SCEA’s John Koller’s told MTV that the firm’s seeing a reduction in the amount of PSP piracy in recent months.

“We’ve made really no secret [that there] certainly has been some piracy on the PSP,” said the marketing exec.

“We’ve seen that as a significant issue — it’s trending down right now, we’ve seen the piracy not be as such prevalent in the last month to two months. But it has been a problem for us.”

Koller added that SCEA monitors piracy of the handheld on forums.

“We’ve noticed there’s kind of a ‘good vs. evil’ battle that we track on many of the forums and many of the pirated web sites,” he added.

“There’s certainly people that are standing up and fighting for what we consider the good side, the rights of developers and publishers to make money on their IP.”
