The fight against Nintendo DS game copying and piracy

The fight against video game copying and piracy continues, and the latest endeavour in the video game industry is aimed towards the Nintendo DS and the R4 style flashcarts. Gamasutra.com spoke with the CEO of Metaforic, Andrew Mclennan, regarding video game piracy and their plan to fight it on the Nintendo DS: Metaforic’s technology at its most basic level detects the form of patching that the R4 cards use to play ROMS, and then proceeds to “kill” the ROM. Understandably, Mclennan didn’t want to get too specific about the methods behind Metaforic’s technology. But he outlined a more general explanation: “We take any DS game and inject a security scheme into the game itself. It turns each game into its own security system. Every time we apply it to a different game, it’s a different security system.”
