stealing CDKeys. :|
Well I personally think that both methods are wrong but for me the bad one is stealing cd key
But I agree with Roflicer
Paying for hacks is worse
what kind of idiot pays for hacks??
If ur able to take a cdkey from someone, it means that they are retarded and deserve to have their key stolen.
btw mr_ice, i got my cdkeys from scamming ppl thru bnet chat and I didn't scam ppl by doing cdkey trades.
Stealing Keys/ Accounts. Because when you cheat and someone gets obset he can just change the server and does not lose the whole game
I think stealing cd keys is more wrong. It's taking profit from someone else (in the case of a store) or it's taking something someone bought (or most likely) with their own money. Either way I find it wrong.
You pay for hacks, you're a sucker. No offense to people who have ^-^
Any retailers buys those CD keys in bulks and gets them much cheaper than $60 a unit so I guess they can cry a river. It's not like nobody would ever steal from you or take you down a peg. I wouldn't be so quick to praise walmart since they're too powerful as it is and once a company has made more from a game than they spent on development it's all the more reason the price should be taken down more, how much can 26 character of text be worth at the end of the day? It really doesn't matter because there's going to be a point, if not already passed, where there will be no retailers carrying PC games. It will all be digitally purchased like steam, blizzard, etc. you usually find the better deal from cd key shops and forums anyway. The player count for those games will be much lower since not everyone has $60 to blow on a game. I mean the end product is supposed to be quality, least buggy, and run on a variety of Windows platforms at the least. Grand Theft Auto IV is the best example, originally $60, people hated it for the terrible job Rockstar did with the PC port. Now if you're going to spend $60 on something that doesn't work well in the first place, you can't help but feel cheated and this is another reason why people want to steal CD keys. A company can fuck a customer over, so why wouldn't the player choose to do the same?
This is also part of why torrents are so popular, and cracked/pirated games. People want to make sure that game is good and exactly as described before dropping cash on it to have multi-player access and more.
