Atari founder Nolan Bushnell seems to think so. While speaking at a conference, Atari founder Nolan Bushnell suggested that game piracy will soon be a thing of the past, thanks to a new chip that is currently in production. He pointed out that this stealth encryption chip (called a TPM) is being installed on the motherboards of most of the new computers that are being built. He believes that it will open up revenue prospects in areas such as Asia and India -- which have previously been notorious hotbeds of piracy -- as the chip will be able to "encrypt with an absolutely verifiable private key in the encryption world -- which is uncrackable by people on the internet and by giving away passwords -- which will allow for a huge market to develop in some of the areas where piracy has been a real problem." While this should prove to be good news for software developers, Bushnell believes that piracy of movies and music will continue to be an unstoppable force because "if you can watch it and you can hear it, you can copy it. Games are a different thing, because games are so integrated with the code. The TPM will, in fact, absolutely stop piracy of gameplay." Don't these guys ever give up they are just making hackers smarter than they already are compared to programmers.
