I would just like to apologize to these farmers. Every time I bought a game or a movie, I made things worse for them (and myself).
Today I read about a guy who got a used PS4 with a non-functional optical drive. Surely he can just hop over to Ebay and get a new one from some salvaged gear, right? Nope! The BD drive must be paired with the specific mainboard in the system, so you can't just stick in a different one and expect it to work like any reasonable person would.
The more we support large companies, the worse this shit will continue to get.
