Nintendo to take on piracy in 3_D

crimeandpunishment (1754306) writes | more than 4 years ago

Nintendo 1

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"."

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.
