    I bought a lot of 3ds games... but not that many! Most of my favorite 3ds titles were pirated.

    That's another reason I'm cool with piracy. People that don't have the money to blow on videogames still get a chance to play. There's no loss because they wouldn't have been bought anyway.

    I have more 3ds games but cant find em at the moment. I rounded up what I could to make a point.

    But there is loss. When they do get the spare money to spend on games, they probably wont, because who wants to spend money on a 3ds title when they can save up for an NX? Or maybe they'll tell their friends, the loyal Nintendo customers. And the piracy will still deter devs.





    I still do it.

    Maybe. Im sure there are people who could afford games but choose to pirate just to keep their pockets heavy. But I think there are still enough supporters to keep the industry strong. And if you save money from pirating and put it towards a new gen console, I would think that would be a win for the game companies as well.

    I pirate all the time. Anything I buy I consider a donation for a job well done.

    I own more physical 3ds games than .cia files, but that's because I bought my games before I knew about 3DS hacking and also being on 9.3+ before memchunkhax2 came along.

    I like to think of it as "sharing". If someone posts something like a game on the internet, they're sharing the game with you...But that's only if they bought the game. Now, if I had known that they somehow got the game for free (Hacking a server from a game developer), then I wouldn't download that game

    I don't think of piracy as stealing. I think of it as borrowing.

    I don't like calling it piracy because it trivializes very real piracy that happens all over the world.

    Haha we really don't. You know, there is a VERY slim chance you'll get caught pirating
