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.
