Anti-Piracy Chip?

Encryption chip will end piracy, open markets, says Bushnell on GamesIndustry.biz quotes Atari founder Nolan Bushnell saying a new encryption chip being installed on new computer motherboards holds the key to eradicating piracy of PC games:
"What that says is that in the games business we 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."

Bushnell thinks that piracy of movies and music, however, is probably unstoppable 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.

"As soon as the installed base of the TPM hardware chip gets large enough, we will start to see revenues coming from Asia and India at a time when before it didn't make sense."

true, but it's also the case that when you play the full version of a game that cost you nothing, you mentally devalue it anyway. Many games take a few hours to really get going and to see what they are truly like, but if you just torrent them, you never give them a chance.
Its no coincidence that the people who constantly claim "all games are CRAP" are people who never pay for them. Subconsciously we think cheap stuff is crap, and free stuff even crapper, regardless of the truth.
