Fable III Dev: Used Game Sales More Costly Than Piracy

Dalzhim Re:Conclusion is misleading (342 comments)

Meh, I already see more inaccuracy in what I just said.
Here's one more try:

The potential for increasing profits is higher by eliminating used game sales as opposed to eliminating piracy according to a Fable III Dev.

Fable III Dev: Used Game Sales More Costly Than Piracy

Dalzhim Re:Conclusion is misleading (342 comments)

You are right.
Maybe we could rephrase it that way then?

The amount of used game sales has become larger than the amount of pirated copies.

Fable III Dev: Used Game Sales More Costly Than Piracy

Dalzhim Conclusion is misleading (342 comments)

The conclusion seems misleading.

Misleading conclusion:
Buying a used game doesn't hurt more than pirating the game.

More accurate conclusion:
Companies lose more money to used game sales than to piracy.

Gamer Banned From Dragon Age II Over Forum Post

Dalzhim Re:That was stupid of him (469 comments)

Why not? It is customer feedback after all. It is basically saying: I like your company, but I dislike that other company. Please do not do business with them. :(

Apple: You Must Be 17+ To Use Opera

Dalzhim Re:FUD? (315 comments)

You presume that the parents are those buying the product. But I believe any 15 years old with the bucks to spare can go into a shop and get out with an iOS enabled device and expose himself with safari without his parents having a chance to monitor anything at all.

So because the iOS device itself isn't considered 17+ the parental controls available in the OS aren't an excuse for Safari avoiding this "warning".

Apple: You Must Be 17+ To Use Opera

Dalzhim Re:FUD? (315 comments)

Why then don't I need to be 17 to get myself an iPod and use Safari which presents the same exact risks?

Stargate Universe Cancelled

Dalzhim Re:Effing SyFy (762 comments)

Totally agree. At first I didn't like Stargate SG-1's cancellation. The problem wasn't with the cast but with the amount of "filler episodes". Then Dr McKay made StarGate Atlantis actually be a nice series and it got cancelled too... I mean c'mon. I like stargate's universe. Why cancel all of them?

Graduate Students Being Warned Away From Leaked Cables

Your quoting makes it look like he is threatening his own self. Which could be true unless he is not a senator or congressman.

Jailtime For Jailbreaking

Dalzhim Re:Not really jailbreaking (281 comments)

If I am allowed to sell structures I built out of legos, why wouldn't I be allowed to re-sell phones I have modified? This is absurd. If the profit I try to make on the original phone is too high, then I won't sell any. Besides, for each phone I sell, apple still gets their sale too.

Pirate Party's North American Debut

Dalzhim Re:Yeah, right. (178 comments)

Let's say you draw a circle inside a square. I look at your drawing, and then I draw a circle inside a square as well. You pretend I've taken your idea and it wasn't mine in the first place. I reply that you've taken my freedom to come up with this idea in the first place and this freedom wasn't yours. You called me a pirate, I call you a pirate too. You say that act was theft? I am saying you've thieved first.
