I admit I pirated The Wolf Among Us, but after seeing great it was. I am tempted to actually buy a copy albeit 2nd hand, just to show my support.
On the other hand, piracy has help me by letting me test the game. Prior to henkaku, I would have purchased Grim Fandango as it was on sale. It is now back to it's original pricing, I have played grim fandango via maidump and finished it, a friend of mine who pirates it too via Henkaku derided how buggy and unstable the game was. If not for piracy, I would have purchased a buggy game.
I know some people are elitist, even at our local 3ds group. When someone post a screen cap of Pokemon Sun / Moon they would say it was cia loaded, sure they call you for it but they are "jealous", I have to respect how people took the time to hack a system and is willing to share that knowledge.
The bottom line if the product is good people will end up buying the product.
