Comment easy fix - buy the pirate versions (Score 1) 686

worried that your discs won't have longevity? easy - go and buy the pirate versions. as they say it won't be impossible to rip the discs, just awkward. this isn't going to stop the commercial pirates from doing their work.

Now lets have a look do i buy the £20 DVD with the fucked up error correction that might not survive when i drop it into my laminate floor and put a slight scratch on it, or a £10 DVD which is a pirate but doesn't have this wonderful protection system that screws me over because im sure as hell they won't be licensing the macrovision technology - and its half the price. Not a difficult choice.

oh and im intrigued - if pc players will have such a problem reading them, will they play in XBox and PS2?

What this country needs is a dime that will buy a good five-cent bagel.
