MIT Professor: Video Games, Piracy are Great Equalizers 200°
348w ago - MIT professor Henry Jenkins III has weighed in on the piracy problems that the media faces. He views piracy in two ways, firstly that it is the only way for developing markets to get access to materials and another that it is a rebellious way for consumers to battle against the high prices of original material.

It should be noted that the majority of those who pay for these copied discs are a very inexperienced...

Reeves: PSP Piracy Drives Hardware Sales, Sometimes 50°
362w ago - It's clear that piracy on the PSP is a problem. We know it, and so does Sony Computer Entertainment Europe head David Reeves. But it's not all bad, at least for Sony, as Reeves admits that piracy on the platform has driven hardware sales at times. On the whole, though, he isn't happy about it, obviously.

To quote: There is a piracy problem on PSP. We know about it, we know how it's done. It sometimes fuels the growth of hardware sales, but on balance we are not happy about it.

Following up to his previous statement, Reeves said that Sony will "unveil...

385w ago - At CES on Monday, a journalist got to speak to the head honcho of LionsGate and decided to ask him what made the company favor Blu-ray. He was expecting an example such as they thought it was the superior format, but he surprised him by saying that Blu-ray has tighter piracy controls.
