3DS Anti-Piracy Measures are Too Sophisticated for Human Brain

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - 3DS Anti-Piracy Measures are Too Sophisticated for Human Brain

So says THQ man

Nintendo's suffered badly at the hands of piracy this generation, although it's done its best to stem the flow with a series of court cases and lawsuits. With its next-generation 3DS handheld the company's keen to combat the problem still further, employing more preventative technology than before; technology so powerful it's apparently too sophisticated to explain.

You might be happy now, pirate, but just you wait

That's what Nintendo told THQ's executive Vice President of Global Publishing (we promise we don't invent these job titles) Ian Curran, who seems happy that the 3DS will do more to combat the problem that prevented his company from producing more titles on the DS family.

 

The problem with the DS market in the last few years, particularly with the DS Lite, is that it's just been attacked by piracy. It's made it almost impossible to shift any significant volume. The DSi combated it a little bit, but the 3DS has taken that a step further. I actually asked Nintendo to explain the technology and they said it's very difficult to do so because it's so sophisticated.

Whether that's the real reason the company couldn't explain the measures, or that they thought better of giving the opposition a long headstart is entirely down to interpretation, of course.

Yeah  that pretty much what I was thinking. Or maybe its just too complicated to explain in a short conversation or a small letter

....aaaaany second now.

 

.....nnnnnow....



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

how do you know? lol.



Atto Suggests...:

Book - Malazan Book of the Fallen series 

Game - Metro Last Light

TV - Deadwood

Music - Forest Swords 

If that's true, which i think it's not, it's impossible for it to outsell the DS.

Piracy moves lots of hardware.



i hope next gen all systems will be free of piracy. i think it's best for the industry even if it moves less hardware.

it's really stupid when people tell you that they want the games but they dont want to pay for them.



Nintendo executives are aliens confirmed!



Its probably because they didn't want to give the crackers any information before it was released not because its too sophisticated to explain what its actually doing.
