Cecil on Piracy and Economics

MCV has a quote about game piracy from Revolution Software’s Charles Cecil, who is currently contributing to the BBC's upcoming Doctor Who game. "Personally, I think that the level of piracy we have is nature’s way of turning around and saying games are too expensive and the way that they are distributed is not ideal, he tells them. “Yes, we can pressure internet service providers and take any number of anti-piracy measures. But ultimately iTunes has shown that if you make the means of distribution easy and the price compelling, you will build the respect of your audience." In conclusion, he adds: "And while this won’t eradicate piracy completely, it won’t become such a serious issue anymore."

While what you say is true, that doesn't mean that we as customers have to just accept it and deal. I won't and I know many other that wont. It's to easy to wait for the price to fall than pay a premium. I could care less if they feel their product justifies a price increase over everything else. What they will find is that the sheep will buy into it regardless, but the rest of us will simply wait.
