As far I know PS3 games are on a blu-ray support which has higher capacity than DVDs, so you'd have to wait a long while until burnable blue-rays come out.

How long is a long time? Google bd-r

Techinically there is probably ways you could make a game hard to dump : Using non-standard memory stockage (not 27Cxxx EPROMs), using a weird mapper that does not exist in iNES

Better yet, using a weird mapper that contains a crypto-processor. Atari Games did a simple version of this with the SLAPSTIC and SLOOP mappers in some of its arcade titles. Capcom encrypted the data lines on its CPS-2 platform, which hampered emulation for years until 1. binary diffs between the encrypted and decrypted versions of CPS-2 roms appeared as the CPS-2 was being discontinued, and then finally 2. the cipher got cryptanalyzed six years after that.

Oh, and thanks koitsu for the policy update.
