    Ok guys, I've got a research paper to write on homebrew and piracy. So I figure I'll take a sample size poll. Please answer honestly, I know there have been polls similar to this, but I wanted a fresh poll, so tell people to do this, I'll throw it in my sig eventually. Thanks for helping!

    PS
    Console of choice can mean PS3, or it can mean Wii or other hackable console. The one you play the most I would say.

    Wanna help some more?

    ok then for console of choice do you use homebrew or pirate?i put neither
    Did you buy your console of choice because it had homebrew/pirating capabilities?no
    How much do you pirate?i generally only pirate games.i do however buy a ton of PS3/Xbox 360 games (100+games combined)but i've pirated way more DS/Wii games then games i actually own so pirating games for me is more then actually buying.

    I bought my Wii and DS to play awesome Nintendo games, not to pirate or to run homebrew. A year ago I read something about homebrew and here we are today, pirate shit games but buy games that are worthy.

    I bought my DS and Wii to play bought games, but that all changed when I leaned about Homebrew. I know now to look out for hackable consoles. When I pirate a game, it's usually to test it... But most games don't make it to my buy list. Three exceptions so far are: Pokemon Soul Silver, Crystal Chronicles Echos of Time, and Suikoden Teirkreis.

    I'm the same as thegame. I'll buy games I like but I've got plenty of pirated stuff. I do use homebrew as well.

    I got my ds because my friends had one. I bought 3 games before learning about flashcards. Now me and all of my friends have archives of $1000+ worth of ds games. I got the wii because of the motion controllers. I bought 4 wii games before deciding to softmod. I have $300+ worth of pirated wii games and counting.

    I didn't even learn about pirating until six months or so ago. For money issues (though not a significant excuse to steal) is the reason why I pirate. There will always be games I will never pirate though, such as Golden Sun, and Fire Emblem to name a couple.

    i only pirate ds titles, the stationary thing is to complex for my taste and the attraction to buy games for wii is bigger than the will to pirate something for it:.

    I mostly download a game to "check it out" but i never play through an entire game without buying it.

    Some games don't have demos so there's no way I'm spending $50-60 on a leap of faith. I buy way more games than I financially should however, I've spent close to $1000 in steam games and what not.

    I'd buy a ps3 if you could pirate on it and basically is why I have not purchased one.
