    \Erasing piracy decreases supply. It increases the rarity of the product, which in turn increases the price.

    If supply and demand actually worked that way, the price of anything that can be pirated would be zero, because the supply is infinite. This isn't the case, so your premise is shit.

    EDIT: Fuck it..I'll bite. Your premise is shit. You presume that because a product can be pirated then EVERYONE will pirate it. No. A majority don't even know what a torrent is. Let alone websites like megaupload, etc.

    Give it up dude. Just admit that you're fucking stealing and get on with your life. No one even gives enough of a shit to even do anything about it.

    It's funny because while you speak horrors of piracy the thing that hurts sales of quality independent games the most is lack of exposure due to being drowned in shovelware on the digital stores.

    The best thing that could possibly happen for Underrail sales is to give 50% of everyone who owns a PC a free copy. Would become a classic instantly and we'd be bitching about how much they've declined by pandering to the masses 10 years from now.

    What horrors? There are no real horrors. Reality is that piracy prolly only takes away a small % from AAA games revenues

    But it IS taking away revenues from studios.

    Styg , any thoughts on this? I personally think this is bullshit. Also, Charles-cgr even went as far as going on the pirate bay and posting that he is an indie developer and to please stop pirating his games. I know because I tried pirating his game a few years ago. Never ended up doing it. So I bought it instead.

    It probably hurts independant studios more than it hurts AAA studios <- ....... that's such a retard-obvious sentence (duh)

    Kids will be kids, kids don't have money, and parents aren't growing money on trees. Teenagers will continue to pirate as long as it is possible, probably (the ones that invest time and energy into it to learn about it), and then grow up, start a job, and most of the little pirates will disappear and become law abiding consumers.

    You fucktard. There is no moral high ground here. Me and you are the same. Except one of us is deluded enough to convince themselves that what they're doing is a victimless crime...no...even as far as believing it's actually a benefit to the victim.

    What comes next, begging people to only buy your game at full price on the developer website instead of steam?

    Lol. I'd rather have that than emotional manipulation by a studio a la Larian. And they're bros. But they know how to play the game.

    EDIT: Whatever. I've said what I was gonna say. Damned Registrations and you can feel free to believe what you want. IMO I say go ahead and pirate if you can't afford it. Just don't have any delusions of grandeur, and at least admit to yourselves what you're doing. Personally, I felt regret only like 5% of the time when I pirated stuff.


    Probably explains why I consistently buy indie games now that i have $$ to spare.

    Really? I mean..it's pretty obvious. the guy knows how to play the PR game. Id say that he's a bit ahead of Fargo in that respect because he's a bit more genuine in what he's trying to do. But to me it's obvious he plays on the nostalgia and emotional strings to get people hyped up.

    EDIT: Even then, I still can't help loving Larian. they're my fav indie studio right now. A close second is Whalenought Studios.

    Some people never get it.

    If you make a quality product, people will automatically buy it, because it's so fucking great, you can't help yourself.

    Meanwhile, if you make a fucking shit product, why should you be entitled to get money from it? Share it, free.

    People that pirate your shit, wouldn't buy it anyway, if pirating was not possible, so you practically don't lose anything.

    You can't lose money on something that was worth nothing to begin with.

    If I couldn't pirate TV shows and Movies I'd probably pay for them. It's likely the reason why I pay for a Netflix subscription.
