Nintendo has made quite a bold boast, declaring that the golden age of software theft is reaching an end with the advent of the 3DS and the onset of new anti-piracy legislation. Guys … you do realize that console crackers love a challenge, right?
“We can’t divulge any technical details on that but needless to say this is probably one of our best pieces of equipment in that respect,” said Yarnton. “There are a lot of things we’ve learnt over time to try and improve the security and protection. It’s not just to the extent of the technical side but on a global basis many countries and governments are recognising that the IP of creative industries and such needs to be protected.”
Marketing manager James Honeywell added his own opinion: “People are aware that video games, music and movies make massive contributions to the economies of countries. They need to make sure they start protecting those things. “I think perhaps there’s been a ‘heyday of piracy’ and we’ve now seen a lot of rules come in to stop it.”
Yeah … I give the 3DS a month before it’s ravaged. And that’s being generous.
