Massive Dev Says PS3 Might Be Looking at More Piracy than the PSP

Martin Walfisz, co-founder of Massive Entertainment (Ubisoft Massive)*, tells GI.biz the anti-piracy outlook for the PS3 is far from rosy and that, well, it might end up being so bad that it makes PSP piracy look like not big deal.

This, of course, comes in the way of the hacked PS3 root key, which allows folks to play pirated games on an unmodded Playstation 3.

“If that hack works as reported, I don’t believe that Sony can regain any control,” he said.

He goes further: “I would assume that pirated copies can be stored on the HDD as well, making it so easy to use that PS3 piracy, given time, might even surpass the handhelds.”

Walfisz has much more to say about this subject, including speculation that future consoles will require you to be online at all times to play a game (not happening soon). Check it out.
