Lets Talk About Piracy

5

Its been almost 15 hours (from the time i post this) that 'Hitman Absolution' is out on torrents for the Xbox 360. Yes you heard it right. Xbox 360. Now we all know almost every developer blames piracy as the reason for not releasing AAA games/delaying the release (cough assassins creed 3 cough, GTA4/5 and many more) on the PC.

Almost every game which leaks on the torrents is the Xbox 360 version which leaks first. Then PS3. Then the PC version (if a game is releasing on all 3 platforms on the same date like Hitman Absolution)

Is the piracy thing blown out of proportion for the PC? What do you think?
