    Default Dark Alex is killing the PSP

    Hello everyone
    now before i get flamed and crapped on for the title of this thread.
    I better explain myself.

    Have a look at the game releases for the entire next year on IGN.
    There is about 20 games coming out for the entire year between now and this time next year.

    Developers are not making games for the psp anymore simply because we can just download it and play it. the game sizes are all too small and easily attainable.

    I LOVE DARK ALEX. for giving us the MUCH more usable PSP in the form of homebrew apps and emulators. The M33 firmware is great and has opened up MANY doors on the PSP, but IT IS killing the PSP.

    This is one guy thats doing all this. Why doesnt SONY just hire the guy?
    I am sure if he got paid lets say $200k a year he would be happy to work for SONY and help them make a more usable PSP without killing it.

    The PSP is by far SONY's best product and it could be so much more. I just dont want it to die a premature death because of game piracy.

    Yes i download games, but I also buy the game if it's good. if it's not i delete it.
    Why cant SONY do this? release every game as a demo and then if you like it you buy it.
    PSP GAMES ARE DIRT CHEAP. There isnt a reason why this is hapenning.

    Anywayz I know alot of you will be saying FUK OFF. but it's true.

    It's not his fault...

    Who's fault is it:

    -The people who upload games for us?
    -Or us who download them?

    It happens with almost every system.... It can't be helped.

    Actually there is a flip side. I, as well as others I'm sure, only bought the PSP because it could be hacked with custom firmware for free games. No ones losing money from me because if there was no OFW, I would never buy any of it. They got $200 more than not.

    we are not talking about the PS3. only the PSP.
    And buying a PSP only SONY makes money.
    not buying games = Developers losing money which means they wont make more.

    Sony and Developers are 2 different things.

    i think
    only a handful of psp user use CFW out of the over 10mill psp that have been sold (that just in japan)

    there alot more OFW psp then CFW PSP

    PSP 1.5 got on USA first day is was 1.5 NOW 4.01 M33-2 -> 5.00 M33-6(1.50 addon),
    Old PS3s: PS3 60GB FW:3.41(2nd ps3 YLoD, 1st, YLoD)
    New PS3:
    Slim 160gb 01-21-2011 Working
    was 3.40 OFW->3.60 OFW

    2nd PSP : PHAT 5.50 GEN-D2
    3rd PSP : Sliver 3000 Starting OFW:4.20 (NEW bought NEW on 11/28/2010)
    It a good idea to have "Hide extensions for known file types" in Folder Options(under Tool) unchecked (turn on extensions)

    Sony makes money from selling devkits (30 grand a peice not they buy alot of these), they make money off game licenses, they make money off every umd sold. They control every aspect of the game production after the developer is finished coding it. SCE also designes their own games in house or contracts them and they make money of the royalties for their games as well.

    Sony is also dependant on game sales, no game sales, no devs will invest, no game consoles to sell if their no games to play. Look at the big picture.
