From games, TV dhows to movies, the seems to have been a spike in the torrent sites again.

The industry is a big part to blame on this.

With all their pre order bonuses, tire list, special edition, pre planned DLC, always DRM online, season pass, MT and loot boxes....list can actually go on.

seems more and more are fed up with this, I myself barley have time to even join them, but I would do the same if I had time lol, seems internet is going a full circle, I myself sometimes crack the game I buy to remove the silly DRM, I fond it runs the game much better.

I didnt bother to pirate the recent Assasins Creed games.

It was not worth for free.

No, it's actually because instead of just one site for streaming movies and shows, they've now all taken their stuff off Netflix and opened their own streaming sites, so if you want to watch things, you need 5-6 different subscriptions at $7-$10 a month each.

Piracy and buying used, to punish is a ridiculous excuse.

Have you been watching Techquickie?

The problem is that studios have a good thing, then they take it for granted and get greedy. No doubt piracy has risen on PC too solely due to Epic too, though the other reasons you mentioned certainly play a part, especially the DRM.

Meh, this is why every game needs to be f2p with some way to monetize...

Theres a reason why mobile games is getting so much money and its not because of p2w, infact most gacha games are completely f2p for the first years worth of content.
^ After the first year, many mobage ramps up the difficulity but at the same time, if you've been playing a game for a year, you're expected to have some kind of investment in it and are more willing to pay for your entertainment.

BS. It's never been easier to buy games, and they've never been this affordable. Don't try and justify piracy as anything other than what it is: thieves not wanting to pay for stuff.

Ultimately, the GRB* will win over a bunch of software pirates in the end.

I like games. I play them. I have some. I keep them on a harddrive in my console. I'd like to have more of them. That's where PSN comes in.....
