We will purchase games as we can, but am I really supposed to hand over a system to two kids with only wii sports and wii sports resort? He is also going to sell me some used games, and provide me backups of games that we cannot afford right now, but plan to purchase from him as our financial position allows us to.
    I understand what it looks like, but a rule is a rule. I'm only 17 years old, I have to save up money for my drivers license, but I also purchase all my games if I can, and most of the time I can't.
    If I can't afford it, I just wait until I can.

    Okay. Glad to hear that. You should really watch out with the way you tell us something, because it can easily be misunderstood.

    I'd rather spend $150 on a hard drive to hold who knows how many games, than to purchase 3 games for that same $150.
    This really sounds like you are planning to pirate all the games. Just to make you understand how easy it is to misunderstand you.

    Be assured, I'm not now nor have I ever been a thief! I understand that you lack experience in life compared to myself. You're a young, 17 year old person. Your biggest concerns include school, dating, getting your driver's lisence, college etc. I, on the other hand have more pressing priorities including 2 children, keeping a roof over their heads, food in their stomachs, making sure they have supplies and clothing for school, paying utilities etc. I am responsible for more than just my own life, I am responsible for 2 other lives as well. So where you may think that buying a game system, a game or a hard drive is not a huge deal, to someone in a position like mine, it is a huge undertaking when so many other things take priority.

    Believe me I understand where you are coming from. I have two little one myself. That being said, your post did sound as if you were interested in piracy and I am glad to hear it was just a misunderstanding. We get a lot of pirates around here and sometimes we mistake people like you for people like them and for that I apologize. Just to be sure that this doesn't happen again, you should better explain your intentions in future post.

    He is trying to help you, don't be a jerk to him. We do not help pirates, and your post made you look (or maybe sound?) like one. We deal with pirates all day, and it gets hard to give people the benefit of the doubt.

    We help you because we choose to. Nobody here gets paid. If you want help, I suggest you learn to be more humble, instead of talking about how easy our lives are compared to yours.

    Ok, this thread has gone way out west somewhere. I respect all of your opinions and helpfullness, but we have reached the point that the conversation is no longer a constructive one.
