In today's bootleg edition of Speak Up on Kotaku, commenter Mellowguy wants to know if downloading an illegal copy of a PC game is okay if you already own the console version. What's your take?
The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim comes out in only about five weeks now. I'm getting it for the 360- my computer is great but I don't want to have to worry about balancing the graphics with frames per second. However, I was thinking of downloading Skyrim illicitly after I buy my 360 copy. My reasoning is so: I bought the game — what could be wrong with playing my game on a different system? It's just like playing Skyrim on a different 360, except that it's my computer.
So I suppose what I'm wondering is, does anyone else use this reasoning? Am I actually stealing the game because I'm only allowed to use the version I purchased?
