    Well, most of the games I pirate I wouldn't necessarily buy. I mean, they're decent fun, some of them, but not anything worthy of a buy. I'll still buy games that are worth buying. I'm already hoping to pre-order No More Heroes 2.

    Probably not much, since I've got no money. I'd say approximately 60~100 euros.

    Sold the GBA dev kit awhile ago, never got a DS one as they came off as flakey and I refuse to mod a console so you figure it out. [​IMG]

    A couple hundred. Many of the games I download have no chance of being bought buy me.

    I wish to buy the games I pirate when I get a job, but chances are that won't happen.

    I think I'd save a few hundred dollars. I've got sixteen games so that does equal a few hundred bucks.

    Negative 17 dollars. I wouldn't have bought a single game either way, and I spent $17 on a DSTT and microSD, so...

    Prolly 300 euro's. Pirating X360 games + PC games + DS games = epic profit.

    Saved Money [​IMG]

    What have you been drinking last night?

    I'm $300 overbudget for the year due mostly to gaming with utilities being the second factor, I'm usually only $50-$100 overbudget in a normal year.

    I saved no money because I buy all my newer games and pirate the classics (no reason to lay down $50 for a SNES or a rare Genesis game and the consoles).
