The technology would allow an authentication code to be read and then rendered unreadable, making the software unplayable on any machine but the one which first read it.[/quote:43ec746217]
The problem being it would take a hardware mod (I reckon anyway) to stop the console from reading/writing to this file, not something many gamers would want to have to do.

Now of course this hasnt been confirmed as a PS3 feature or anything, just one more piece of news to come out of the rumour mill but an interesting one nonetheless…
