I remember everyone i knew had like 100 games, non of them paid for. What do you think? I never owned one but i remember it the Amiga folding.
Was this the biggest casualty of Piracy
"No, the dreamcast was. The dreamcast was the easy victom of piracy since it was released during a time when more people had the internet, and a simple disc swap made it so you can play all the game you wanted."Yea piracy killed the dreamcast because you didn't need a mod chip or any kind of modification and CD burners were becoming common. At the end of the dreamcast's life cycle they released a new version that couldn't read CD's but it was too late by that point.
Hard to answer.
But presumably piracy didn't harm Commodore itself, because nobody pirated the actual machine, which was what they sold. You could argue that they sold a lot more units because of piracy, rather than the opposite.
It was a very successful computer, it seems to me. Only died out when PCs clearly started to beat it in terms of technology. Possibly killed by the CD drive alone.
