Quoteworthy - Team Meat on Piracy

"Our game was hugely pirated – we don’t f*cking care. If there are let’s say 200,000 copies of SMB that are getting passed around for free, that's 200,000 people who are playing the game. If they like this game there’s a really high probability of their friends coming around and seeing it or them posting about it on their blogs. And it's not cool to go around and say I really like this game that I stole, so they’re not going to say that. So it's going to come around to sales." -- Super Meat Boy developers Team Meat. Thanks Rock, Paper, Shotgun.

This isn't restricted to the video game industry. There's an odd consumer phenomena in general where if you price your stuff too low, a number of consumers will shy away from it since its considered cheap crap. In fact, sometimes companies get more sales INCREASING prices.

No, it's 100% true. It's how many liquors define themselves.
Actually, I read a study where they gave people wine in a $5 bottle and wine in a $100 bottle while being hooked up to medical equipment. There were actual physical brain differences from drinking the $5 and $100 bottles, people physically enjoyed the $100 bottle more.

Despite the fact that in this study, the wines were actually identical and just had different price tags.
