that's a stupid article since the same thing can be said about every other game that exists
no it can't. certain games are hugely popular on pc's, others are not. who pirates mario kart? madden doesnt lose huge sales to pc. It's usually only first person shooters/action games that lose out with huge multi player following. do i care? not really. i dont like that they are trying to stop people from buying used games with all these new game only codes.

mw is cartoon trash ... at least bf3 attempts to give you something new and fun as opposed to every single call of duty where youre perpetually in an alley going to the exact same spot every game while half the players sit in corner behind their claymore waiting for you to walk. Saying how much money they lost is allways stupid ... why a.ssume they would have ever paid for it in the first place. i bet its less than 5% of those people would have bought it but didnt cuz of download

Totally misleading stat.....it's not like all of those 33,000 people were going to buy the game had they not been able to download it. I would bet most of them wouldn't in fact.

The people downloading and burning represent a small percentage of the market. All games get bootlegged and shared. Those bootleggers were never part of the target market, and their sales would have never counted. There might be a small number of people in there who decided to save $60 for the rest of the games dropping, but let's not front like the industry doesn't curve its projections for bootlegging.

There ´s a difference between not making money and losing money ...
if i cant afford all these games and d/l one ,EA is not losing money .its not hurting the industry at all

The real question is how many of all those who d/l it would have bought BF3 ?Nobody can really answer that question ,Could be only 20%

The Gaming industry is actually doing good,dont let them fool you

Simple Simon a.ss n*ggas talkin bout economics and non job havin n*ggas and only download free mixtapes fu*k else you on this site for the decor and overall graphic design? We all dl some illegal sh*t from time to time. And real talk I dl games and cop sh*t. Game prices have always been about the same and same for the quality some games get hyped and turn out to be a.ss. I dl sh*t and if I like it enough I'll support the sh*t and cop it legit (Batman, Bio shock, Street f!ghter, COD, Dark Souls) But those games turn out to be repetitive garbage or are plagued with glitches and sh*t get the download and coaster treatment.
