    I like homebrew, but I have to admit iso loaders are better in some ways.

    It's the people who don't buy games that bug me. I really don't mind if they download Lemmings or Worms to try and if they like it, buy it. That's good sportsmanship. However with the new modchip and ability to run homebrew on 2.71 there is no excuse for "trying" out games as there will now be DEMOS!!

    I'm still wondering who the people are fooling, lokoing for these because "they don't want to carry round the UMD everywhere..." lol wtf

    Anyway I have found one use for ISO loaders = modding games. I recently created a simple wallhack for my retail owned Star Wars Battlefront II, and tryed it out on WiFi with a friend. I showed him the hack at work and we never used it much after - it's novelty worn off and it's use was minimal.

    There are plenty of legal uses for Virtual UMD drives and hooks etc, but the illegalities outweigh the good points, I'm afraid - I'm just wondering when the rush of people at the PSP club ask me to modchip their PSPs they will only have one thing on their mind. Just like any other console with modchips - their main use is for illegal copies of games. I know who those suspects are and I'm not doing it for them. If the game is not worth buying then it certainly mustn't be worth playing.

    I'm currently working with the club to make everyone aware of the full benefit of homebrew to them is, and that there is homebrew that will suit anyone present. Namely the PMP movie format for their movie collection would suit almost everyone, and PSPRadio was a huge hit with the music lovers. So far I've managed to reduce the ranting about copying games down to one tiny first year.. and if he doesn't stop he's being kicked.

    if people bought the games before they pirated them i wouldn't give a crap, but since they don't its going to kill the psp if people continue.

    Really there's more 2.0 and up firmware psp's out there than any other firmware. Also the usage of iso loading on 1.5 firmware psps is so small it's really not going to make that big a deal. Just to let everyone know I'm totally against piracy. I upgraded my psp to 2.7 and I'm happy with it. This release does support isos but it also lets people that bought 2.5 firmware umd's play games they bought on their 1.5's. The only down side is quite a few that still have a 1.5 firmware are going to use it for "other" purposes. I know it's wrong but it's always going to be there. It's almost already there with the 360. I was hoping though that the news I found somewhere else wouldn't make it here, but I'm glad wraggster posted something nipped the topic in the bud. This community is the "only" psp community that I like and have respect for. It's just sad when something like this program comes along that can do so much but also make the scene look bad. I don't think this will kill off the psp with piracy but it makes all the 1.5 and homebrew users just look like warez kiddies. Maybe quite a few are but I know this community isn't.

    Default Piracy is bad but ISO loaders are NOT!

    Exactly.

    A lot of good points brought up on this thread.

    1. Piracy or ISO usage regarding the PSP is not at a level where it is going to kill off the PSP.

    2. I think things like the MOD CHIP coming out & custom firmwares will actually be more of a piracy promoter than the actual loaders themselves. Think about it, it has the potential to allow loaders to work on ALL PSP's.

    I back most of my games up to ISO and compress them with DAX and CiSO because it is far more convenient to be able to have 5 - 10 PSP games all on memory stick. Saving battery, saving UMD optical drive lifespan, and games run so much faster.

    The new DevHook by Booster is awesome. It fully emulates firmware 2.50 including browswer, advanced audio/video codecs, location free player, etc. etc.

    Also I am now able to play FIELD COMMANDER and other games 100% functional on my 1.50 PSP. Saving works, Sleep mode works, & ALL WiFi modes work.

    AWESOME development for PSP homebrew. Especially for 1.50 users.

    Piracy will not lead to the downfall of the PSP; the GBA and the DS are very easily pirated so to speak and they are extremely profitable. Crappy games are leading to a boring PSP universe...

    I use ISO loaders; but I keep realitively QUIET about it (besides this post), just do it and shut up. Personally I hate when people request or more like DEMAND that someone get 'X' game working so they can play it, basically if you aren't contributing anything you have no rights to complain, bitch or comment in general. Take what you can, appreciate and keep your mouth shut...

    the topic title is off a bit i think look at psp milionair, atempts at a gba emu or any other copyrighted things people rip off, thats what sony want to crack down on as much as iso's. there's not much difference between the two but that dont seem to matter to the "hombrew scene" as its not directly affecting the psp. slamming the other site over what they reported dont realy change much as there is an undeniable intrest in the program's capabilitys (which is proberly the biggest break-through for some time). hopefully the source will be made available and a compromise version will come about.

    think how much that got reported here with a link to a site that will sell them.



    sorry for the spelling, im half asleep and it's about 35 past 5.

    As the wisest said, the main problem for companies, SONY in our case, is to have what works on "their" machines under control.
    Having a 1.50 machine and only play emulators and homebrew and dont buy UMDs, ruins their plans and it doesnt matter if you use ISOs.

    there are two reasons the psp will continue to fail in sales
    1 B*****ds using ISOs
    2 people not being able to buy UMDs (like me) because they love real homebrew and wish to keep 1.5 for its ease of use.

    thanks to the latest devhook, i can now use over 100 of software i bought before i downgraded

    and there are now at least five games i want but wont buy because i will have to update. i could afford a new psp, but then i would have no money for the games.
