Copy Protection Apparently Broken

Dimension S is reporting that the Dreamcast's copy protection has apparently been broken by those crafter fellows over in Hong Kong. It appears that DC units are being fitted with a modifying board that lets regular CDs be read and played from. This method appears to be quite like the one used for the Saturn in which a board was fitted to intercept data after it was read from the CD-Rom drive and then replaced the info with what the Saturn wanted to see, allowing copies to be played. Sega of Japan says they will be using a new method for copy protection in future Dreamcast models.
