Not to be argumentative (and this will be my last say on it), but how is it not?
1-Someone gets a game from a "friend" plays it (for free) with no additional payments going towards the company who created it (and those in between)..
2-Download the same Game..(torrent) to play for free.. with no additional payments going towards the company who created it (and those in between)..
Either way, people get to play the game without pay for it.
Oh and if you are going to say.. the original person paid for it so they can lend it out..
Same goes for Torrents.. someone, someplace bought the game, and put it up for download to "share" it.
Its just in the first way, your friend does not have to wast bandwidth.
it comes down to in MS's view (and the views of the companies who makes these games), not mine.
