Quantum break... So w8, you pirate the game and are rewarded with a character looking more badass? Nice.

I think the lesson that everyone can learn from this is only pirate games from EA Ubisoft and Activision

I think the Quantum Break thing would make someone want to pirate the game even more. It's like an exclusive item you can only get by pirating!

How funny would it be if you pirate PaRappa the Rapper 3, all the characters have diverse accents:

PaRappa: German accent
PJ Berri: Russian accent
Sunny Funny: Italian accent (Male voice)
Katy Kat: Chinese accent
Lammy: Australian accent
Sweetie Bancha: Russian accent
Pinto: German accent

Plus, when you complete the game and get to the end of the credits, there will be three different after-credit cutscenes depending on your save file:

Save file 1: PJ telling you how much of a cheapskate you are, saying that the game only costed $40.
Save file 2: Sunny Funny telling you that you're smart enough to copy the game onto your console, but dumb enough to not actually buy the game from the store.
Save file 3: PaRappa telling you that you really screwed up now and that he wouldn't have that annoying accent if you didn't pirate the game.

And two weeks later the game is cracked and all of these "creative ways" are rendered moot.

Companies should go back to releasing Demo/Trial versions of the game to see if people like the game or not. it would eliminate a lot of pirated games
