    The battle against piracy is sinking the legitimate gamer according to gaming site Kotaku, which says new efforts by the likes of Ubisoft, Sony and Nintendo to protect their games puts all gamers, legit or not, in the same boat.

    Kotaku says the gaming companies all seem to have clumped together to clamp down on having their games cracked and spread around the internet for all to download, though the firms themselves claim their respective actions are all independent of each other and that the timing was “coincidental.”

    Looking at the various measures, it certainly does seem to be a case of pick-your-poison, with Ubisoft forcing gamers to stay online while they play, Sony charging an additional $20 to play online and Nintendo suing Aussies for millions for nefarious distribution.

    Actually, despite the fact that James Burt, the 24 year old from Queensland, was ordered to cough up $1.5 million to Nintendo by a federal court for uploading Super Mario Bros Wii ahead of launch (subsequently illegally downloaded 50,000 times) a settlement ensured he would pay a "significant lesser amount."

    A spokesperson for Nintendo also said that it was not "Nintendo's policy to go after individuals.”

    Still, a fine like that is enough to scare the Bejesus out of anyone.

    Ubisoft used a different stick to beat its gamers with, announcing back in January that it would dump its unpopular third-party digital rights management system for an even more unpopular one of its own.

    The new system demanded that gamers be online to play, which is all well and good if you have a decent Internet connection, but if your connection fails, kiss goodbye to your game and game progress.

    Meanwhile Sony decided to cover its piracy losses with cold hard cash from legitimate users. The firm has begun issuing printed vouchers with new games for “online entitlement.” If you bought the game used, or borrowed it from a friend or even rented it, sorry, but you’ll need to pay Sony an additional $20 please.

    Harsh, but Sony’s director of hardware marketing, John Koller, reckons the system wasn’t dreamed up to prevent game rental or second hand game sales, but was designed strictly with piracy in mind.

    Maybe, but it still kills two birds with one stone for Sony.

    At the end of the day, it’s true what Kotaku says, and it will be the legitimate gamers who will pay the price, while pirates will always find other waters
    to fish in.(TG Daily)

    I bet Nintendo's next console won't be so easy to hack and play online with 'backup' copies.

    Considering the amount of shovelware that the Wii gets though, it's perhaps a good thing that we can try before we buy, at least for now.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    Well with the crisis that is around the world, they won't be expecting too much will they? unless they drop their prices. I mean, why the heck would I want to pay 50 euros for a game??????? I don't have that kind of money!!! that's my weekly budget for Christ! paying so much for a game means that I have to stay at home and do nothing for a week! They certainly know better, but lowering the prices would mean more sales! If a decent game was like 20 euros I would buy it wothout second thought, and not just that but more!
    Plus I am in Greece, so it is in our blood, we can't do anything about it we just have to cheat
    That's what the world thinks of us... don't make them prove wrong, shall we?

    My advice don't waste your resources on trying to outsmart people that are usually a lot smarter than you think, and put this money you would have saved into making a product cheaper to buy.

    I don't like the sound of this. I often trade in games to get newer ones. One of the reasons PS3>360 is the free online play.

    I have always refused to pay to play online games, I've played online on PC for free for years and i'm just getting into the PS3 now as I can't afford a new PC to play the latest games. Mind you what's $20, like £12? Still, it all adds up. Games cost enough as it is!

    Don't do it Sony!

    I don´t see why we pirates should watch out?

    But the prices on the games are insane, over the last 10 years i have only bought 3 games and i have NO plans on buying more as long as the prices are what they are.
    For me to buy a new console, it HAS to be able to play copied games otherwise i just dont buy it.
