At risk of sounding noobish: Is it that easy to pirate for console?

Apparently the Xbox (and everything else MS puts out) gets cracked open not too long after release. My roommate told me Black Ops was cracked in a couple days. I didn't know the Wii was a victim too and figured there would be some sort of PS3 mention.

So I guess it is relatively easy depending which one.

I may or may not have bought games in Singapore like everyone else, but I didn't think you could download straight to the system.

I'm pretty sure you have to mod your xbox 360 and never connect to Xbox Live.

Not a surprise really. With success you gotta expect piracy too.

So people are still pirating games? But I'm sure it's better than in the old days when 95% of games were pirated on some platforms.

What do you mean "still?" You thought they stopped? Piracy is more widespread now than ever.

Back in the 80s "everyone" had a ton of games, and hardly anyone had ever seen an original. I know piracy still exist, but I don't think it's that bad any more. I think most people today at least bought some of the games they got.

Piracy are much less common now if you take into account how many people own a gaming system now compared with the 80s.

And I didn't know it was easy to pirate console games. Maybe partly because I never really thought of it. But all consoles now use optical discs as media, pirating cartridges must have been much harder...

Compared the the total number of gamers, the number of them who have pirated games is obviously low. But the total number of pirated games at any point in the last five years outnumbers the amount in any previous year (excluding 2011, of course).

That's right. Statistics can be misleading, depending on the points of view.

In the last five years, I've bought two games. Fallout 3 and New Vegas.

I can't say the same. I've bought dozens of games. Never had a pirated game, but I have several pirated movies people gave me.

I rarely go out and buy a random game, anyway. Everything I buy is from a good developer and a series I'm familiar with. I took my chances with Fable, Assassin's Creed, and Mass Effect, and it payed off. Just Cause 2 and Borderlands? Meh.

Basically, I could have gotten all these games for free, and I wouldn't have lost anything on the bad games. But, I also wouldn't have been supporting the developers of the good games, and aside from Marijuana legalization, the gaming industry is one of the few things that I actually give a shit about.

*Sincere moment*

youve gotta mod your wii/ps3/360 to be able to play downloaded and burnt games. and with the 360 you cant go online with a modded xbox or your live account gets banned and you have to buy a new xbox

that said, i believe you can pull the disk drive out of the 360, mod it and then buy a replacement disk drive that HASNT been modified and then just switch between the drives depending on whether you want to play a burnt game or online

i havent actually seen it in action, but i hear you can do this

The only games I've ever pirated our on psp. I've never pirated a pc game even though it's the easiest to pirate. I just don't see the point. If you really like a game, you pay for it, it's just fair.

I wonder how they can detect if the xbox is modded or not. Shouldn't it be possible to mod it in a more clever and stealthy way?

How does this work out with PS3 and their network? Is it safer to do it with a PS3?

I agree of course, but kids don't see it our way. I think most pirates are minors.
