Mod chips do more than play "pirated" stuff, for example you can run.... Linux :p

+ They are never going to be able to stop piracy, it's like they will never stop drug, people will always find ways around things.

Exactly, I put a mod chip in my original PS because I wanted to play Metal Gear Solid months before the US version was available. It wasn't pirated, In fact I spent more to get the Premium edition of MGS from japan. I got to play it a quarter of a year before it was released here.

And you're right. As long as there's technology, there will always be a way around technology.
