Just because people downoad doesn't mean they

Some people here should really learn that just becuase the game is being downloaded doesn't man the downloaders won't buy. The majority of the people who download will buy! The only reason they are downloading it is becuase they want to play it now. Most know its impossible to play online with a pirated copy and I bet they will go out and buy it anyway.

 

I had a chipped XBOX and am getting my 360 chipped. On my XBOX I only downloaded games to play them as soon s possible, I always bought them. My firned is playing GTA IV right now but his is ordered already.

 

One thing PC game downloading is a diffrent matter! It is possible to hack keygens so online is poosible, though itds diffrent with consoles

Return of the Lump

I honestly dont see what they are crying about, I am NOT cancel'n my order. even if I had the opportunity to pirate the game I would still buy an official copy,

 

They cry about loosing money, when games are over priced as it is anyways, along side console systems that break 1-3 generations in, only on 4th generation models do the systems do what they were intended/advertised to do.

 

Yea ok, it's wrong, get over it. this is (IMO) making me want gta4 even more the videos are f*cking amazing!

Downloading the game is illegal but since when are you a 100% law-abiding citizen?

You are playing a game about criminality so don't tell me you hate criminals and have never done anything wrong or in your favour that broke the rules.

 

Oh and for you who say its the principle of it, I don't think 60€$ is fair. So for the principle of it i'll download it thank u very much and check it out first before i pay my hard earned money on games that are mostly over priced for what they are. Even GTA4 is overpriced but i want it anyway. (for the record i won't download it because i have a ps3, that and i happen to know its super good and worth my money)

I see your point but yeah, it's principles mate. The only time i break the rules is at work and it aint criminal law, it's queue jumping!

If they just allow the stores to sell it as soon as it arrives they could be heroes to the community and save themselves millions, maybe tens of millions.

I'm playing it now but of course i will buy a legal copy (special edition).

Only for this game, other games i download without buying (too much for me to pay $50-80 for one game).

 

While PC games (legal) cost there about $10 (and it's legal). I think it's a good price.

when they'll drop prices for console games i would buy em but now... no.

The best gamer in the world.

Downloading it helps a lot of other people download.

A lot of people out there that won't buy the game.

Speak for your self. I write English better than you.

 

I didn't correct anything- hence the absence of any edited time stamp.

 

I have known about the drive FW hack for the X360 for a while. Quit portraying yourself as enlightened- you're a consumer who reads populer websites; nothing more.

Just to correct people.. downloading a pirated game is illegal, yes. However, if you have a burned copy of a game you own, that is not illegal. So for people saying they are going to buy it when it comes out anyway.. you can't really bitch at them about the law. When they buy it, their pirated copy becomes legal. Its considered a back-up in case their original disc is scratched and will hold up in court.

For every 1 of you who say you buy the game as well as illegally download it, there are 100 more who just play the pirated copy, in an era where games cost $50 million dollars to make, that puts a big hurt on videogame companies. If your trying to justify your actions, go somewhere else...your a criminal...deal with it.

im a downloader, music, films, Tv shows, etc I admit it. I have no real qualms with it, especially the music side (dont get me started).

 

however, if someone PM'd me right now with and awesome torrent, that would take under a day to download, I wouldnt do it.

 

these people at rockstar have worked for up to 4 years for april 29th, the release day. sure I've had a peek at the game play vids etc, but at the same time, good or bad, I was still going to buy the game.

 

from the interviews and stuff you can clearly see that a lot of blood sweat and tears went into making this game, and who am I to say "well f*ck them capitalist f*cks, I aint payin for an overpriced dvd, ill just use my HaXoR sKiLlZ" ?

 

Id prefer to just wait it out and pay my money fair and square.

 

im not condeming the people that have put it online, otherwise Id be a hypocrite, its just this time around, its not for me.

I'm pretty sure that you personally can't vouch for every person who pirates a game, so either way, R* loses some(a small amount, but still an amount) revenue. Either way, its against the law and no amount of justification you try to give it will change it.

No. That is a misconception.

That is how the law USED to be, like ten years ago.

 

Now it is, you copy a game - you copy a game. Illegal, and carries heavy penalties.

Oh yes, because with piracy and courruption we don't have to worry about any of the war, death, and famine that burdens our world.

Piracy contributes to a commune/communist philosophy. It really pisses the profiteers and Corporate Governance off- hence the imprisonment, and other legal punishment.

 

You're going to get negativity just for mentioning it on the Internet, cause most of the traffic is capitalist people who pay for net access.

No backups are still allowed actually.

 

What I am trying to say is that rockstar will lose no money over the leak
