    This could well be the ultimate end to DS piracy and all forms of Roms are probably now not gonna work or "brick" our DS's
    this is a big jump for nintendo, but will annoy the hell out of hackers lol... good luck cracking this code! i only hope KHdays DOESNT get this feature implemented

    I hope Pokemon Heart Gold and Soul Silver DOESN'T get this, but I'm buyin it when it get's to english shores anyway. I don't think this will be on KH unless Nintendo been looking into this protection for a while and no one leaked this. Goodbye romzz :'(

    You can be sure it will be there, Nintendo will keep this for one of their big upcoming games, and the Pokemon games seem just like fit for them.
    We will probably see it sooner on other games though.

    Oh, cba to actually buy games for my DS. Oh well, we've had a good run of piracy, and we now have a good back catalogue of games even if no hackers manage to crack this. My guess is our hackers are too 1337 to let this get to them, and it'll be cracked before too long. If it actually means buying DS games, it's not the end of the world though.

    Meh let's just pray this isn't uncrackable, hackers don't fail us now ^^

    We've seen stuff said to be unbreakable, they did it anyway. And they'll just bring out a whole new set of flashcarts anyway if it IS unhackable.

    EDIT: I wouldn't be forced to pirate games if they were correctly RRPed.... Most DS games here are £30... (Even the imagine sh*t) I can get games like Halo 3 (classic, that) for £15!!!! I can Get Call of Duty 4 for £25. These Xbox games last a LOT longer than most DS titles before completion or tiring out, and they're cheaper. Someone needs to "throw a boot to the head" of Nintendo and sort him out srsly, it sickens me too see the shelves stocked full of these cheap Xbox games and the shelves emptied of all imagine titles.... RIP OFF

    The Guy in the interview said that the code detects the type of flashcart and kills the rom. So it has something to do with dldi.

    Once one has been 'hacked', everyone can use that one. Or there maybe software released that can 'hack' your own personal backups.

    I don't see how making each games security slightly different will help, since there's only going to be one released onto ROM sites. It's jsut each game will be different to crack, not harder, just different and therefor longer. More time does not mean forever.

    Piracy will never, ever end.

    What part of "inject a security scheme into the game itself" do you not quite get? It will be for ALL future NDS games. Not just the DSi, or DSi Games.

    Really? Last time I checked the videogame industry has been constantly growing at an exponential rate, their profits continue to rise and among all Nintendo is tremendously ahead since they have been profiting from their last consoles since launch.

    Sorry if I cannot be shamed into buying more language coaches and horse games, hannah montana games and horse games featuring hannah montana: I won't feel sorry cause some multimillionaires can't make a few more bucks out of scaming people with crap shovelware.

    it kills the DLDI process but allow homebrew....
    something fishy is cooking (i am not the tech guy so i don't know how these things work)

    time will tell ~! since they mentioned games launch during the holidays would have this piracy scheme implemented

    However, regardless is the new piracy protection but i think there will be some sort of piracy protection on the following games
    KH 365/2
    DQ9
    SAGA2
    Infinite Space (Maybe Only)
    POKEMON gold and silver remake

    a few more not worth mentioning it, since it is J titles

    If this piracy protection is successful, does that mean that come December, they will release games that are actually worth buying? Yeah, didn't think so.

    All this will mean is that hackers will have something to actually do for a few minutes.
