I really don't buy the piracy argument, piracy is basically nonexistent on the PS3 and Wii and modding an Xbox is not as simple as running a pirated PC game where all you need is a cracked EXE.
Of course I never play online as most (nobody here I'm sure
) online gamers seem to be jackasses so this won't effect me at all.
