Here's my issue with the whole piracy thing, if you don't release a demo so I can see if your $60 pile of crap actually works and is playable im not buying.
With that said three people I know bought the Witcher 2 after watching me play it, I only actually bought it last week.
The way i see it that -1 +3 +1 roughly $200 in sales from a pirated copy $150 of which they would have never got without that copy.
The whole piracy is killing the industry is a crock.
Windows 8 its like they re made a bad ass car that everyone loved, Then took away the steering wheel and make you steer with your toes.
