PS2 came up on China ban on consoles possibly being lifted and I found this.
Quote:The memory card is controlled because it contains incredibly powerful encryption technology. Japan's rules say that anything with higher than 56 bit encryption has to be controlled. Playstation 2 uses 128 bit encryption.Was this ever used? The PSX DVR is the only thing I can think of but 8MB isn't going to fit a lot of music or video. Did the PS2 support bigger or did the 3rd party ones use buttons to cycle blocks? I don't think anyone would think distributing music or video on memory cards instead of CD/DVD would be good idea (did anyone buy the GBA video carts?).
Sony says it made it that powerful in order to stop customers copying music and videos with their Playstation.
