Devil May Cry 4 Cries Piracy

GamesIndustry.biz has the latest complaint that piracy has a major impact on PC game sales, quoting Capcom's Christian Svensson as saying the PC edition of Devil May Cry 4 is "getting pirated to hell and back." This comment is somehow connected to his comments about the the supernatural action sequel not being distributed digitally, though how the two points interrelate is not entirely clear (he does stress that Capcom plans to embrace digital distribution for all titles eventually). The extent of this piracy is a little vague as well, as the justification for his comment seems to be how the game "was up on torrents literally the day it shipped," which is probably typical, rather than unusual.

Why do they think that we would want to buy a mindless console game for a PC?

I saw it available for download and couldn't even be bothered pirating it. 1985 and the age of button mashing fighting games has long gone.
