Not this again.....it's not the game itself. It has to do with the heat generated by the components because people are playing for hours at a time without breaks. People were jumping to the same conclusion when Halo 3 first came out.

Actually, according to the article, they contractually stated they would. That is beyond exploring options. I'm not bashing MS, use it every day. I just find this type of thought annoying. It honestly would probably not affect me as I never have had a piece of pirated software, song or movie. Nonetheless, I find it disgusting to even contemplate the thought, I am getting checked by MS everytime I play a Zune.

Also, I jsut copied the first three paragraphs, nothin nefarious in it.

This thread just seems like MS hate, of course they're gonna implement a way to tell if the video is fake, its retarded otherwise. =| Seems the guy who wrote this is just assuming they wouldn't because they weren't specific.

Interesting article and love the comments afterward.

WTG MS. I really want to get a Zune now.
lol... what was M$ thinking? So, instead of buy an authentic Zune to watch pirated contents on the go. PPl are just going to buy some chinese knock off version of Zune to watch pirated contents on the go. Not only they didn't stop piracy... they also potiential sales of their hardware

PPl who don't pirate are not going to abuse copyright infringement even if their device is capable. Its more of a moral obligation...

NOW ppl who do pirate are just going to move away from you product and get something else to play downloaded stuff.

It's not hate, the problem is it could disable songs from the CD's I purchased and ripped. That's what is bothering me. IMO that is fair use.

Oh ok lol. I thought that sounded a bit odd, but seriously, 2 of my friends have their XB360s out in the open, there's no way they should be overheating. I'm really glad that i went with the PC/PS3 combo.

You know this would be an easy workaround. Whether through media converters or "hey this isn't an episode of House. It's my weekend vacation video.mpg"
