Nintendo Takes 40% Off 3DS Price Tag

Nintendo is already going down the success slope because of poor sales of its recently released 3D gaming console, Nintendo 3DS. This has put Nintendo in some serious trouble.

Driver: San Fransisco, Features Messy DRM

The PC video game industry has suffered a lot because of piracy. Therefore, game developers are becoming more and more cautious about their game releases. At the start, when there was nothing such as controversial DRM, all you needed was to download a crack for your favorite game and enjoy it by downloading it from P2P sites.

But the case is altogether different now. And leading in protecting the games with DRM technology is Ubisoft. Ubisoft had been really hard on PC gamers by protecting their critically acclaimed titles such as Assassins Creed with DRM.

When the game console first came out, there were many complaints about the structure of the unit, claiming that the screen would easily get scratched due to not having enough of a cushion when it was closed.
