More like throwing people with weapons at the Germans. Their soldiers was so expendable, that by the end of the war, the rate for the German-Soviet was something like 1-10.

They only really sucked ass for 1 year. After early-1943, they began pushing the German forces back.

For those of us who didn't pass reading with comprehension at fourth grade level:
I didn't GIVE any statistics. That is why I said "even if". For those of us who don't understand what that means it means "For example"
And second, that's nice for you. Unfortunately that's not how actual research works. What you are saying is anecdotal and only applies to you. And its also bullshit. Because, unless you are extremely different from every other person in the world, if you only got to play games you can actually pay and didn't have any other option to get them, you'd be buying more.
What happens now is you go "I REALLY want this game, and its awesome, so I'll buy it!" and you do. But when game comes along that you kinda want to play "Oh well, I'll just download this one and I'll spend my money on (insert something you want but can't get for free)".
That is because you have an option to not buy it and still get it. If you didn't have an option, you would weigh in wanting that game vs. wanting something else, and sometimes decide to buy the game. Maybe not much more often, but occasionally.

Few things that people who are against piracy usually overlook.

One being what UnoSkullmanx said. Now I get it you already answered to him but consider the following. A good portion of people who pirate games with no initial interest in buying it, actually purchases it after giving it a go.

Secondly, piracy is good publicity. Good example of this would be Breaking Bad or Game of Thrones. Even Vince Gilligan admitted that piracy has done good for the show.

Now don't get me wrong, you had fair points and I understand your reasoning. The things mentioned above obviously don't apply to every product and as a result end up in losses.

I believe that in the end piracy balances thing out +-0 on average. Obviously there are those that do bad and those that do good.

This is the worst fucking argument I've heard, how the fuck do we know if someone would have not bought a game if he didn't pirate it? Because he said so? Or inst it more likely people say this because they want to justify the fact that they are stealing. A game is a product, if you want it, buy it, or fucking don't. this is the way the world works.

No, not EVERY pirated game or movie is a lost sale. But a good percentage is. Even if number of people who'd buy the game if they had no other option is as low as 10% at the launch, if a game gets pirated million times, that is hundred thousand lost sales, or close to half a million lost.
And what it really hurts is sale of discounted games.
#36 - UnoSkullmanx (11/18/2013) [-]
You're pulling that number out of your ass. I can make up statistics to support my arguments, but I choose not to. If a pirate downloads a game illegally, then he/she didn't give enough of a fuck about the game itself to pay for it. Every game I've pirated, I wouldn't have bought for any price. Games that I care about like Skyrim or Borderlands or a plethora of other games, I payed for.

that is word for word the damn hollywood anti-piracy pitch he gave. The only people that recieve more if the movie takes off are the writers, actors, directors, all the bigwigs essentially. Piracy hasn't done shit to hollywood, the only reason they don't want to gamble with new ideas for movies anymore is due to the costly CGI that everyone expects.
Games, on the other hand, are a whole different matter. They run into a huge problem, since most gamers know how to easily pirate their product, and they have to work by selling an expensive product to what is still a very small market. Each game that gets pirated is 50-60 bucks from them, rather then the fucking spare change movies lose.
#27 - mattmurdock (11/18/2013) [-]
how about you do some research then talk to me. Because I've talked with the people who do all that for a living and no the actors CONTRACTS set the amount that they will receive not the sales, same with the big wigs. Most of the little people are paid on a sliding scale, yes they get minimum wage, but that is grossly under what they should be paid. Which is where movie and home copies come in to play.
#26 - UnoSkullmanx (11/18/2013) [-]
A pirated game is NOT a lost sale to a producer, because it's a logical fallacy to assume that the pirate would have bought the product. This is a common misconception that needs to be stomped out.

Hey, I was just wondering, if you don't play items anymore, could I have yours?
I understand if you say no, just figured I would ask anyways :)
