Lucky enough there’s always the world of IRC.. :)
Anyway, in context of this event, think about this: How many copies of the new Super Mario DS have been sold on the first day? How many copies of Oblivion? How many of Dave’s commercially released albums have I bought for about $30 each (because of overseas shipping)?
It would also be interesting to compare the numbers for Splinter Cell 2 and 3.. The latter with Starforce protection. I bought the first two versions of Splinter Cell. But not the third. Ubisoft fortunately listened to its customers and is not using Starforce anymore.
Also take a look at the box office numbers for the new X-Men movie. Problems with piracy anyone? Seriously: F*ck off! :) (But I do think it’s weird that people spend money on all these crap movies. But hey, that’s just me.. On the other hand, compared to the DaVinci code thing, the X-Men are probably good value for the money.. :)
Well, in a world gone mad..
