All of the most successful consoles have suffered heavily from piracy and thrived, it's wrong to suggest that every pirated game equals lost revenue for the developer, sure they would lose some revenue but you could equally argue that awareness generated by piracy results in more sales of a game. ie. me telling others about a (pirated) game and them going out and buying it when otherwise none of us would have even heard of it.

For that reason piracy might even benefit smaller developers providing they created a good game to begin with, not all developers can afford massive advertising campaigns or to give magazines wads of cash for favourable reviews <cough> EA.
