Rah rah rah evil xbox pirates! They got it a week early, so what.

I wager the number of sales is lower on PC, and the percentage of pirates vs buyers is higher for these big release heavily marketed games. This is why developers whinge about the PC. Less money, more making shit for cunts who wont pay for it. Don't act all hard done by and holier than thou with your "And they say PC gamers are the worst!" Business. We kind of are.

I'm sure there are plenty of dudes here who have been a bit short on funds one week, not quite sure if that bug ridden euro release is worth it, or have the wife complaining about all the money going to steam on the credit card invoice. A quick torrent download whilst you are eating lunch and you are probably up and running faster than steam or EB could manage without endangering steak night.

Casual piracy is rampant on PC. I imagine it's is partaken by the majority of "Enthusiasts" like us on some level. Where as a committed Modchipper is beyond redemption, he is probably a significant minority within the console userbase that does not cause the kind of headache the pandemic PC ISO release disease does for the beancounters at your favorite devloper inc.
