    Sony: PSP Go Firmware Prevents Piracy, Unable to Rip Games

    Sponsored Links
    Sony's John Koller has stated that the PSP Go has new firmware which precludes piracy and won't allow anyone to rip games.

    He added that there is now no external battery either, which is part of the 'protections' for the system.

    To quote: "We've had a lot of success with the 3000," Koller says when I bring up the issue. While the earlier models of the PSP were incredibly easy to use with ripped or downloaded games, the PSP Go is going to make things tougher on the pirates.

    "You won't be able to rip your games and play them on the system, the firmware precludes that," Koller explained. "There's no external battery, so there's a number of protections put into place on the system."

    Although this is sure to protect the PSP Go, this may come of as one slight downfall for the PSP Go now. When that battery starts to wear down, that means sending that sexy device to sony for a couple of weeks with a fee.

    The ease in which games could be pirated on the original PSP is really what caused less developers to develop for the system, so since that has been fixed for now hopefully more developers will be interested in making games for the console.

    I always thought the system failed before piracy. Maybe the software developers couldnt get the margins they wanted but the hardware sales are something to boast about now. I thought the reason software wasnt doing well was because there were few quality games on the system even early in its life and it had to compete with gba and ds. Honestly I never heard anything good about the systems games (at least not much) in those times.

    This will be hacked unless its got security like the ps3. And an internal battery doesnt seem to prevent what an external battery might have been used for, you just open it up. if there has never been a psp mod chip they still have the option to use it if needed.

    What to do?

    I'm not the one to pirate games but I thought with the psp go I could get ripped games online that I already own. I had the original one and have all my UMD's. I have not heard anything from Sony what they are planning to do about the people that own a PSP, guess if have a psp now you might be out of luck until Sony announces something.

    If/when Geohot unlocks the PS3, won't the PSPGo be accessible through the PS3?

    Lolz

    You really think Geohot is gonna make it? I don't think so... Maybe he can contribute something but I don't think he will make it.

    To the guy 3 above: No the PSP Go does not have a UMD drive.
