You can pirate skyrim, but it is the #1 game on Steam since it came out. Make a great game and you have great sales.

Piracy is a red herring for shitty games.

A pirated game != a lost sale.

Exactly, Bulletstorm had poor performance across the board, If PC piracy was really such an issue, then they would just forgo a PC version and stick with the consoles, but they know the sales won't pan out so they won't.
Bulletstorm doomed Bulletstorm 2, not piracy. That won't stop them from pretending it was a great game and it was all the pirates fault, as it easier to attract investors by saying the fault lies with an aspect out of your control.

For clarification, he's not saying piracy doomed Bulletstorm 2, he's saying that selling under EAs expectations did. He's saying that piracy hurt PC sales.

He is not saying hurt PC sales doomed Bulletstorm 2. Not even implying that. Every single person knows that if it did well on the console it would have had a sequel, even if it was console only.

It's nice that he's also blaming the port (which I didn't know was as terrible as some here say), but would be nice if he took the bulk of the responsibility and said piracy contributed, rather than the other way around.
