According to Nintendo, the company’s portable Nintendo 3DS gaming system, which promises a glasses-free 3D experience, will auto-update itself to block and prevent pirated games and contents from loading onto the device. The company intends on using its sleep-WiFi capability and SpotPass to deliver automatic updates to fight piracy on the platform.
It had been reported earlier that Nintendo will be revamping its piracy protection on the 3DS, and it looks like the company is making good on its promise. This should hopefully attract more developers to the platform to create compelling games and experiences, something that will be needed as Nintendo will be facing stiff competition from Apple and other smartphone vendors as the apps market is rapidly growing.
Piracy has long been a concern of mobile platforms, including Google’s Android mobile operating system, which has seen limited high-end game titles from coming to the Android store called Android Market, because developers are concerned about piracy and DRM.
