Pirates Plundering Chances of More Pixeljunk’s on PSP

October 21, 2009 Written by Cameron Teague

pixeljunk-monsters-deluxePiracy has been one of the major issues since the PSP hit store shelves in 2005 and it’s now affecting one of the highest selling PSN games to date, PixelJunk Monsters.

PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe was recently released for the PSP and it looks like things are not going that well for the title. Dylan Cuthbert, President and Managing Director of Q-Games recently had this to say about the game on his personal twitter account.

“I don’t think we’ll port anything else to the PSP, we have to see how PJMD does as there’s a *lot* of piracy”

He went on to respond to a comment of how PixelJunk  Monsters Deluxe was perfect fit for the PSP by saying,

“Monsters is such a good fit it is being pirated I think, maybe the pirates will buy the full version out of guilt?”

When pressed about the possibility of the game detecting if it is a legit copy or not, Dylan did not seem too up on that,

“unfortunately the pirates could just hack those kinds of things out”

Hopefully the game sales pick up as the PixelJunk games are great fun and seem the perfect fit for the mobile experience.  PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe released on October 1st, the same day that the PSPgo hit the shelves.  As always, Stay Connected to PlayStation LifeStyle for all your PSP/PS3 news.
