My father (to my shame) pirates the hell out of things on PC. He's in his 70s. He pirates, movies, music, software and operating systems. I don't think he's paid for anything in over a decade.
I personally wouldn't have a clue how to pirate something off a console without doing some major acrobatics. Pirating software of any stripe off of a PC is as hard to do as a google search.
I mean like someone said earlier in this thread. You can park your car in a garage and yes, it just might get broken into or even stolen. Or you can park your car in the worst neighborhood you can think of with the windows down and the key in the ignition. Your choice.
