PSP Store held up by DRM - Sony trying to protect against movie piracy

Recommended Posts

Sony has refused to set a solid launch date for the official PSP download store. The store will play host to 'short form' games as well as movies and music. However, it is rumored that there is a hold-up in launching the platform as Sony are trying to find the best way to protect against the possibility content on the store becoming pirated.

I don't understand why they can't just launch the store with just the games right now and then add everything else later. I think Sony is using this as a copout. They want us to shell out $600 for a PS3 in order to download PS1 games. They're only doing the PSP store because so many people bitched and complained about it like I did. It's like Mattel when they were going to release the Keyboard for the Intellivision and the ECS only came out because of complaints and even that was delayed and delayed. It's not because of the DRM or whatever. It's because Sony just doesn't want to do it. Plain and Simple.

I suppose I could make a comment about Sony needing to get a PSP rootkit together before the release this content but Ill just keep from being cocky and say that this doesn't shock me at all. Sony is way too overzealous when it comes to DRM.

The ratio of time-spent-figuring-out-DRM-scheme to time-to-break-DRM-scheme is usually something ridiculous like 150/1.
