Sony: Piracy Has Taken a Big Chunk of Game Sales from PSP

Sony: Piracy Has Taken a Big Chunk of Game Sales from PSP 300°
306w ago - Sony's Peter Dille has revealed that PSP sales have been severely affected by piracy. Dille noted that piracy is no good for anyone in the gaming industry, and the data from BitTorrent sites on how many copies are being illegally downloaded is 'sickening'.

To quote: It certainly makes business sense for Sony to switch to digital distribution, but one of the motivating factors for the new-found focus on digital distribution may be rampant piracy on the platform.

Peter Dille, senior vice president of marketing at Sony Computer Entertainment America, believes that PSP sales have been severely affected by pirates.

"It is criminal what's going on," Dille tells Gamasutra. "It's not good for us, but it's not good for the development community. We can look at data from BitTorrent sites from the day Resistance: Retribution goes on sale and see how many copies are being downloaded illegally, and it's frankly sickening. We are spending a lot of time talking about how we can deal with the problem."
