Nintendo Bullish on Anti-Piracy Technology inside 3DS

January 28, 2011 -

Earlier this week Nintendo said that it was implementing anti-piracy measures into its upcoming 3-D hand-held that will help the company quell the use of third-party devices - like the R4 device for DS. Of course device makers probably haven't had a chance to design such a device yet, so Nintendo should probably bring its "A game" to this fight. And honestly, it has been a fight for Nintendo to stop the use of R4 devices all over the world, despite some pretty successful legal victories around the world.

Nintendo UK general manager David Yarnton believes that better protection methods and consumer awareness does have a significant impact on the overall problem of piracy.

"There are a lot of things we've learnt over time to try and improve the security and protection - not only of our IP but of our third-party publishers' IP as well," Yarnton recently told Computer & Video Games.

Yarnton also believes that piracy could soon be in "the rear view" thanks to the advancements in protection technology and strong enforcement.

"I think perhaps there's been a 'heyday of piracy' and we've now seen a lot of rules come in to stop it," he says.

Of course, it is way too early to make proclamations. In some circles, those kinds of statements are a challenge to hackers, who were told the same thing about jailbreaking the iPhone and the PS3. Anything is possible on either side, given enough effort and time.

I don't understand why they are talking about this. Saying "We've got kick-ass DRM" sounds like an invitation to hack/crack the device.

Re: Nintendo Bullish on Anti-Piracy Technology inside 3DS

Well ,for one thing "better protection" is almost an oxymoron now.

And two, so long as it doesn't hamper playing my legally purchased and or downloaded games, I'm cool. If it begins interfering though, I'll be pissed.

 It is interfering.

Re: Nintendo Bullish on Anti-Piracy Technology inside 3DS

the PSP and DS are probably the two easiest modern devices to hack, yet their sales are still pretty solid.  I don't see what Nintendo's issue is here.  Open Platform always proves to be a better method of marketing than outright saying, ooh we're going to put in tons of DRM.

Same reason why CEOs get 10-30% of a companies wealth.It looks like they are doing soemthing good for the company.

Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

 I misread the title on my skim of the front page. I think my misreading is more accurately representable of the contents.

Which will be hacked in a year around the time I will bother to buy it.
