selling backup games is lame
selling backup games is lame
I just heard that this was a result of a disagreement w/ one of his customers who reported him to the police.
Actually, I recall seeing it in SCEA's online store for at least a year. It only lasted in stock for about three months after they slashed the price in half, just before the FFXI HDD came out, which is when I got my Linux Kit.Quote:

I know a shop about 30 miles from me that will sell copys. He also uses really bad clone chips for installs. But I'm not for comfortable reporting him. but if any of ya want to know its GameZone in Lynnwood Washington. so if anyone from my state or area reads this site you might not want to shop there.
Your just as bad as the person who sells them !
Why are you any different just because you dont make a proffit, the point is every copy downloaded is $$$ Â£Â£Â£ removed from the creator of the " software "

BUT a law banning backups is just idiotic. I strongly believe in one thing - if it doesn't hurt anyone, you should have the right to do it! Stupid governments giving away to greedy companies makes me sick.
And besides, if they drop the prices they charge for their games then who needs a black market for their products. I'd rather have an original game then a copied one anyday!
That's not necessarily true. Someone may download a game simply based on its availability, even though they would have never bought it. But we digress. I think the real problem here is corporations going nuts with the laws on these things. How much longer before any form of recording at all is outlawed? or the coporations segregate technology so that consumer storage media is completely incompatible (ala PSP... although who knows how long that will last)Quote:

Who is really dumb enough to sell a backup anyways! Sony should take HD Loaders code and make it good so only original will work no matter what and they could sell it for 100$ make tons of money! Any rentals should have special code that only allows them on the HDD for 7 Days then deletes them :chinscrat
