The opposite of what happened to the PSP?

Less widespread hacking which lead to low games sales due to everyone pirating the games off the internet which = less games being imported overall?

And how would you know that? Right, the point is that you wouldn't -_-

And third world countries are SOO important to the Vita's success as a whole, right?

It doesn't really, except it prevents piracy which is a good thing overall.

I just thought the article was interesting and might help inform Vita owners about the natures of hacking, as most on this board seem woefully ignorant.

Vita isn't difficult to hack at all. The reason that no well-respected hacker cares to spend 1 or 2 hours of their life in hacking the system is there is no worthy games for them to play on it.

In the hackers' defense (lol), none of the big name hackers have really given the thing a serious go.
