If you buy a dvd, you should be entitled back up your investment should the dvd scratch or for some reason not work. Also it is more portable (though it might not seem so) to carry around an Xbox or a hard drive than tons of DVD cases. The DVD cases might be lighter, but a have a much greater chance to lose or damage it, with a hard drive, you have one thing, that is a backup of the original. The concept of "only for pirating" is part of the MPAA bullshit.

I also prefer the network access aspect of it. I can watch a DVD from any computer in the house without hunting for discs. I can play a game without changing discs, thanks to virtual drives with copy protection emulation. And I'm pretty sure the embedded Linux system I use as an mp3 player wouldn't work nearly as well if I had to get to it to change CDs (awkward location).
Sure, you could call it piracy. But I'm not sharing it with anyone, so where's the harm?

Hell, what could be more important than mod chips and copyright infringement? Illicit arms importation or drug deals? HAH!
