The vast majority of PSP owners in Europe and a pretty sizable chunk in NA did not pay for a single game on PSP. I know its fun to cry about stuff like this but at least put 10 seconds of thought into it.
LOL yes because the only reason there was piracy on the PSP was the memory cards. Why don't YOU think for a minute how ridiculous that sounds. It's never that simple when the issue is complex. It was a poor decision and it's costing this system in sales because the cost of the system is already high and I need to invest even more in memory when I own sticks for the PSP or other formats already.
The fact that Sony can't hire some of the actual hackers to show them the holes in their code is their own fault and should not be passed along as higher prices to the consumer if they are serious about the system getting off the ground running.
