... gotta wait another 7 days for the PC version because the empty suits are afraid of the big bad pirates will take away sales of their precious console versions.

Hump's probably closer than most here. And yet, it's awfully hard to say they're wrong in this belief. When you see tens or hundreds of thousands of downloads, only a liar or a fool would claim that -none- of those represent lost sales.

The actual number of lost sales is, of course, up for debate. But delaying release for the most pirated version doesn't cost them much, if anything. If you -really- want to stop this practice, all you have to do is -not- buy the game in any version, and be sure to write the company and explain why. Then convince a few thousand friends to do the same. As soon as the delay appears to cost them more than it might earn, they'll stop doing it. Best of luck on that, btw.
