3DS Strong Against Piracy?
As if the 3DS could not garner any more news, one of it’s lesser known features is drawing praise from developers. Aside from being impressed by the well-working 3D screen, the intuitive analog, and numerous developers backing it, one could also note the 3DS’s strong anti-piracy features. Well, at least if you are THQ’s VP of global marketing, Ian Curran. Thus, in a Jul. 9 interview with CVG, Curran stated “What excites me even more is that there is technology built in that device to really combat piracy.”
Curran went on to say, "They combated the piracy on DSi, which they don't believe is cracked yet - but they know they've been hurt across the world and they believe the 3DS has got technology that can stop that." While Curran seems quite optimistic about anti-piracy features, history continually denotes otherwise.
One could point to the multiple devices or methods to hack previous and current Nintendo consoles. But really, when people exist who can turn a 360 into a PC, create a coffee table sized NES system, or even just simply mod every Sony system, is any system really safe from hacking?
