Welcome to the United States of Money Mongering Greed! We are ROME people, and we will fall. Having said that, I LOVE my country, but I don't agree with the path we have chosen.
See, I didn't really need to spend $50,000 on my Audi S4, but I love 300-400hp, all wheel drive, 6 speed, luxury sport vehicles. No doubt some of you would view this as a "waste of money" (like I care) I also love quick and easy file downloading.
Sometimes it's just FASTER to go to a well organized site that has fat bandwidth, and take two minutes to get a download rolling. I know all the ways to get files without paying including IRC, bit torrent, underground FTPs, etc. I use these when I need something important (other than games). As for game demos, videos, mods, I don't mind paying fileplanet to make it fast for me.
Every time one of these exclusives comes up, you all start whining about "slippery slopes" and getting ripped off. As if the world owes you free and easy downloads or something.
Oh, and to the tools out there who use this stupid notion: "I already pay for my internet connection"..
SO? Does your internet provider pay for the bandwidth of other sites and services you use? Do they pay for hardware used at these services? What about the employees? Just because you have access to the internet doesn't mean everything else should be free. Get a clue.
The fact is, you can still get these files 100% free, AFTER the premiers are over. I don't have a membership at this particular service, and I'm not getting one. So shut up and wait for it. For christ sakes, the whole game comes out in what 9 days or something?
Lastly, we aren't talking about Patches here. I use fileplanet for demos, videos, mods and stuff like that. When was the last time you bought a game that you had to go to a 3rd party to get patches? I have shitloads of games on my computer and I get the patches directly from the companies that made them. Demos aren't patches. No one owes you a free demo.
America, FXXK YEAH!
Coming again, to save the mother fXXking day yeah!
He cut the possum's face off then cut around the eye socket. In the center of the belt buckle, where the possum's eye would be, he has placed a small piece of wood from his old '52 Ford's home made railroad tie bumper. Damn, he misses that truck.
