    (Holds up memory flag) If I can recall, you said that Nintendo, Sony, and EA vanished from that list of supporters.

    Said Companies removed themselves from the list, but are still members of the ESA. Epic seems truly against it, but I bet others only formally removed support as a PR stunt.

    Seeing as Epic lost something like 890,000 copies of gears 3 to pirates, it's pretty darn good of them to oppose this bill.

    They removed themselves from the one group of supports, but still support it, there just not going out of thier way to say so now they have spotted the public reaction, cant remember the exact details on this though.

    great to see this on a mainstream gaming site. of course the news won't cover things like this; we need to get as many people educated about this as we can

    It'd just make it worse. Contributing to piracy in protest hurts far more than it helps, not to even get into the moral/ethical issues that would still be present. (It's not the developers -- the ones investing years of their lives into making these titles -- that are supporting SOPA, it's their publishers.) It just gives the corporations that much more ammo to use in pushing their agendas. "See? It really IS that bad!"

    I like the whole noble thing, I agree, but isn't it just as damaging as not purchasing their games as a sign of protest? Because wouldn't low sales start making them cut developers and pay? unless under contract of course, then this is nullified. No matter what happens it's going to affect the developers. As innocent as they are, you can't expect people not to boycott or do anything to them just because of developers and others. It's apart of the job description. When people do anything to hurt the top brass or stockholders of a company, they take it out of the lower ranks pay and begin firing. It sucks, but it's how it works. This of course only pertains to "combating" a company. I totally agree with not pirating one-hundred percent, because it never helps, but morally its not the best logic.
