But that is true. Used game sales directly steal money. Pirates just copy games.

So yeah, piracy is actually a lot less worse than used game sales. Even if 70% would not buy a game if it weren't used.. the other 30% would, so thats a clean 30% lost profit.

While pirates would never consider buying anything, which makes it 0% lost profit. (in fact, if pirates DO buy ye game then you get extra profit you should never have expected to make!)

There's no way it's 0%, as plenty of pirates would buy stuff if pirating wasn't available. I mean, quite literally, if you eradicating piracy tomorrow and piracy was no longer an option you'd have an increase in sales. How much is definitely open to debate, and pirates absolutely do buy stuff, anyway. I'd guess most pirates are among the highest spenders of games.
