+ - Nintendo to take on piracy in 3_D-> 1

Submitted by crimeandpunishment
crimeandpunishment (1754306) writes "Nintendo says when its new handheld game device with 3-D technology comes out, it will have beefed-up anti-piracy measures. For obvious reasons, the company is keeping tight-lipped on the specifics. Nintendo president Satoru Iwata says they're not only concerned about software piracy, but a growing tolerance for it. He says "We fear a kind of thinking is become widespread that paying for software is meaningless"."

Nintendo to take on piracy in 3_D

  • Paying for software isn't meaningless. charging for software is meaningless. It is not the consumer's fault if you chose a business model based entirely on the scarcity of a freely available resource. It is not society's purpose to invent arbitrary restrictions which allow whatever inane money-making scheme you've invented to work, even if it worked in the past.
