How the PlayStation 3 Reformed a Pirate

The somewhat long (but allegedly worth reading) tale of how a humble, rickety PS3 fat taught me about my responsibility toward the gaming community, and radically changed my outlook on piracy for the better.

The Piracy in the Phillipines is mind boggling. Even the malls there sell pirated games.

It was on CNN when they busted a lot of pirated goods and fake merchandise. Truckloads of stuff were taken. But that was a year or so ago.

The Philippines is good when it comes to pirated stuff but China is better.

I can go to the main electronics area and walk right up to over 50 shops and have an xbox 360, wii, psp, or nds setup to play pirated games. (I know psp and nds doesn't require hardware modding, just custom firmware, or a cartridge.

And they always have giant folders (one for each system) set right up on the counter of all the pirated games they sell. Just take a pick.

Oh and just to say, you can buy a DVD here for around $0.57 (the lowest I have seen in Shanghai, 4 RMB each).
