Piracy kills video game companies not the PSP.

PSP actually sells a little more because of piracy.

PSP will die a natural death. Though piracy significantly lowered software sales.

It might be more the matter that piracy on the DS requires additional hardware, whereas with PSP you can basically try it all on your own.

This, also the DS still had a far larger install base so even if there where pirates it had a lesser impact.

piracy on the ds only requires a ds flashcart (which is the same thing as a normal DS gamecart except it runs homebrew software), and a micro sd memory stick...

THAT's it...

However, with a PSP you're messing with the firmware. Unless you're using a PSP 1000, that can brick your PSP permanently.

Its so much easier on the DS...

Actually no its not, all you do is copy and paste and in one minute you have cfw. Installing lcfw is safer than updating ofw.

It's actually much easier on the PSP. Back in the day it was risky and took a lot of work, now anyone can upload 2 files on their PSP and BAM! Instant CFW.
