverts, E3, other licensing and all sorts of stuff. the devs will get maybe $5-$10 of what you spend. so frankly they couldn't care less. so here's my view on the subject, f*uck 'em, if the "artests" (aka. the ones who actualy put forth the work and effort into making the game) aren't getting my money than I'm not going to pay a damn cent for it, I'd rather go and hand over the $50 to the programmer, than watch the publishers drive the devs up the ass with out even bothering to lube it up first. wait untill I become a programmer I'm going to slap my balls across these publishers faces and give them a tea-bagging they will never forget. and for those saying "well it's illegal", ....so? sence when has the law been moraly correct? I hate people that act like the law is so damn sacred and that if you break it you are the devil. the RIAA & MPAA are tyrants, it's all about money. so they'll pass as many laws as they can to get it. every pice of software I have made and will make will always cary a GNU license, so they can't tuch it, and if they try I'll be suing my fist of thunder up there ass.
