Plus it's been a trend lately that the Xbox versions of games get leaked and pirated before the PC versions do (skyrim, MW3, technically Dead Island hurr durr). The pirate excuse holds absolutely no legitimacy now.
yeah it does. at least for now.
most console gamers are not pc literate enough to download torrent games and then figure out how to patch it and get it running.
downloading pirated games is much much more common for pc games.
Wait, what fucking facts are you basing this on?
I mean, you're right. Most console gamers wouldn't know how to pirate... Then again most PC gamers probably wouldn't either believe it or not (especially now with services like steam making PC gaming accessible on a level it never was before). I have a feeling your "most" is different than my "most". My definition of "minority" can still mean "enough" whereas you seem to make it out to be like shooting at a tank with an airsoft rifle.
Quite a few console gamers are "computer literate". Far more than enough to turn heads. This "hurr durr conzl gamrs r dumd" shit is not only getting old, but getting fucking ridiculous. I mean from the outside in, it looks like a joke at first. If non-gamers or console gamers were to look at this forum right now, they'd go "Yeah, poke fun at console guys. They can take it. Everyone needs some good exaggerated absurdest humor..... wait.... they actually BELIEVE that shit? Fuck...."
For fuck's sake, I don't know a single person that BOUGHT MW3 for the 360, yet a lot of them own it.
It's like finding out someone you went to highschool with was part of a long like of klan members and he himself was working his way up. You just can't believe that guy is THAT stupid. You knew he had a problem, but not THAT problem.
