I for one hope to god this thing works, and works well, sure some pirates might be able to find a way around it, if it can stop the vast majority of average joes from pirating every and any PC game they want, we might start seeing more and more blockbuster titles going PC exclusive.... god I want the HL1 days back
Luckily some of us are consistent - especially against DRM of any form. Software or hardware, telling my computer what it can or cannot do is a good way to get on my bad side.

Yup, who cares about piracy when you have no privacy. I dont want a chip on my MOBO that spys on me.

Well people would find some way to state that this chip violates peoples rights. It seems like a type of monitoring which i wouldnt even come close to buying. First it will just make sure we arent pirating games, then it will be something else.

I guess the PC version of the console "mod chip" market will be sparking up soon...
post #35 of 120
Yeah....I think if my mobo came with this...I'd send it back to them and make them remove it.

The entire concept of this type of chip is built on the assumption of guilt, the very antithesis of Common Law. It goes against the spirit of every one of the founding documents of the representative republic in which we live, assuming you live in the United States. Better ten million pirates than one person be denied the ability to use the software that they purchased because this system screws up.

Expect these things to appear in Dells and OEM's first. The high end stuff won't have them until later.

what i dont understand is why they aim this at the gaming market. We spend about £30 to £40 on PC games but what about the £3000 adobe CS3 master colleltions and other outragously expenvies software that get pirated every day not to mention oporating systems. Why only focus on stoping the cheapest type of software thats devloped (games). Plus by law motherboard "features" and non compulsorary IC's have to be removable or be able to be disabled in the bios. I dont see how a standard computer will require this to run normally.

It's not like they can force it on all of the motherboard manufactures.

8 years ago I was using an AMD K6II.

Pretty sure that wouldn't run anything today.
