I think he means that if there is a freely available tetris clone
on the net (ie Cubis) then people would be less likely to order Edtris
because of it.  People's thinking would most likely be:

Why should I spend $16 on a game I've never played (ie Edtris) when I can
play Cubis for free?

Of course you would still receive orders from die-hard collectors who
strive to have as many different carts as possible.
