214w ago - According to THQ's VP Ian Curran in a recent interview with CVG (linked above) new anti-piracy technology utilized in the 3DS will be foolproof to cracks from illegal downloaders alongside digital distribution.

He stated that the "problem with the DS market in the last few years, particulary with the DS Lite, is that it's just been attacked by piracy."

Plans also include using the 3DS to move Nintendo's digital distribution forward according to Nintendo president Satoru Iwata via [Register or Login to view links], to quote:

"We are thinking the release of new hardware should be good timing for a dramatic improvement of this situation. In addition to the function of '3D graphics without 3D glasses,' Nintendo 3DS will have enhanced wireless communication function.

Nintendo 3DS will receive various pieces of information automatically if there is a chance of communication while a user carries it even when he or she does not try to start communication pro-actively by unfolding Nintendo 3DS. By combining Nintendo 3DS with such function, we are now planning to expand our digital-distribution type of business."

215w ago - Recently SCE boss Shuhei Yoshida revealed that PS3 Devs will help build Sony's PlayStation 4 console, and today in an interview with [Register or Login to view links] he expanded stating that the PS4 is likely to arrive after the next-generation XBox and Nintendo consoles.

From the interview, to quote: "Looking from the outside, it was Microsoft that released the first of this generation of consoles. Naturally, in my opinion, Microsoft will make the first move.

Or, because Nintendo's approach was not to upgrade much on its basic hardware - Wii doesn't even support HD resolution - so they might be the first to move.

Probably the watch should be on these companies, in my opinion. Because PS3 was later than Xbox, and is more powerful, so it has a longer lifespan."

217w ago - Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime acknowledged that Nintendo was seeking feedback from attendees and may still tweak the design of the upcoming 3DS.

To quote: "You know typically, at an E3, our engineers are looking for feedback.

You know, we have an army of Nintendo representatives out on our show floor talking to attendees, getting reactions to everything in the device: the depth slider, the buttons, the sliding pad that is, essentially, an analog-type stick.

These are things that we're looking to get reaction to, including the overall button placement. When we get all that feedback, then we'll finalize the design.

The one thing, for sure, is that we will launch in all of our major markets by March 31, 2011," he stated.
