What pains me is they are punishing those who do by the products! DVDs all have that annoying "piracy is a crime" advert, plus more adverts you can't skip or fast-forward through before even the menu!

Console games are better and thats why I seem to be buying far more of them nowadays, the only games on PC i'm looking at is the mmorpgs.

I certainly agree. Again, it's the same for music and games - why should I pay to have a version of the song I want that I can't have on my MP3 player as well as my PC? Why should I pay to get my computer crippled with invisible software, when the pirate version of the game has no such restriction?

It's ridiculous - in this day and age, your products are BETTER when you get them illegally for free!

I'd disagree that "console games are better" - there are still a lot of good PC games being created, and I'll keep playing them - when they're DRM free. For example, I wouldn't have wanted to play Portal on X360 - it loves the mouse. But Steam at least is usually a sane DRM system - I can still have a copy of my games on every PC I want them on, and I can even lend them to my friends, and play them offline.
