    Um, actually, the terrible quality is the reason it's "almost impossible to shift any significant volume" of THQ games.

    Lets see, we all know that the PS3 has not yet been hacked and that THQ publish games to that platform.
    So all they need to do is check if they actually manage to sell all the shovelware games. xD

    Perhaps THQ should actually publish a good game for the DS instead of crap movie/cartoon-based tie-in products marketed to retarded parents who buy crap for their children.

    if anything, no one is pirating their games

    Thanks to the PS3 a lot of people will think a lot of things.

    But the 3DS is not going to be a PS3, and will need to earn it's 'not crackable' rep on it's own.

    I think one of the best things nintendo can do to prevent piracy and to also help compete with the iphone and itouch market is to both bring virtual console games to the 3DS and to make some kind of app market for the 3DS. One problem with the older handhelds is that every game cost 20-35 bucks so just having a few games could run you some serious money. With an ipod, you can have a hundred games for 20 bucks, with the free and cheap games available. It is hard or impossible to beat priacy altogether(and I wouldn't want them to personally), but also giving programmers and talented hackers a venue where they can sell their software will seriously decrease and in many respects make piracy less necessary.

    The more they claim for it to be unhackable, the more the hackers will try to hack it. So in the end, it will probably still work out in our favor.

    You cant compare a ds to a ps3 though. Microsdhc's are cheap, blank blurays aren't. Plus ps3 games are big. This is why people arent really interested in hacking the ps3
