    For every smart anti piracy team there is an equally smart hacker(s) there to undo but ill admit they are making good progress on making it less and less though

    If it has not already started.... to end...

    I'll be surprised if, due to media (memory) costs and sizes versus game needs that it may not be nearly as practical as it was for previous handhelds. Especially if the files are large, and the media isn't, as an example...

    Why would it end?

    Wishfull thinking from the publishers?

    They will most likely do as they always do and use the new console gen to rise the price by 5-10$.
    Aditionally they want to make use sales impossible, illegal or at least impractical.
    Which makes the games even more expensive and annoys the hell out of people.

    That are the biggest trends I see and neither one is going to lessen piracy, quite the contrary.

    A possible higher cost to the pirates due to increased security will simply be negated by that.

    There will always be piracy for consoles. It'll never end.

    They'll be piracy for everything.

    What's the saying I heard when I grew up: "if one man put it together, another man can take it apart."

    Getting rid of piracy is like getting rid of racism. It just won't happen. They will always be people out there who wants a challenge. And when one is presented to them, they jump right on the chance to prove that they are just as smart as the people who put the security together.

    Nintendo/Microsoft/Sony: We do not like it when you pirate our games, we would like you to stop.
    Pirates: Ask nicely:
    Nintendo/Microsoft/Sony: Please stop.
    Pirates: *stop*

    Not gonna happen.

    Honestly I'm more interested in the next generation of piracy, stealing software is cool but copying hardware with a 3D printer is the dream.

    Piracy never affected games.
    Even though piracy rates are getting higher, so are the sales.

    I think we will still see piracy but it will be much harder to achieve for the average joe and much more costly.
    It will also require constant updates making it even less viable for the normal every day guy.

    As long as people don't want to pay for their games, piracy will continue to exist in some form. Sure, the DRM may get better, but that's just a momentary delay for a determined group of pirates.

    Yes, and when piracy ends the whole world will blow up and then the Four Hoursemen of the Apocalypse will return and create a new world full of pirates.

    Are people doubting piracy because the 3ds hasn't been hacked yet?
    Off-Topic: @Hyro-Sama since when you are the only one here who likes KH?

    I always found it funny that people will say "Micro$oft" but not "$ony" or "Ninten-dough".

    But piracy will come eventually, whether it'll come in a degree that's accessible to everyone is another thing.
