besides that this isnt 100% full proof, but is infact good news cause it might help the market for us...

if a mobo company was smart they wouldnt use this chip and would be just another reason to purchase from that company
wouldn't Dell and Hp put it on their mobos?

Can you say invasion of privacy in the US. I really dont think that this will ever fly in the US with all of our privacy laws. Its very hard for a organization to pull something like this off. Also I imagine that the US is a very big market share for the DIY PC crowd.

grrrr, make good games for cheap and sell them in stores for cheap, cheap package whatever, simple decide will do, and people will be buying

thing with steam, only if i can just get a bill from them and pay for it, then I will definately buy all the fun games on it, stuff like that, if u start a company for the sole purpose have make billions, then i dunno,

i seen people buying world of warcraft, where i believe, u can download it etc? during the installation it never as for the key that's on the case (i don't play but i work at a internet cafe) so a game like that cost how much? and the expension cost how much,

they charge this amount of money because of it's popular?, last game i bought was Load of the rings BFME 1 for 25 bucks, that's after the 2nd one is about to go out of market, and b4 that was farcry as valuegame for 10bucks at walmart.. these things I can afford, 60 dollars Crysis? nah, don't have mommy or daddy to pay for me,(that included high end education)

Games cost a lot to make. It's estimated that GTA4 took $100million dollars to finish. Rockstar can't turn around and sell each game for $10. They have to make money or they won't be making anymore games.

This concept seems to evade many.

I'm sure it would be very easy to impliment without causing privacy issues.
think of consoles as they employ something very similar. you can't just copy a game and put it in instead you have it checked with internal hardware/software that checks to verify if the game is legit or not and that flies just fine.

or hell think of securerom, and all those other software based piracy prevention methods. one's software the other is hardware based and yet those are very legal also.

No, of course not. Games would be querying the chip for "validation" that this is a protected PC. If the chip isn't there, the game won't function; unless the game is also hacked to not query for the chip anyway, in which case removing the chip isn't even necessary.

This is eactly how consoles work, and no one is suing for privacy concerns. The generally successful console protection model moving into the PC space is not going to trigger anti-privacy issues.
