Let’s see how long before Rollin takes this down.

Ryan Sumo, former (well actually current-but-lazy) Asian editor of Intendo and lover of all things rice-based, has created some ripples on the Escapist with an article dealing with piracy in the 3rd world. Since we’ve already established that I’m a lazy motherfucker, here’s some flavor text from Gamepolitics:

In a novel, if certainly controversial suggestion, Filipino game design artist Ryan Sumo argues that video game companies should compete with bootleg sellers in poorer countries by selling products with minimalist packaging and even allowing the pirates to burn the actual discs.

Sumo makes his argument in a guest column for The Escapist
