The holier-than-thou types need to shut up. YOU know you have used software illegally at some point in your life. You have no credibility.

I only want to hear from someone who has NEVER illegally obtained software. That means ANY. MP3's count.

Do you really think that hardcore PC developers have never pirated themselves? Please. It's all part of the culture, especially if you are a programmer.

Piracy is here to stay. So is PC gaming. Make a good quality game and people WILL buy it. People will also pirate it. But you will make a nice profit in the end. Stop perpetuating the piracy myths out there. The losses are far far below what is being reported. A large percentage of them aren't losses at all. 10 people download the game because they want to see it for whatever reason. These people wouldn't have bought the game otherwise. The company has lost ZERO dollars yet said company will count $50 x 10 or a $500 loss. Dishonest.

Why aren't these companies also including the figures of people who pirate the game and then actually GO BUY IT because they love it. The numbers can't be believed.

Again, shut up all of you trying to act like you have owned ALL the software that has ever been installed on any computer you have ever owned. That is bullshit. You know it and I know it. There are people who have accomplished this. But they are typically your grandma and grandpa types.

Go fuck yourself Atari. I told you that Nolan Bushnell was a nut.

This idea will never EVER work.

Some motherboard manufacturers simply wouldn't use the chip. They would choose to appear on the gamers side. There is no way in hell that a company like Gigabyte, who makes high-end hardcore motherboards, would enable this on their motherboards. That is anti-consumer and whether you want to believe it or not a high percentage of the hardcore computer users dabble in piracy. It just comes with the territory. There are many other companies that would refuse it as well.

That is where this whole charade ends. You can't force companies to use the chip. When push comes to shove people will turn away from pc gaming. PC Gamers are much more aware of their freedoms and forcing a piracy chip on them won't go well at all. Now the console morons don't care one way or the other but PC gamers are certainly the more intelligent gamers and won't stand for it.

Piracy = the most overblown thing ever.

If I download a game that I wouldn't have bought anyways what revenue have they lost? NONE. But they count me as lost revenue in these big shocking numbers they post. They have no right to do that. I wouldn't have bought their shitty game anyways. NOW, if I had took it off the shelf and walked out without paying they COULD count it as that is a retail product that was on a shelf that someone else potentially could have bought. It doesn't work that way if you obtain a digital copy.

Laughably terrible idea that will never work. Ever.

The chip will be got around within 6 months of release.

This idea is dead in the water already.

IF they ever succeeded that would be the end of my gaming. I refuse to have something like that even though I buy my games.

The greed of these gaming companies is beginning to become a major concern. And it is ALL about the greed. The companies that are putting out good products are money. Lots of it.

$10 whole dollars for a patch?

Yet people find it ok to pay $15 a month to kill the same shit over and over in WoW.

Give me a break.

Damn, WOW is so played.

I really believe you will see WoW sub numbers really drop in the next year. About 6 months after the expansion is when it will be really dramatic.

Death Knight = terrible idea. Everyone will have one. Everyone. I think many many MANY people are going to migrate to Age of Conan.

The thing about the fed wanting 20% of our electricity by wind power isn't going to happen.

Just like we will drive cars that take gasoline until our oil runs out we are going to have powerline driven electricity for quite some time.

The big corporations won't allow anything else.

What am I paying $50-$60 dollars for?

So these damn developers can act like I am leasing the software from them? They think they have the right to be actively sending information from my computer? Think again Bioware.

It's a very dangerous thing to start allowing people to do things behind the scenes with code in the name of "anti-piracy". If we allow it things will get progressively worse. Do we really want to have to start entering personal information to play a game? Sorry, games just aren't that important to me.

They still won't be getting my money on either game.

I have plenty of other things to do with my $100.

The method they are using still sucks and is anti-consumer. They can take their stupid anti-piracy shit and shove it. I think it's time I moved on to other hobbies anyways. The way gaming is trending is not good.


These companies have got to figure out they aren't doing US the privilege. We are doing THEM the privilege by buying their product. Treat us as such.

Vista is as insecure as Windows 2000 but Linux STILL SUCKS and will never be a mainstream OS.

God, the only ones publishing these articles are closet Linux fanboys.

What do you expect?

If developers keep peddling trash like GTA4 and Manhunt the landscape of games is going to completely change, as it should.

It's pretty easy to implement. If it has an M or AO rating then it sits behind the shelf. What is hard about that?

We also need to tone down what is allowed in "T" rated games.

IGN is one of the worst.

So is Voodoo Extreme which is in the IGN network.


Nice writeup on them

It doesn't matter.

GTA4 deserves every last bit of negative news it gets and more.

They are deliberately thumbing their noses at authority like little children at Rockstar and tried to fit in every distasteful thing imaginable in the game. What? You think they don't deserve it?

The game should be behind the shelf and every underage gamers parent should have to sign a form acknowledging the extreme murder, sex, and drug use in the game. Sales would have slowed exponentially. That would have made my month.

It really is sad how low gamers have allowed things to drop. If you get your rocks off on violently killing people and watching animated sex on a console you should be embarrassed.

The developers at Rockstar have proven to me they really are nasty people. How can they make trash like this? They seem very immature and they are being rewarded by even more immature consumers.

FUCK the Rockstar CEO.

All the guy goes is make reprehensible games. Drug use, murder, virtual sex. Yeah, he is a real credible guy.

Nothing wrong with casual games and the sales for them certainly agree with my stance. The majority of people just aren't willing to devote their lives to games and for the most part want to be able to just sit down and play for a few minutes.

Again, Rockstar - I can't wait until people tire of your shitty games and you fade from the scene. It will happen eventually and something tells me sooner rather than later.

Wouldn't matter.

Blizzard is super aware of their image. They wouldn't want the PR hit of suing someone. Regardless of who is right it's always a hit to the suing party.

Played the General Beta for quite awhile now.

I won't be buying retail.

It really is just another MMO.

Wow, I guess there aren't any sane people left. I am so disapointed that this site has given positive news to this negative game. I wasn't all that surprised when Voodoo Extreme went over the cliff on their coverage. But I am surprised that you are giving it props. You have bought into all the hype and that is sad to see. Plot-driven...lol you are lost.

There is no plot in GTA. The "missions" are kill kill kill. You can flower it up how you want but these games are everything bad about gaming all rolled up into one thing.

Sorry, I have played a little of all the GTA games and they are the worst games storywise made. Not to mention the EXTREME violence, sex acts and drug use. Grow up please.

Huh?

What exactly do they think they are charging the $14.99/mo for?

Just getting a MMORPG to a playable state doesn't mean you can charge monthly for the game. Frankly, MOST of these games don't even provide as much content as a good single-player game. It's all rehashed and reused content. I hope the days of the mmorpg are nearly over.
