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


Sponsored Links
273w ago - 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.

Not sure I follow...

First off, the PSPgo has no UMD capability at all, no disk tray. How then are they using blocks in the firmware to prevent the PSPgo from ripping games when its physically imposible already?

I think that as soon as the slim is released along with whatever firmware, it will be cracked. It may be tougher, but I'm sure it will be done.
