Confirmed: Nintendo DSi to Battle Piracy with Firmware Updates

200°
290w ago - Nintendo's UK boss David Yarnton has confirmed that the DSi has a number of enhancements with regards to its security.

One of the main ways that Nintendo will try and battle piracy on the system is through firmware updates, in similar fashion to what Sony attempts to do with the PSP.

Nintendo also revealed that the system is region locked due to differences in age ratings for certain games.

To quote: Yarnton also went on to discuss the firm's ongoing efforts to battle the threat posed to gaming from piracy, and the measures Nintendo has taken to combat it:





"The DSi has a number of enhancements to built-in security. There's firmware that we can upgrade, to try and keep one step ahead at all times. Hopefully that will protect not only our Intellectual Property but also our publishers, who put a lot of time and investment into developing games."

Microsoft Updates Games for Windows Live Client Interface

100°
306w ago - With all the attention being paid to the vaunted New Xbox Experience interface that will launch later this month for the Xbox 360, Microsoft quietly updated the Games for Windows - Live client today.

The update doesn't introduce any new functionality, that is planned later on with the release of a desktop client as well as the Games for Windows - Live Marketplace. However, the update does give the GFW - Live client a whole new look that's better suited for PCs.

The previous GFW - Live client didn't make much use of the bigger displays and higher resolutions that many PCs sport. It focused much of the interface in narrow boxes centered in the middle of the screen. The new client stretches across the top of the screen, and it presents more information much more cleanly than before.

Also gone are the Xbox 360 "jelly bean" buttons, the big colored buttons that referred to the buttons on the Xbox 360 controller. Those will appear if you plug an Xbox 360 controller into your PC, but if you don't have one plugged in, the interface defaults to a PC-centric look.

All the existing functionality remains. You can check your friends list to see what your buddies are playing and invite them to games or join one of their games; send message and voice messages, invite others to a private chat,...
