Piracy has been a tough nut to crack for Nintendo, with the security of its Wii and DS platforms left in tatters within a matter of months.

“We can’t divulge any technical details on that but needless to say this is probably one of our best pieces of equipment in that respect,” he said. “There are a lot of things we’ve learnt over time to try and improve the security and protection – not only of our IP but of our third-party publishers’ IP as well.”
