The question above, "Is Piracy Damaging the PSP and the Homebrew Scene?"
Lets cast our minds back before the first "UMD Loader" was released, we were enjoying masses of great releases on a daily basis, the japanese coders were ruling the roost and the homebrew scene was thriving then the first UMD Loaders came along and then sites that had posted homebrew were now posting these releases and some were even posting the downloads but to be fair all those sites gave the real homebrew scene a kick in the teeth.
I remember one newsposter saying in a newspost that Pro Evo was released and it worked on some loader, needless to say this was a newsposter on a rather big site who was saying its ok to warez.
Now Sony have forced PSP Wikis Loader offline (not the whole site that certain sites have reported wrongly), does this mean they will come after homebrew sites or just target those who blatently report on loaders and have the downloads and discussion in their forums.
Well i hope its the latter and then maybe the Real Homebrew scene can carry on and say good ridance to the piracy of new PSP titles.
In the quest for visitors some site ops take the easy road to get visitors whether they actually post the files or not but its better to stay legal than risk Jail and fines just to get a few visitors.
