What makes you so sure that everyone who downloaded the game has a source of income?
Who the hell said "everyone"? This is what's driving me nuts. No one said "everyone". People aren't stupid, obviously there are 12 year olds in Malaysia with no real income downloading this game. But then there are 30 year olds here in the United States with plenty of money who could have purchased the game.

It's all about percentages, not everyone may have been able to buy the game, but a certain percentage of them could. Even if only 10% could, and only as many copies were pirated as sold, that's still 100-150k copies that could and should have been purchased instead of pirated. There are people pirating the game that can easily buy it if they decide to do so, and that's the point.

And even if you can't afford the game, that doesn't mean you have the right to go steal it.

What makes you so sure that people are enjoying the game..?
Generally speaking, when a game is selling a million+ copies, there are people out there who liked the game.;) What you're hearing are the squeaky wheels out there, they like to be loud so that they get noticed. Unhappy people are louder than happy people, which always makes it hard to get truly representative feedback from a forum like Blue's.
