Afterburner Climax being delisted

[QUOTE=Oltobaz]Exactly. A gift. Something you're never under any obligation at any given time, as far as the law is concerned. A game I "could steal". LOL. I bought the game when it came out, about. Still, I suppose anybody could pick it up with the proper know how. You could. I encourage you pick i...

Afterburner Climax being delisted

Woah, wait a minute. <br /><br />I am not talking about imports here. I am talking about illegally downloading a rom of the game and playing it that way. I was very clear on that and OBVIOUSLY that was and is lost sales. Many did not 'wait' for localization, because they made themselves a victim, in...

We're talking about a game no longer available for purchase, pretty much an abandonware. No one care what people will do from there, not even the creators. Why should they? The product d...

Afterburner Climax being delisted

There are really no 'gray areas' here though.<br /><br />Games are a commercial product that have a shelf life. If game makers are truly so interested and supportive of freeware, could they not easily make their own game available to be stolen? Why do you have to do that for them, and then claim the...

Afterburner Climax being delisted

[QUOTE=ptdebate]A sound argument, but only if you ignore the fact that I was talking about pre-owned sales, not new sales.[/QUOTE]<br /><br />I am not ignoring that fact.<br /><br />Nintendo had the first sale.<br />First buyer then has potential second sale income<br />And so on.<br /><br />Pirate ...

Afterburner Climax being delisted

[QUOTE=ptdebate]Just a reminder, SegaT-- Buying the pre-owned copy of a game is no different than pirating it in the sense that the creator gets no money for it. Food for thought.[/QUOTE]<br /><br />Well this is not a well thought out argument, because Nintendo had the first sale in your example: <b...

[QUOTE=Edward][QUOTE=Segatarious][QUOTE=ptdebate]Sega,<br /><br />I don't understand what would be wrong with piracy in this circumstance. Once the game is delisted, there's no longer a way to pay for it. Could you please elaborate?[/QUOTE]<br /><br />It is very simple. You are stealing.<br /><br />...
