Is exploiting a pricing error makes me a thief ?

I got Dirt Rally, a $60 game for 0.99Cents from NewEgg.
>>
no it makes you a jew

Enjoy your eventual ban, poorfag

Depends on your country's law
where im from its the store's full responsibility to make sure the price is right and they are obligated to sell the article at the price shown when the consumer purchased the article
>>
>>323018513
No, but if you're the kind of person who refuses to pirate games not for fear of the law but for ethical purposes, then it makes you a massive hypocrite.
>>
>>323020275
I don't pirate games because i don't get the motive to play them, not that i play the games i own on steam..
>>
>>323018513
yes
>>
>>323018513
No.
It's on the retailer if they fuck up their pricing.

>They left their door open
>that means its okay to steal their TV and shit

This is you.
>>
>>323018513
No, the store is at fault and only have itself to blame.
>>
>>323020868
Except when you steal the TV you leave a small loan of 5 dollars.
>>
>>323018513
That's the risk you run by selling your game digitally. If you wanted to avoid that you'd made physical media.

>>323020868
By buying on their site you agree to their terms and conditions. So you have an agreement with them to buy it for the listed price.
When you steal someones TV and shit you don't make an agreement with them first.
>>
>>323020868
But that is more than just opportunity, that involves trespassing and is a shitty analogy,

Buying something that has been improperly priced is nothing like stealing because of the service-customer relationship. They are there to serve you at the cost of craving your dollar. If they make a mistake, they risk losing a customer and their dollar, so letting customers win when the retailer screws up generates good faith that should ensure future business.

>Ahmed buys a Hotdog cart from 1984 that still has a sign saying only 0.99cents for a hotdog
>Get the Hotdog, pay ahmed 0.99cents
>He complains that's not the price, even thought he never mentioned hotdogs are 2dollars now
>>
>>323018513
No

When steam has pricing errors you can legit buy the game, it's their fault.

I did it with Dishonored GOTY, when first released it was $4.99 for a short while.
>>
>>323021189
Its not tresspassing unless there is a sign that says "no tresspassing or private property'
yes,US law is that retarded and assbackwards.

If the door was locked it would be breaking and entering, which IS illegal.

I bought Incredible Tales of Van Helsing 3, even though it has a bad metascore, just so I could get the Final Cut of every 3 games for free.
Then I just got a refund for VH3.
>>
>>323018513
Hmm, I got it on KAT for $0. Weird.
>>
How, OP?

I thought it had to be bundled with certain GPUs.

Then he blows himself up, destroying the cart and littering the city with hotdogs and gibs.

I'm glad someone actually looked at the image.

>>323021202
>ahmed buys a hotdog
pretty sure that's haraam and ahmed decides to go shoot a dozen eurocucks instead
>>
>>323021607
No, it really isn't.
I see that I'm dealing with an idiot.

Firstly, in your example. Unless there is a sign saying that everything inside free, then that is clearly theft as there is no transaction made.

As for the example in the OP, it's on the retailer to notice their error in pricing up until the moment that the transaction is completed. If they do, they reserve the right to refuse to sell at the listed price and can offer to sell you the item at their intended price. If the transaction is completed however, (which is the case for the OP) then they are shit out of luck.

There was no pricing error. When you buy an AMD product from Newegg you can get a code to get the game for $0.99.

OP just wanted to bait people.
