Proof is in the pudding. People ask "Why did they wait so long?" and I think I know why. It wasn't until the system was hacked that LG themselves could look inside the system and see the software the bd drive used. That's why Sony was trying to get anything related to the hacks off of the net; not because of piracy but because anybody can look in the system imo.
And the price of future games won't go up; they'll just tag them all with activation codes. If you bootlegged the game, you'll go to the ps store to purchase a license. Hell, they could put licenses for sale in gamestop in the used game section. That would be the smartest thing for them to do but Sony isn't using their collective brain. I haven't seen anybody complain about that method of piracy control yet.
The whole "cheating only exists online because of cfw" crap is a flak shield. As long as a game has bugs and exploits, cheating will still happen; period. They can fool all of those new gamers like that but not me. Been online gaming with PS since the Network Adapter.
