Yes, I know it's contradicting the title but please hear me out.
As we all know, pirating of softwares/movies/games is the cancer of big companies and corporations. They will are going to fucked up sale volumes or the company wouldn't be able to sell a dime because all their copies where sold by pirates like Jack Sparrow.
But try to think of the larger picture, think of Starcraft, Counter-Strike, Call of Duty 4 and 6 etc. These are very epic games that you might think of buying for game collection and the shit.
of course, I have this experience of using a lot of stuff that isn't "legit". Being in a third-world country when pirating laws is pretty weak it's a big privilege for us
but the thing is, I had this beautiful experience. I want to buy an original Starcraft Battlechest and maybe call of duty 4 and 6 because I want to have a collection of them.
Also, I'm experiencing some type of dilemma right now:
should I wait for another crack or just buy the damn game!
Yes, modern warfare 2 fans! I'm willing to shell out some bucks to buy an original of this game... because, I had a taste of it's multiplayer flaws and prowess (even though I know that a lot of you guys hate this shit)
I was able to play a cracked version of this from 166 to 174, now since IW and Steam is winning the battle against the pirates. I'm beginning to feel a little dissatisfied, I want more than playing this for a few weeks! and the only thing to do is BUY A GOD DAMN ORIGINAL COPY.
Now on the OP TOPIC:
Could it be possible that, IW or any other games that been epic and was pirated by the millions. Was just waiting for the right opportunity to "KABAM" kick the living hell out of the pirates to buy the damn original stock? Since right now this is what I feel.
And yeah, there was an article that Bill Gates loved how China was using his OS
