of piracy that it... Ok so It'll probably never go away, but I think in as little as 5 years it'll be a small insignificant minority still doing it. Look at the following:- The XBOX is already commercially uncrackable. That's why there's no Region X and the like. Unless Microsoft allows it, you can't release anything. So that leaves Modchips, fine for offline games but I think I'm right in saying you can't copy Live games and play them online without getting barred?. And that's where they're going to stop piracy!!! Ok, so five years is maybe being optimistic for this country but it's a given that enventually 90%+ of console owning homes will have high-speed internet access. So, what if future generations of consoles are so dependant on broadband access that most games require it, even slightly it would be enough for checks to be made to the legitmacy of the software and bar any pirates. The Gamecube is already copy proof? Sony games still haven't been copied after nearly a decade? So once you eliminate modchips you eliminate piracy?
