I agree on that 100%
But this is in no case a good reason for piracy, while it might help computer/console sellers, it is still harmfull for the software developers who's games gets pirated, because these do not get a cent from what the computer sellers gain from it. You now could advance that but if more computers gets sold then there also are more people to buy software. That is probably true, but facts are that there are much less new people than pirated games, and most of these new people only come because of the "free" pirated games, only a fiew of them will buy non-pirated games.
