Now it’s Square Enix’s turn at bat to fight the pirates with its upcoming iOS title Deus Ex: The Fall. If the game recognizes a jailbroken device, the player’s guns with jam, preventing them from firing. To be fair, this isn’t exactly the same as pirating the game, as users with jailbroken devices can still buy the game legitimately, which is causing something of an uproar from those who have done exactly that.
Square Enix has announced that they will be removing restrictions against jailbroken devices in the near future, which is good news for consumers. Wanting to protect your product is one thing, but jumping from a jailbroken iPod to a pirated game is an unnecessary assumption.
