The question is this: If I can use a hack to download a game which I have on disc without paying for it a second time, and if I don't sell the disc or otherwise let others use it, is it still piracy? I'm hoping we can have an interesting discussion about this. A few notes: Ethics: Are we hurting the developer? Legality: Is this considered piracy in North America? Asia? Europe? Should we just rip the games instead? What are the differences between ripped games and downloaded ones? This is completely hypothetical at this point. Base your discussion on what if there was such a hack, what if people used it, etc.
