Just curious, I refuse to support the gray market...since it is as bad as piracy while you still pay money.

Just buy from the source if you are so worried about it. Grey market sites don't want your business anyway. Hint: they are not as bad as piracy.

Literally the dumbest thing I've read today.
When they ask how I died, tell them: still angry.

When it's legit, it's fine. When it's not...he's correct.
It's just the blanket statement that *all* of it is worst-case-scenario that's wrong.

Still not as bad a piracy any way you look at it.

Bingo. Claiming legitimate 3rd party sales are in any way bad is extremely anti-consumer, as is the notion publishers should be allowed to double dip. Fraudulent sales are another matter entirely.

It is because developers don't get money from grey market games...developers themselves they rather have you pirating the games than giving money to people who got the codes from dobious sources
