GamesIndustry.biz has picked up on a series of Tweets from Q Games founder Dylan Cuthbert, who's been speaking of his company's woes over piracy of PixelJunk Monsters on the PSP.

"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," Cuthbert said to one of the game's fans via Twitter.

The PSP isn't the only handheld that's causing developers and publishers to question the value of releasing new games for the platform. Nintendo is still fighting its way through the Japanese courts over sales of the now-illegal DS flash carts, while ngmoco spoke of the prolific piracy of its iPhone games recently.

But Cuthbert remains vaguely optimistic that, even if the hardware manufacturers have failed to implement lasting anti-piracy measures, maybe a decreasing number of games will begin to play on the conscience of game copiers.

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

We can only hope.

Agreed, "mclovin." Piracy is an excellent way for gamers who are less well-off to try games out and only reward the developers that are truly putting out quality products. (by later purchasing the games)
