So... I was over at a friends' house hanging out and my buddy got some funds onto his credit card so he could finally buy the ultimate songbird edition of Bioshock Infinite.... and he goes online and promptly discovers that the only version left is the 360 one. Here's the basic conversation that went between us:
Me: "Aw, that sucks dude."
My friend: "Yeah, but I really REALLY want that songbird statue... oh well, I'm getting it anyways"
"It's too bad you're going to have to play it on the 360 though."
"Nah, I'll just pirate the PC version"
"Woah... well... wait, you're not going to trade in or sell the 360 copy, are you?"
"Oh, no, I'll keep it even though I'll probably never even unwrap the thing."
And that was pretty much that. Now, understand that this guy does not regularly pirate games, I think he's got close to 200 games in his steam library, and for games that have intrusive DRM or a crappy publisher attached to them, he simply doesn't play those at all. So I guess my question is, is it wrong for him to be doing something like this? I know that it's certainly illegal.... but should it be?
