Red Alert 3 Dev: PC Piracy a "Huge Concern"

VideoGamer.com has an excerpt from an upcoming interview with Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 producer David Silverman where he makes one of those quotable comments about the deplorable state of PC piracy. Apparently he hasn't noticed all the recent indications of rampant console piracy from the tone of this comment: "In all honesty piracy is a huge concern. Luckily people haven't figured out an easy way to pirate on consoles, otherwise you'd be telling me, 'oh, the console market's dying!'. It's a big problem and it's hard because you've got people like Greg (Black, lead balance designer) and a lot of guys on the development team who have been spending countless hours and someone just goes to download on a torrent site and they get the game. It's an unfortunate likelihood and it's one of the penalties that broadband came out. But unlike the music industry which went about it in an interesting way, we're trying some new things and I think we'll be productive in the years to come."

Well according to the torrent sites, far cry 2, fallout 3, dead space, all console pirated versions came out before the pc pirated versions. Yet is there anyone talking about console piracy?

But how many are playing those rather than pirated PC versions?

Piracy on a console isn't as simple as just downloading the game like it is on the PC. No one thinks you can totally get rid of piracy altogether; it's keeping it to an absolute minimum, or at least to a point where it doesn't immediately impact sales numbers, that's important. Looking at it in that respect, console piracy and PC piracy aren't even remotely the same animal.
