THQ: '3DS Will Combat Piracy Which Will Boost Popularity'

THQ publishing boss Ian Curran believes the Nintendo 3DS will help combat piracy and in turn make it more attractive than other iterations of the handheld:
“What excites me even more [than 3DS games] is that there’s technology built in that device to really combat piracy."

“The problem with the DS market in the last few years, particularly with the DS Lite, is that it’s just been attacked by piracy. It’s made it almost impossible to shift any significant volume. The DSi combated it a little bit, but the 3DS has taken that a step further.”
Previous Nintendo DS models have seen a massive influx of piracy through the use of the R4 card.
