Who the fuck has ever 'gone to a local street vendor and bought a pirated copy of a game'?

I think that's fairly common in places where broadband is uncommon or prohibitively expensive for most people, like Russia, China, Vietnam, Thailand, etc.

Those are places where the supply of legimate copies of a game are extremely limited, and that's an entirely different problem all-together.

Word. That was the case in Poland at least up to the late 1990s (the last time I visited and witnessed it). Not only were legit games hard to come by, but they were prohibitively expensive. Internet was also incredibly expensive.
