The Best Ways to Deter Game Piracy

Posted in Uncategorized by admin on Jul 23rd, 2011

Gaming piracy has skyrocketed in recent years, and the industry has begun to suffer. Games that take tens of thousands of dollars to make are being downloaded for free online and installed on ‘modded’ systems or played through the computer. The anti-piracy practices of the day are only as good as the people who enforce them. Those people are you. Keep your ears open for website where you hear that games are being downloaded and write them down. Then you can go to the the Entertainment Software Association’s website and provide them with the website. You may do this anonymously if you choose or submit an email address. You may also go to the gaming manufacturer’s website and send them the information directly. If you suspect you may have bought a hard copy of a pirated work, distinguishable by a low quality box or CD label, you may contact the same people where they will provide further instructions on how to proceed. Unfortunately, they will not be able to offer you a replacement for a possibly pirated game, but you can no doubt report the individual or establishment who committed the crime. Do this or your future gaming may suffer.
