Also, many devs may not want to crack the Cobra USB dongle. I mean, work was put into it to make it function. Since no one else knows how it was done you can't really claim they are on the same bandwagon as those that tried to profit from the lv0.
You can all complain blah blah blah DRM dongle. But if they fully developed the emulation they have every right to charge for their work.
That being said, I wouldn't be opposed to someone cracking it
They did not develop the emulation. The emulators are already present in the PS3. PS1, PS2, and PSP Emulators were all done by Sony. All these guys did was a find a way to patch the PS2 and PSP emulators to load games.
They do not have any
right to charge for their work because it involves modifying or reverse engineering proprietary code written by Sony. That is highly
illegal. Neither do they have a right to reDRM the firmware.
No piracy dongle stands on any form of legal ground because they broke the law when they modified Sony's proprietary code, a PS3 firmware.
