Anyway, about the game prices, I had chanced upon a post written by a person deeply rooted into the game economics. He said that even if Sony was removed as a middleman, the prices wouldn't show much of a change since the audience in the games is not like other media (movies,etc.) .So the 20€ games is an utopia which is unlikely to come to life.
I appreciate your work and everyone else's but I just don't piracy hurts them, if that is indeed the intended effect. They lose money, sure, but the devs loose more. But yes, pirating PSN games can have its uses, no doubts.
