You just based your anti video game piracy argument on music piracy facts. Do you understand the phenomena behind streaming services like youtube or spotify, and behind digital purchasing platforms for music? The music industry has seen a huge shift in the way it monetizes its products, making your comparison shoddy at best. Read this: https://ids.uni.edu/loudsoundlogic/how-do-artists-make-money-on-spotify-soundcloud/ As everyone here knows, games are largely monetized through hard sales - something which is absolutely NOT true when it comes to music. I can't even begin to describe what a fallacious argument that was. If these companies have so many hard facts and statistics about how piracy adversely affects sales (and how heavy DRM helps alleviate the lost sales) then why aren't they sharing them with everyone? Why don't they prove once and for all what a big bad thing piracy is, so that companies like CDPR can take note and implement DRM as well? You're actually assuming that the upper management in these companies is competent, which is a very gullible thing to believe. See Apple as an example of piss poor upper management. If you think Apple is successful in 2018 because of the great decisions they've made in the past years you're very gullible. Apple is successful because it has a loyal fanbase that tends to gouge up any crap they throw out. EA on the other hand has a lot of titles which people love. You see, it's not so different, people buy the games out of loyalty and love with regards to the title. If EA started out today, without the titles and with the same business practices they wouldn't last a year. Also, those studies you discredit are based on official sales figures, which have absolutely failed to find a notable causal link between DRM and higher sales. There's no way you can argue against that without hard counter-facts, which you failed to deliver. In conclusion, you have presented nothing of worth in terms of arguments. That 'truth' you're speaking about is your own skewed interpretation of piracy, resulted from what the media and big corporations have spoon fed you. It's your fault for believing them without actually informing yourself.
