Millions of legitimate copies are already being sold so no harm is being caused if I downloaded a single copy over here in Asia where the console was not even launched! I only have two options, either I download a backup copy or do not play at all. In both cases the company will not get any money from me. So what harm did I cause to anyone if I downloaded a copy? The harm will only be done if I can buy it and I do not buy it. At least buying a console adds up to the consoles sold you know. The reason PS2 and XBOX360 sold so well was because they were easily pirated and many kids/guys over here in Asia have one. In case of PS3 nobody could afford it so the sales have been low. If I do not buy a console like you suggested then I will be causing harm to the company by denying them a sale. Like I said earlier I have only two options either download or do not buy the console so what difference does it makes to the company? They wont be getting my money in both cases. On the contrary, if I do not buy the console at all then the company will be deprived of a console sale and I will be denied joy/pleasure. Not buying the console at all instead causes more harm to Sony and suffering to a human in case of Asia. Maybe if you broaden your horizons and mind a little more, you will understand the predicament of billions who are not living a luxurious life in the west. It is very easy to call somebody "entitled" or telling not buy the console at all but only a have-not can understand the suffering of being depraved who has to suffer just because he was born in the wrong/poor country.
There are sites you can buy PSN cards from. Buy a US card and make a US PSN account, redeem the card on there and voila: you can buy a PS+ subscription. And I'm sorry, but not being able to have games is not "suffering".
