I hope it does make pirating impossible or more difficult to do. Piracy killed psp support with several third party studio's.

nothing is impossible in Tech, but at least they can stop it from being as simple as with the PSP, all what was needed was connecting to PC via USB and then copy paste, it is so simple a 6 year old can do it.

that's it.
Make it harder for pirates without bothering legit owners a la DRM.

Believe it or not, most reason for piracy besides having it for free is convenient.
If pirating was so hard then a lot of pirates would rather buy the game instead of the headache.

That's why piracy excels in PC's market because it so easy and you can do it from the PC itself.

That's a good news for the Vita. I hope pirates never cracks it so that we get more Vita support from devs.
