    what i mean i'm not going be download any thing that is against the law... the only thing i am going have to download is psp iso's... and old computer games and other rom hacking japanese to english games. for the reason for the psp is my umd slot is broken... and there are some old cpu games i wanted to try (i found an old little gem game somewhere) so yeah.... i'm also back on soný's side and i'm boycotting nintendo and i'm giving my cousins or throwing away all of my burned wii games... and selling my 2 flash carts so yeah... i just had to express my ways i guess the reason why i'm boycotting nintendo is it almost screwed up my x-mas with my family nuff said... that's all i have to say i guess...

    But downloading PSP ISOs is piracy, and old computer games are still piracy (abandonware is not an actual legal concept)...

    Wrong, because those games no longer go to the developers pockets even if you buy them in stores or used from someone else.

    So downloading it makes no difference.

    I download Wii games just to try them for 24 hours, if i like them I'll buy them, if not I just delete them and that's it.

    "My UMD slot is broken so I have to pirate games" is as solid an argument as "my laptop doesn't have a disk drive so I'm going to pirate music"

    UMD drives are fixable (dealextreme/tmart/eachgame/ebay all sell the replacement parts), or you could just buy a new PSP.

    Also, boycotting a company that you were already pirating software from is a really dumb move. Like me saying "I'm gonna boycott Ford" even though the only car I own is an Infiniti. (Ford isn't making hasn't made any money off of me as it is)

    I didn't say morally, I said legally. Copyright in the US is inherent and is the author's life plus 70 years, even something as old as Pong is still protected.

    Also there's PSN for buying games.

    So you will stop stealing from Nintendo because you hate them and will only steal from Sony from now on because you are Sony's biggest fan? You are still a pirate. You can buy a Vita and download those PSP games on the virtual console.

    Nintendo doesn't give a damn.

    I don't think I've ever read something so stupid before.

    You're boycotting Nintendo? By throwing away your PIRATED GAMES? THAT'S NOT A BOYCOTT.

    And "I'm giving up piracy.. except I'm going to pirate PSP isos and PC games, and roms" - and probably music too, which you haven't mentioned. So.. you aren't stopping pirating anymore, you're just stopping pirating Nintendo games.

    And a cpu is a central processing unit, it is NOT synonymous with "computer". What CPU game did you play? "Install the Heatsink"?

    My personal favourite cpu game is either "Apply Thermal Paste" or "Overclock".

    I guess that means you will stop looking at porn since 98% of people who watch it are pirates.

    I have to go with the general flow of the people on here, go big or go home really if your gonna stop then stop.

    I have reduced my downloading of less than legal stuff but I wouldn't call it stopping or even stopping sorta I just cut back heavy on it, I got plenty PSP umd's but I also download some iso images. My steam games list is well over 600 titles and my gog list over 100 but I still download the odd pc game (bad ones for the lol) but yea.

    But really why tell us your essentially cutting back and boycotting Nintendo while not even telling us why? Makes it sound like your a typical world of Warcraft forum rager :P

    At best maybe rethink your position in all this and if you care to post your thoughts again more constructively :)

    "I'm not going to pirate anymore by continuing to pirate." Okay.

    Funny how some people bash on others who downloaded pirated games and they act like they never did the same thing.
