Games The rumour mill for the next generation of video game consoles has been churning out some juicy stuff these past few months. While Nintendo has laid most of its cards out on the table, Microsoft and Sony have remained tight-lipped, probably because their consoles are still seeing increased sales. So, we have to rely on rumours, and those rumours have one thing in common: Microsoft and Sony want to eliminate the used games market.

Hi guys, I'm the author of iFishing and I posted the piracy information to my twitter account.

The stats are based on how much download data is being used on Amazon S3 for hosting the media files used by the game. According to them I am using roughly 3.3 TB of data per month (3460300 mb). The media files for one person to download is 20 mb. Divide the bandwidth by 20 mb to get the number of people downloading the full set of data, which is 173015. Now I only get about 2000 people who buy the game per month. These numbers are approximate but it is obvious there is a lot of piracy going on.

There are a lot of Android sites and illegal markets that are distributing my game without my permission. The only place it should be available is on the Google Play market and Amazon.
