I just wanted to post this to see if any other soul has heard the news. I saw on the screen savers show on tech tv that a new form of software protection is in the rising. The protection is called fade and what it does is after you made the copy of lets say madden 2004, you wont notice anything wrong with the game until after playing it a couple times. The characters will start to disappear and other variables will occur which will not let you be able to finish a game which is a copy. What I dont know if this new copy protection is for the console games or pc games or both. Anybody want to share some thoughts.
