Still don't get why people here like to compare PC and Xbox piracy.

The gaming industry seem to make stupid comparisons all the time, why wouldn't the people do the same thing?

In regard to the ARM article - great for tablets, but why are most phones becoming tablets. Their HUGE! honest to god whilst slightly thinner the latest and greatest phones are the same size as a 1980s brick. People need to get past this "my phone can do everything" mentality and aim for a phone to be a phone, a tablet to be a tablet and a PC to be a PC.

People are lazy and don't want to put the effort into thinking about more than one device.

Anyway, this wasn't an inside job, so morale is likely fine.

Latest one I've seen? A 3d phone - wtf? who really wants to sit down and watch a 3d movie on their 4.3" phone screen.

I still just want a phone built into my watch - that would do me. Sod Angry Birds, I want to have a stylish watch I can make phone calls on.

I had to upgrade last week and went for the smallest smartphone on the market - yes I like the fact I can tag my car and find it again in a festival carpark. And yes I like the fact I can use it to work out my mpg or check the weather. But whilst I could play angry birds on it - I'd much rather pick up my daughters Ipad for a game then play it on my phone.

Boy, those evil PC pirates!

I hope GoW3 still sells 10,000,000 copies, so we can once and for all see that this whole "piracy is killing the industry" fairy tale is just horseshit.

Time to come up with a new excuse, publishers.

That would be lovely.
"yeah see.. they pirated it and we only sold.. *holds finger to ear*..wait, what? how many? .. no way, that's fantastic!.. well it seems that piracy isn't the real problem, it's developers making shitty, bug-riddled, unfinished games.. who knew!?!"

-we knew.. ya fuck.

Yeah, just remember Mark and Cliffy, the console kids would never do you any harm, right?

I feel bad for the employees at Epic that weren't involved in the leak. I suspect there will be a massive inquisition there now and that management's trust of the staff and morale in general have plummeted.
