Correct i totally agree with you.This is also one of the points why a next gen Sony console maybe
could be released a few years later then normally.
From my experience in a 3rd world country where we import games and consoles from 1st world retail stores and online stores (in the millions, so yes we contribute to your sales figures) it does. it also does contribute in 1st world nations as some have commented on considering HB/backups in their purchases.
Your insistence on disagreeing is simply based on a misguided logic and the assumption that nothing beneficial comes out of piracy and homebrew. Even something as simple as wanting to backup your bought games or wanting to be able to have discs but still run your games off HDD with a hacked console can contribute to a decision to buy a console
Maybe you don't see that but its true. I could go as far as saying it helps game sales but that would be much harder to defend.
You plz from "ost europe" or like you from "3rd world" country are in a special case such ignorant and always talking about how dirt-poor your are.
I do not want to say that it isnt so but before i counter your post i well tell ya like i life:
I life in my owen store!Yes im independent.But i dont owen a shower or a washing machine.If i want to wash my body i have to go to a commercial bathroom.If i want to wash my clothes i have to went to a launderette.My appartment/store will cost 500€ per month without energy or gas.Also i then need something to eat and money as mentoined to wash my self and my clothes.And my NET provider also want to have money per month.But when i have a good month then i will have 800€ or so.There is no money for games or other private things.
Today my provider activated my previously cutted internet connection becouse i couldnt pay the last two months.
But i love my job. Im console modder
And to counter your post - You telling me things like:
Maybe you don't see that but its true.
Did you know that Nintendo and Sony in the past haved a joined project?Do you know that Nintendo and Sony developet the PS1 to gether?
Did you know that Nintendo in case that they cancelled the project with sony and developed the N64 got in havy troubles?
Did you know that Nintendo with the GC loosed such many ground that without the GB series they wouldnt be any more?
Could you imaging that Sony have the patent of producing CD´s,DVD´s and now BD´s?
Did you know that every one who want to produce blanks have to pay the license from Sony?
Do you know the SwapMagic Disk for PS2?
Could you imaging that Sony maybe knowed about this disk production?
Could it maybe be that this Disk comes from Sony?
Could it be that Sony need Nintendo in the scene?
Could it be that in case of the financial dissaster of Nintendo Sony leafe the HB marked for this gen to Nintendo?
Could you imaging that Nintendo knows about all this hacking but THEY WANT IT?
Why they block a normal older IOS like the IOS36-64-1049 but does not block the IOS249?
Why they remove the Trucha Bug from IOS´s but doent remove it from boot1 wich is the second file loaded by the Wii douring boot up and allow us in case of DONT removed Trucha Bug the execution of THE Trucha Bug via boot2 and this allows much more? (downgrading of system files)
Does Nintendo now have more money to develope a reall Next Gen console?
Could you maybe imaging that if Sony haved troped the PS3 to the release for 400€ that now the ps3 would be leader in the market without
