Michael Pachter determines the deadline to finish the PS4 and Xbox One.
When was this recorded? We already know there’s a free game coming with XO
Pirating dont matter? Been to Asia?
So you are saying that the ratio of non-pirates to pirates is 10:1 or 10:2 or 10:3… Yes, that’s why you can’t understand me. You don’t realize how many people pirate games, music, movies and tv shows in some countries of the world. In those places the ratio is the other way, like 10 pirates for each 1 “legal” customer. Nobody buys music on iTunes in Spain. There’s no netflix or amazon instant in Spain and their equivalents are shitty and nobody wants them. The same is true for other countries
Ok people, I quit. I tried to explain but you cannot see beyond your own country. Read other comments: Arabic, french, spanish & russian markets. In all those places easy pirating equals huge selling difference. I’m not saying that console makers are willing to attract pirates, but they do attract them if their system is more easily “hackable” than the system from their competitors. In many countries with many millions customers. Maybe not in yours. Accept the world is full of different cultures
Even without kinect why is its so much more with lower specs
Pach for President !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What? They prefer the guy who buys one original game, why? Because if there’s a million guys who buy original games, that’s a huge profit compared to the couple of hundred-thousand piraters who buy two and sell it to the one million other guys.
And in Arabic countries it is not just an important selling point, it was the main selling point for the Xbox 360, and will be the main selling point for whichever next-gen console gets hacked first.
I completely agree with you.
I have explained it somewhere else. Pirating is a fact whether you like it or not or whether you do it or not. I am not condoning pirating and I don’t pirate games. I am just explaining what happens in the real world.
