Thanks for validating the arrest of these guys, enkei, with your flagrant promotion of IP theft. Good job.

Its not just about IP theft, I have an Acekard 2i but i have never downloaded any games that i didn't own the originals for and i don't plan on it. Flash carts are great to have for 2 reasons, backups and accessibility, both of which are legal. I'd rather carry around 1 cart than 20+

I also have CFW on my PSP which allows me to backup all my own PSP games using a program called Filer. It also happens to allow me to backup my retro collection and play them on the go which is a nice bonus.

Are you sure you're Press?

I use my m3 to try before I buy. If I like it enough to finish it then I buy it. Really the problem is people who enjoy the games and steal them without a second thought.

Ironically enough, If I hadnt hacked my PSP last summer, I wouldnt be a current fan and owner of Persona, Ys and Valkryia Chronicles titles.

Are you saying you bought those games after playing them for free? If so then major kudos. People who enjoy games they pirate but don't subsequently buy them are among the wolds biggest douchebags IMO.

Qrphe2333d ago

I did, there were so many games I wanted to play but I couldn't afford at the moment. Of course, there were also games that I even regret downloading (at least I didn't buy them).

lol ppl like this is why companies like sony use proprietary memory & software just like sony & hike up the prices on it.. Sure eventually sm1 will find a way to hack it all but it takes longer
