In an acknowledgment of conventional-gamer-wisdom about the Sony PSP, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe president David Reeves acknowledged that PSP piracy has boosted hardware sales, although he is no way endorsing the homebrew piracy scene.

"There is a piracy problem on PSP. We know about it, we know how it’s done,” Reeves said at a conference in London. “It sometimes fuels the growth of hardware sales, but on balance we are not happy about it,” he said.

Reeves went on to say that Sony is getting ready to  introduce new measures to thwart PSP piracy.

So, reader, ever considered buying a PSP because you knew you could pirate stuff?
