PSP piracy is "trending down", says Sony

Not as prevalent these days, apparently.

Sony Computer Entertainment America exec John Koller has said PSP piracy is "trending down" these days.

"We've made really no secret [that there] certainly has been some piracy on the PSP," he told MTV multiplayer. "It's trending down right now, we've seen the piracy not be as prevalent in the last month to two months."

Although videogame piracy is of course inherently bad and wrong and should probably be a hanging offence, there are still those who persist. Koller has observed there are also people ready to dole out the nooses, however.

"We've noticed there’s kind of a 'good vs. evil' battle that we track on many of the forums and many of the pirated web sites," he chuckled.

"There's certainly people that are standing up and fighting for what we consider the good side, the rights of developers and publishers to make money on their IP. And then there’s certainly the other side that believes that they can take as warranted.

"It’s kind of been nice to see other consumers going and help and fight the battle for us," added Koller.
