    I personnally got the game thanks to him, i'm ready to donate 1, 2 or 5 euros to help! If a donation website was created and half of the downloaders agree to give something, it could be a solution maybe...?

    I wouldn't donate towards him, he shouldn't have bragged about it in the first place

    I was just checking X-Play today..and New Super Mario Bros Wii is STILL the TOP SELLING GAME!!

    and they bullshit about "loss of sales"

    more like "could have had higher million dollar profits"

    and furthermore the fucking ridiculous fine is to set a precedent.

    intimidation. scare tactics.

    like executing a prisoner for speaking out against the government in a communist country...after seeing it. it makes the people of that country not want to speak out against the government doesn't it?

    same goes here.

    if you can fine the living shit out of ONE individual...you can scare other release groups into ceasing their releasing and leaking

    or that's what they HOPE to accomplish

    either way...we love the release groups

    and fuck you nintendo, cause you're never going to find em!!!

    Wow...now we all know that he did something stupid, and bragged about it, but I still think that it is a bit harsh -- not every downloader has the ability to play the game (people who haven't modded their Wiis), not every downloader does play the game, not every downloader would have bought the game in the first place - quite a hefty fine considering all.

    Regardless, I think the Aussies that got the dump should at least help pay for it - I'm not saying bail him out, he did make a mistake and brag about it, but a few bucks goes a long way with that many people.

    But, just because he made a mistake, he does not deserve the complete disrespect and borderline insulting going on in this thread. There are so many dumpers out there doing this for you, if they get caught you don't just say "Oh...oh well, they were stupid. Not my problem."

    Agreed...all the PSP and DS, Wii, 360 Etc dumpers are not really appreciated as much as they should...

    but they dont want the spotlight....they do their it to stick it to the big companies...that is their reward to themselves

    C'mon, tintin. What's with the hypocritical tone? This is a site for discussing "releases." Not a gba/wii/ds fan-site.

    Hell.
    I agree with exile here, you'd have to be heartless not to feel sorry for the guy. No one deserves to be fined 1.5 million unless they formatted all the computers with the data for the game or just burnt the factory that makes the games to the ground. While he shouldn't have bragged about, what if you were in his position?
    Also, we may be being watched, 50 guests and one anonymous user...

    to upload pre-release games:

    1) get pre release game
    2) find scene group email (read a few nfos)
    3) email scene group await reply with dump site address
    4) rip game
    5) ftp game to scene group dump site
    6) receive a month's free leech off a topsite
    7) await game to propogate from FTP to Torrents to Usenet to HTTP
    8) do not pay 1.3m AUD

    simples.

    Bragging about it on GBATemp, then using torrents to upload it, maybe not the best idea.

    priceless XD

    yes the plan must not be leaked [​IMG]

    I think it was a Nintenty suit...because now that we mentioned "them" the anonymous user vanished...

    YEA, YOU BETTER RUN!

    Yeh! Real sophisticated technology!
    The poor guy might as well have emailed Ninty directly with all of his personal details and then handed himself over.
    No offense. But for god sake! What a dick!

    Now there's two of them.

    Edit: And when I say that they both leave...this can't be good.
