Once again, cat & mouse...
Well it must have had really weak copy protection to get cracked this quick. I mean these companies complain like hell when their stuff gets cracked. Perhaps they should have made sure it was stronger
They've only sold like 5,000 of these things. I think the copy protection is the last thing they need to worried about.
They probably circumvented it themselves so more people would buy the hardware thinking "free games!". heh
I doubt that. A significant source of their revenue from this product was supposed to be sales of the cracked software.
how do you copy/keep these games on other devices, aren't they like 10's of megs ?
"Nokia has high hopes for N-Gage, aiming to sell between six and nine million units before the end of 2004 ..."
DVD's are 4GB+...and those get pirated...
yeah, but it is kind of difficult to squeeze those DVD's into your phone...
Dog bites man.
The "additional hardware" they say is needed to crack the security is an external keyboard. If you plug in the keyboard to it and hold down the shift key while inserting the game, suddenly the copy protection is nullified. Some people never learn.
How can they expect to sell that many? It's too awkward as a phone and too expensive as a game system since you can get a GBA for $60 and have a much wider selection of games than for the expensive Nokia.
To change games you have to take the back off the phone, the screen shape is also all wrong, it should be a 4:3 ratio, not 3:4 like it is at the moment. Who ever designed it, designed it more as a phone than a games machine. They should bring out an updated version that corrects these mistakes, like Nintendo did with the GBA SP.
If Nokia dont fix its mistakes, it will stand no chance against the Sony PSP when it is released.
N-Gage - Not Impressed
I feel no remorse for Nokia on this one. I really don't like the N-Gage and I don't think it was designed very well. I can't see them meeting their sales targets at all, with or without the games being hacked.
