(Moral Issues of Modchips) ISO PS2 Download Discussion Continued –
I don't think you had to close this topic, since now we are on the subject of what people are using modchips for, nothing illegal going on.
Mr. "Guchi", please don't speak to me like I an only an amateur in these forums, I was with the ps2modchips.com forum for quite a while and have been around the block, and the reason why I came here was after it was shut down was because it seemed the closest alternative to the forums.
Whether you agree with my opinions or not, that's ok, and I fully and whole-heartedly respect that. If you are using your modchip solely to play imports and backups of games, then I admire your respect to the game developers as well.
But I am also entitled to my opinion. The fact of the matter is I don't just "THINK" I know that most people use modchips to illegally play backups of games they own. I "KNOW" it for a fact. Why do you think Sony and Microsoft is so desperate to shut down these modchip sites? It's not because people are playing Jap imports on their US consoles, or vice versa, that's for certain. I doubt Sony is sitting around saying,"Oh No! They are backing up games they already PAID for!" Of couse not! They are attacking these companies legally because even though the products they are selling are intended to play imports, most people are not just using them for that. They are going around town burning everyone else's games, renting games and burning them from Blockbuster, stealing money from them, playing games that aren't rightfully theirs. And while I never said that it was right, and while I never said I liked the idea of burning ISO's of games that hard earned developers worked many long hours making, I am telling you that it happens. And I bet most people on this forum would agree with me, regardless.
Sorry for making such a long post, and I don't want to come off as rude and conceded, just sharing my ideas, I thought that's what a "forum" was all about, you all can think what you like. As they say,"I'm only a messenger." Thanks!
