    Default Sony’s Plan for Battling Piracy on Next - Gen Consoles

    Sony patented software to help fight piracy, and uses load time to do it.




    by Jeremy Gering February 23, 2013

    Sony has recently filed a patent that tracks load time and helps protect against pirated software. The patent is described as if someone inserts software too quickly or too slowly, it gets flagged. However, for this to work there has to be a standard range set. While this method seems too flawed to be implemented, one can’t help but see the reasoning behind Sony’s actions. As stated in the patent, “if an authentic game title is distributed exclusively on BDs having a total benchmark load time of 45 seconds on a game console BD drive, the acceptable range of load times could be from 40 to 50 seconds. Thus, a total measured title load time of 4 seconds would be outside of the acceptable range of total load times for a legitimate media type.” With this being said, I see this as a major threat to many people with older and malfunctioning hardware. Another example of how this is supposed to work:
    Could this software piracy on consoles, and do you think this software will prove effective if implemented? Post your thought’s below.

    Sounds like it will slow piracy down rather than stop it.

    This is really interesting.

    Like TBW said, piracy has a chance of slowing down, but it will never stop.

    Actualy. i dont think you understand what a Patent is.

    what they have done is given them the legal right to use this method while making it so nintendo and microsoft cant use it without paying them a fee

    the also filed a diffrent form of DRM in a patent. they will never use it but others cant use that particular idea without paying sony rights
