    Well, because it's so easy, that's why it ruins sales. Too bad, deal with it, it happens to every system. I don't think the PSP would've done better without the piracy because of lack of smash hits

    They make the mistake of assuming each of those downloads would be a sale if it wasn't freely available online. Personally, I download a game because I'm not interested enough in it to warrant a purchase. If it wasn't available online, I still wouldn't be buying it. Great games get my money, the rest get pirated or ignored.

    I imagine I'm not the only one.

    So how come piracy is not ruining/affecting the booming sales of DS? Its not like the DS hasn't been hacked wide open is it?

    Its BS, problem is that 90% of PSP games are utter crap.

    What they don't understand is that the majority of PSP users don't have CFW or even know about it. They just bought a PSP and they buy games. Same with DS.

    I think they assume that if for some magical reason, downloading no longer existed, those people who download it for free would buy it. Most games for the PSP aren't worth a shit. I got the PSP because I read that you could get the games free. The PSP is the poor man's console, you plop down 169.99 for the psp, maybe 40 or 50 bucks for a memory stick, and all the free downloads your little heart desires.
