Have you been affected by videogame piracy?

Post by April_Croft » Tue Jun 07, 2011 12:22 pm

Well I recently bought Hello Kitty Big City Dreams for Ds from ebay...It did work on my ds but not on my 3DS (which is supposed to play DS games) nor did it work on my boyfriend's nephew's Ds...I decided to report it as it was a blatant fake and I HATE fake Hello Kitty... I am a hardcore HK fan so that really did not go down well with me lol...

anyway I just reported the seller to the Nintendo anti-piracy team.

Do you think I did the right thing and has videogame piracy ever been a problem for you?

You definitely did the right thing! Pirated games suck >.< I have pirated my fare share of music in the past, but at this point it's become so much more than file sharing. I hate that people are getting rich off pirated games >:( Especially now that I'm in the game industry. If someone sold me a pirated game I'd do everything I could to get them screwed over. File with Paypal, eBay, the authorities, everyone you have to!
Nothing is certain until your dead and then I'm sure God negotiates.
