Sony: Piracy Has Affected The PS3 ‘To An Extent’

Posted By | On 05th, Jul. 2011 Under News | Follow This Author @GamingBoltTweet


Piracy has been affecting video games for a long time. It’s a no brainer that piracy is more rampant in Asia compared to the West.

In an interesting interview with IndianVideoGamer, Atindriya Bose,Country manager, Sony Computer Entertainment India had admitted that piracy has affected the PlayStation 3 in India.

It has to an extent, but it’s not nearly as bad as it is on PS2. We’ve actually done surveys on this. A lot of people are aware of the ability to pirate, but they’re also aware of what they would potentially lose by going that route. You miss out on the online, connected experience, as well as the benefits of new firmware. There is a segment of gamers who have gone the piracy route, and while it hasn’t significantly impacted the sales of PS3 games, it has lowered the rate of the growth we’ve been seeing.

So all those people who buy pirated games, here is a bit of an advice. Always buy original games and show support for the developers/publishers if you want to get an Uncharted experience every year.

Between if you are a gamer who belongs from India (as I do :D), you should really check out that interview. Its pretty damn awesome and a lot of information about Uncharted 3 collectors edition, PS Vita and other PlayStation stuff  has been revealed. Check the full interview over here.

    Sony is right on this fact piracy is bad for all of us, I personally don’t steal things so I would not want to be one of the people who do piracy but the number of people online steal things all the time I believe so this is one thing I could be watching out for.

    Sony needs to be better at stopping this piracy so people will not be able to do it anymore.

  • Not all people have money to spent on retail games anymore.If you have to give away 70 euros to buy a new game while others downloading it for free isnt it kinda weird?Also about the online part etc isnt a big deal on some games.Also every “human” should watch their own benefit and then the game industry,also if you are a gamer you cant wait 5-6 months for the price to drop or buy it used.
