Next step, of course, is always-on authentication, unique IDs for each console/gamer, etc. The idea is not just to eliminate "piracy" but also to kill the used games market. The future? You won't "own" any content. You'll just lease your games; everything by subscription.

did sega do that with its cartridges, even though you brought them they still own`d them, well something like that

When will software companies learn the harder the protection is to crack the more prestige the cracker gets
thus making a challenge that ppl who do that kind of thing can`t refuse
