That's Atindriya Bose, country manager of PlayStation India. He's here to tell us all about India, a growth region Sony has been supporting full force. While Bose calls PS2 and PSP sales "healthy," the exec notes that the PS3 still has yet to take off. "While most people buy genuine PS2s and PSPs," says Bose, "they tend to buy PS3s from the grey market due to the heavy price." What's more, Bose says the recently-launched-in-India DS hasn't much affected the PSP sales. The country still does not have the online infrastructure for the PSN as it would take some users days to download games.

This may sound odd but this is my thought,
I bought a PS1 - Because I modded it and was able to DL and Burn my own games.
I bought a PS2 - Because I modded it and was able to DL and Burn my own games.
I bought a xbox1 - Because I modded it and was able to DL and FTP into the HDD my own games/Emu's.
I bought a PSP - Because I modded it (CFW + 8GB Stick) and was able to DL and play my own games.
I bought a Xbox 360 - Because I modded it (iXtreme firmware 1.4) and was able to DL and Burn my own games.
.... Do you see a trend here?
ALL of these systems ARE or were number 1 for there time.
I'm not saying Piracy sells a system, But something is up here.
