Sony to Authenticate Games

Sony will make it harder on pirates by introducing a new technology called DNA-S this summer in Japan. The technology will use the Playstation 2's online cabalities to authenticate the software titles. Software that has not gone through the authenication process will not work.

The system will allow Sony to allow the use of game content solely on one machine since the authentication process will transmit the game's unique ID and individual Playstation 2 IDs. Varying levels of permissions can be used under this system.

There are no plans as of yet to introduce this system in the U.S. How such a system would be received in the U.S., with several privacy and consumer rights advocacy moments,remains to be seen.
