    Why pay $60 for something in seven days when you can get it free today?

    Can't wait to PAY for the game. Well, I already did through preorders. This won't effect sales because everyone who downloads it illegally aren't hurting anything 'cause they weren't gonna buy it anyways, RIGHT? Ahh, good sleep allowing validation.

    Really though, if someone is scum enough to download it illegally and never plan to pay for it, it's not gonna matter if it pops up in the internet now or when it actually gets released. And pretty much every game finds its way online after release if anyone thinks it's worthwhile.

    You seemed surprised that people couldn't wait seven days...well...you're not thinking like a pirate.

    The only thing I find surprising about it is how somebody got a copy a week ahead of time to put on the internet.

    Ok, the whole pirate thing got me motivated, to make a demotivation pic. I shall pick up my copy of FFXIII from gamestop wearing my pirate gear, take a pic, and caption it "Pirating Video Games, You're doing it wrong!" Yeah, I am insane.

    But seriously, the first thing through my mind was, we have waited...how long now? And you couldn't wait a week!?!

    several ways.

    When a game is pressed, all it takes is for one single copy to go missing from the factory.

    Or ... like this:

    I'm surprised it wasn't pirated sooner.

    I see games on the sites prior to retail all the time.
    I guess this one is just newsworthy because its FF XIII.

    I don't know about systems, but Walmart has something in their computers that stops them from selling games early. You try to cash it out, but it won't even let you scan the game, it just comes up with "SALE NOT ALLOWED".

    In a system bundle like that though, it *might* have worked, but I doubt that's where he got it from.

    Remember when New Super Mario Bros wii got pirated a week before its release, and Nintendo eventually found the guy who uploaded it, sued him and eventually reached an out of court settlement of 1.5 million Dollar?

    Have you started playing the game? Any impressions. I know I might get slapped by some folks for saying this but I've actually been on the fence about FF13. I have been debating Star Ocean instead.

    I'm waiting for my Brother to get here in an hours time so we can play. He is the one I picked it up for.

    I'll let you know what we think. Star Ocean:TLH is good it just wasn't good enough for me to want to put time into it, the novelty wore off fast and its story wasn't overly gripping but saying that it was my first experience with Star Ocean.
