First: Maybe you don't remember what Fileplanet was like before, when it was all free. It was an awful mess, with waits for like half a day.Uhh... Bittorrent... or anything else that can download that isn't FP? From the looks of it, he can save precious hours downloading the demos when they're released by downloading them beforehand. There's no way that's worth $40 per year. It's fine if you have nothing better to be doing than sitting and waiting for demos to be unlocked, but otherwise, it's utterly pointless.
The worst part is that the more people pay for small services like this, the more and more we, as gamers, are going to be expected to shell out for little things that cost nothing. FP has people paying them to reduce the stress on their servers when big demos come out by spreading out the load.
They're owned by FOX. I'm sure they can handle it.But you're probably right, I bet maintaining thousands of terabytes of information's worth of servers, 24 hours a day 7 days a week, while keeping their website constantly updated with news and new information on upcoming demos and mods almost every other day...probably doesn't cost a dime and is in fact really easily maintained for free.
Yes, yes it is.Zeonix said:Filefront, well thats just the ****.
Torrent is legal. Even tough you can use it to download illegal software. Even Microsoft (or was it Linux?) were planning to insert build-in bittorrent client in their newest version Windows (Or Linux).Mogwai said:...the direct to drive system which is kind of like torrent cept it is legal.
