I can't imagine this working for long. It's easier for Sony to force a patch on people (to keep playing their games) than it is to develop a device that circumvents the system's anti-piracy measures. So even when someone does come up with something brilliant to make theft work for the many people who prefer not to pay for their games, Sony can produce a quick fix or essentially hold their system hostage.

Not that exciting. Just the latest move in the ongoing arms race between publishers and pirates.

They have. The 360 is constantly being updated through live patches to sidestep a lot of pirating issues. If MS even suspect you of pirating, you lose all access to XBL, as well.

Yup.

It's a big thing to give up lightly, though.

On the Xbox360 you can play any game you want, pirated, with the price being that you can't play online. Depends really if you are the online sort of person or like to play games alone.

This could, and will work for the PS3. Yes, Sony will fight and release various patches, but those will again be circumvented by the pirate community releasing patches for their patches for download to put on the said USB again destroying their patch. The price will again, probably be the online segment of the game, but people can live with that I would guess.

I've long spent money on games. I doubt I'll stop doing that any time soon.

I never got into the pirating scene for games. I enjoy having something physical in my hand too much. Somehow the experience is cheapened for me if I don't.
