A leaked Sony code study suggests that stroke-inducing DRM is only a few years off.
Coders have been digging through Sony's Blu-Ray code and have discovered the framework for an advanced form of DRM that could send would-be pirates into epileptic shock, cause blindness or even death in some cases.
When contacted for comment, Sony said, "Nothing is set in stone. Right now, this DRM is still in the development stages. However, in tests, our new DRM is showing real potential. It has reduced piracy by nearly 100 percent for games using its unique protection scheme."
"Unlike other forms of DRM, it will not only stop piracy, but also the hearts of the offenders. That means networks, once bogged down by file-sharers, will run faster. I don't know about you, but we look forward to the day when we can return the internet to middle-aged men who just want to check their online bank statements and watch porn," the Sony rep continued.
