Famed Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter isn’t a fan of controversial on-disc downloadable content, claiming it’s nothing but profit greed. Pachter even when as far to say that gamers are entitled to hack the disc to retrieve the downloadable content that should have shipped with the retail copy.
“The stuff on the disc, some gamers feel entitled to because they bought the disc, so they should have a right to anything that’s on the disc,” he said. “And that’s a dicey one, you actually do own the disc and I think, theoretically, if you could crack the code on the DLC you probably would be allowed to access it without paying. And I’m not even sure that’s stealing because you did, in fact, buy the disc. That’s about as close as you can get to legal piracy.”
