kill my reputation but here it goes. This is great, piracy is a cancer, developers need the money to keep making more games, consoles and whatnot. Competition is what really interests us as developers HAVE TO make good games or platforms in order to get our hard earned money.
Games are not that expensive and support is top-notch when you pay for your software or games, when i was a teenager I used to pirate a lot of stuff but that was because I didnt have the money to buy the software I was using or games. Now that Im in my productive age and earn money games and software seems cheap, at least games and software that I really want, I have to do my own research to make a good buy but it pays off when you play an awesome game or pay for a great APP.
Competition is the real deal and if developers make enough money games and platforms actually lower their price in an effort to compete so anyway if this is ever implemented is not the end of the world. Homebrew you say? well homebrew pretty much can be ran off a computer, I wished we had xbmc in the ps3 or 360 but I have it running on my computer thats hooked up to my TV so I really dont need that, 30 - 60 bucks each time a really good game comes out is not that bad. Some would say that is as much as 600 dlls in games in a year, but if this is your hobby and entertains you it really is cheap.
