i know this is VERY premature; but do you think that there will be encoding so that jap/usa/euro games will not play on each others systems.
in the past the old 3DO had no lockout on jap/usa games
the pc/turbo duo had no lockout on cd based games only the Hucards....just curious...

Yeah, its a required feature of any dvd player.... cause of rampant piracy
