Hard to be constructive when you fail to acknowledge that a point you keep trying to make has been invalidated multiple times over the past year. But if you feel offended, I'm sorry. I'm just trying to help you get rid of your bad habits.

Ultimately, you end up with a much larger user-base, but an equivalent number of sales to what you could expect without piracy.
Source? For everything, please.

It's hard for me to take your "too poor" argument seriously when a pro-piracy pro-"too poor ;_;" user here has demonstrated that he's had enough money to buy videogames but would rather spent the whole $700 he had to be able to run the games he pirates. When you conquer temptation and master self-moderation I'll take your words seriously. Otherwise, just saying something isn't gonna make me believe it's true.

As for advertising "generated": most pirates don't want everyone to know they pirate games. So really, you only tell other pirates about the game. And they were more than likely going to download it anyway, especially if it is going to be a big game. So I think this point is null.
