do u think Sony kept the price high to combat piracy?
I think the constant security updates are for that, unless the price covers those, in which case yes.
I don't think the price was to deter piracy, because let's face it, the piraters are the gamers who will buy every system, not the casual buyer....so the price would deter the casual market, not the hardcore gamer who'd buy it regardless.
I have one and did hack it, not to pirate Vita games but to play games like X-Men Legends 2 that I legally own and can't repurchase for the Vita....and to play Super Metroid on the train on a nice screen.
After the AT&T Cancels on t he 32GB and 16GB cards I was pissed. However I did score two 16GBs for $30 each and an 8 GB for $15 at an AT&T retail store. If they have them in stock all Vita accessories are 50% off.
GameStop is a rip off period, they even charge for the air you breathe in store (courtesy of O'Haire Air)
LOL so true. I have avoided even walking into a gamestop for a couple years because being there always puts me in a bad mood. But I was bored and I live so close to a mall that has one inside so I decided to see what they would offer for some of my ps2 games. Quality ps2 games in perfect condition which they did not currently have any of the titles in stock such as Metal Slug, Viewtiful Joe 2 and Maximo(AOZ) and they wanted to offer me $1.50 for all three. The sales person pitched me all kinds of pathetic sales tactics such as how "I have to buy a Wii U Now!", "It's Amazing!", taking his sweet time to scan my 3 games and give me a quote. At the end when I laughed and said "No thank you I will just keep them" he got upset and insinuated that I should at least pre order Tomb Raider since I took up his time. He then told his boss he was sorry that he let himself get distracted from a non customer. I was one of the only people in the store, Gamestop employees are so evil it's comedic.
