So.... there are discs coming out soon that have automatic firmware updates lets see how this will loggically pan out. (This being said in 3rd person to imply people in general will do this, not me nor anyone I know specifically)
-Sony's firmware V1.5 & V1.51 get hacked, emulators get in
-Sony adds automatic updates of firmware in UMD discs (you cant play till you update)
-People stop buying discs (but they still want them)
-Crack teams hack the UMD discs, dump the data and make them available online.
People wanting to keep emulators now are FORCED to download the UMD games and use the loader that will no doubt be figured out by then
-So now the people have everything they always wanted and Sony has made sure they cant make any money.
Question to the Sony employee that reads this.....
DID YOU EVEN THINK ABOUT THIS????
Sony is baisically encouraging the pirating of software.... This may actually really hurt the PSP.. WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!?!?! You have to understand there will always be SOME piracy. Its a premium, deal with it. Plenty of people are going to go the totally legit way, its just that now Sony is making people pirate stuff.....
