Fighting to maintain it's IP rights and the modesty of it's buxom digital lovelies, Tecmo spikes the hackers that have de-bikining the XBV cast. This from the Inq: Tecmo, is, apparently, livid that a couple of hackers have released a patch for its volleyball game which enables you to make the players play in the nude. The outfit has filed a lawsuit in federal court in Chicago accusing Mike Greiling, Will Glynn and others of infringing on Tecmo's proprietary software. The patch for the Microsoft's Xbox console removes the bikini tops of the already scantily clad players in Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball. Tecmo has also shut down www.ninjahacker.net which was being used to distribute the patch. John Inada, general manager for Tecmo, said in a statement: "On behalf of the game industry, the gamers and all future innovations in gaming, the protection of intellectual property is a serious issue that affects everyone in the game industry, and can no longer be ignored." L'inquage What did Tecmo expect? The hackers are only following in what is becoming an an age old tradition in gaming circles. You publish a game with scantily clad females, therefore expect a nude to be available about 30 mins after release.
