El oh el. We used to have pirated HARDWARE here, 1:1 copies of NES and Mega Drive systems were shipped from china and there also was a market for games.

I don't know much since I paid for the originals when it came to consoles even back in the day but I'm glad all my friends had access to technology that was aimed for their age. Now most of them live elsewhere, places with stronger economies, thanks to the fact that piracy penetrated a barrier for them back in the day. They would probably be local plumbers and shit otherwise.
