I hate holier-than-thou anti-pirating chumps. If you're so righteous that you buy your media, cool. I haven't bought an album since Jay-Z's Black Album and don't plan on it ever again. If I had a modded Xbox, I certainly would be on the game download tip. It's simply the way of the world.

Well, isn't the whole point of BF3 to play it online? If it is pirated doesn't that take away the online ability? Not being a smart-ass, I'm seriously asking.

that's a stupid article since the same thing can be said about every other game that exists
this an just because some downloaded you game doesn't mean if they couldn't they would have dropped $60 on it. You can't possibly calculate how much money you are losing.

also 2 mill ain't sh*t. They make more than that on DLC alone for a lot of games.

Just because it's primarily an online games doesn't mean that it doesn't mean anything.

as long as the game is good, there is no worry, they will make money. Pirating promotes great games

Pirates are in the minority, not to mention a good amount of people who pirate these games end up buying them.

Of course not, they just lost potential buyers. It doesn't matter if it's single or multiplayer, they still loose out on those buyers.

Thats 1.5% of launch day sales.

To say they "LOST" sales a.ssumes those people would have bought the game if they couldn't dl it...doubtful.

non-story.
