Doom 3 Sales Affected By Piracy - Not!

All the hooha about the pirate release of Doom 3 ruining sales proved to be just that - hooha. Doom 3 is top of the UK PC sales chart and, according to the beeb, based on sales to date is the 5th fastest selling PC game in the UK ever - despite being widely available over a week before release. So a lot of hot air generated over nothing then.

Hi guys. It's me. Anon. And therefore free from accusations of hypocrisy ;)

Is it not more true to say that Doom3 is a popular game and therefore has high sales AND high piracy.

I just don't see how you deduce that, in a format undeniably rife with piracy, a high selling game = not affected by piracy.
That's not logical. A good game = high sales AND high piracy.
