Absolutely, and I'm sure it'll be a bit of both.
The more games shift to online the more that is lost over time. Game patches, game servers, dlc, etc. , these are all things that once this gen is over will no longer exist if the hackers don't intervene. On the PS3 even demos are time limited before they're removed from the store.
Many people only see it as a means to get free stuff, but for legitimate customers these sorts of things have many practical uses as well.
