    But even the other companies lower the price of the games after sometime. I could be wrong, but I don't remember Nintendo doing the same. The Wii shop channel was a joke.

    Doesn't matter what logic you use, lowering prices does not stop piracy. Unless they're going to give games away for free they can't match free.

    It's not like people don't want to pirate PS4 or Xbox One but those systems just have better security.

    Besides a lot of people who pirate are banned so even if they wanted to they can't go legit unless they buy another switch.

    Yeah Darkumbra was a mess uploaders would make revenue ads to take advantage of the site. But ever since hbg had its own discord and you did a tier donation that site became irrelevant fast.

    I'm tired of all my favorite honeypots drying up. Reddit links are unreliable because nobody fixes the links, and isosland convelutes the download links.

    Thats why you have do download the entire set of roms/iso. Then you will have them for when the good sites shut down.
    Hard drives are cheap now.

    BTW was darkumbra making a profit from the ad revenue? if so then thats why the got pwned.

    I see at best buy deals on the western digital easy store external 8 and 10 TB drives. I have seen the 10TB version for as low as $179 at their store more then twice. I would have picked up some but they are using them helium filled drives. I dont trust the Helium seal on those drives. When they are using the air filled drives ill get a few.
    Another place to get drive is from DVR machines. Any direct tv drv is gonna have atleast a 1TB drive. You just have to take the drive out and verify its still a good drive. If you see a dvr in the trash take it and take out the drive. free hdd is win

    Didn't wanted to quote such huge image, so I've removed it for the sake of making it clean, but anyway, why they don't sue some sites that allow users to publish ads and sell "multiconsoles/multigames" full of games stored on HDD's and/or SD/microSD Cards or those that sell a gaming console but promote it being "full of games", they're the real pirates here!

    One thing is me selling my console with a lot of original games, and a very diferent one, is someone selling a console "full of ilegally obtained copies of videogames"

    I'm not against sharing, I'm against selling copyrighted material if you're not the legal owner of the copyright. Some will say it's the same, but I don't think so.
