Reeves: PSP Piracy Drives Hardware Sales, Sometimes
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 new ways to combat piracy soon."
Sounds good, but it may be just talk with little action resulting, taking their previous efforts into account. Time will tell...
