in many countries the games are hacked or better"carcked".Especially in Middle East countries such as Iran.
I live in Iran.all the games are cracked and a DVD game such as Most Wanted ,Narnia , Devil May Cry 3,Microsoft flight simulator and enything else are never sold more than 3 dollars.
what is your opinion about this fact that you can do so?

I hate game piracy with a passion. Legit people are paying full prices for games they love and want to support, while idiots are burning games and ripping off the developers. This leads to higher game prices in the future to make up for lost revenue.

In other words, anyone that pirates games should be arrested and charged with theft of property.

Normally, I don't give a crap if people "acquire" illegal things; if they break the law and get punished, that's their fault, boo hoo *insert world's smallest violin here*. However, I agree with HM on game piracy. The game developers won't make games if people rip them off and don't buy them. I want to keep playing the games I love! And since I usually pay $40 to $50 on my favorite games, I think $3 for pirated games is denfinitely highway robbery.

One should not be surprised about this, since the country sadly seems determined not only to reject any sort of accomodation to the rest of the world, but also to fully participate in the global community of nations.

You have internet access. What is stopping you or any other in your country from ordering online?

:thumbsup:

Edit: My apologies. I did not consider if this option is available to those in your country.

hmm well in trinidad where im from. an original games costs $400+ that well out of the range of most kids and teens here. while pirated games can cost anywhere from $20 -$100. its pretty hard to not go with pirated games cuz if u want original here u have to ask your parents or wait till you can get the money for the game basically thats like 6 monhs after it is released

the main problem is that game prices in developing countries have the same price that in a first wolrd country, like USA, England or any other. So, the problem for us who live in third world countries is trying to pay this very high rates.
For example, a game that cost US $30 in USA, will cost double in Chile (where I am from) just because to get it there you have to pay taxes, shipping, etc. So beign able to afford those rates is rare, and doing it is kinda crazy. But I do hate piracy, because it means even higher rates because they're not getting income from their product.
