Right to Repair

Video game consoles are unique from other devices, appliances and consumer products in that they rely upon a secure platform to protect users, the integrity of the gaming experience and the intellectual property of game developers. Right to repair mandates, which allow unauthorized parties to bypass the specialized software that protects video game consoles, present unique security and piracy risks to the video game ecosystem.

Today’s video game devices offer consumers high-end, state-of-the-art, multi-functional entertainment. The games played on these devices feature top-of-the-line sound and graphics as well as cutting-edge interactive technology, often costing as much as blockbuster movies to develop and produce.

Unlike other industries, video game device manufacturers must not only protect their own products but also the games played on their devices. These games are often created by other independent video game publishers. That’s why major manufacturers of video game consoles include technological protections to safeguard their platforms from infringement, as well as from network and piracy threats.

These protections are undercut by so-called “right to repair” legislation, which could require manufacturers of consumer electronics—including video game console makers—to turn over sensitive tools, parts and know-how to unauthorized repair facilities. These types of mandates could significantly compromise the security of video game consoles and the security of the video game ecosystems they rely on. In addition, allowing unauthorized parties to bypass the console’s technical protections—which may be necessary for certain hardware repairs—would allow any number of illegally-copied games to be played.

To avoid jeopardizing the integrity of consoles and ensure that players have access to safe and enjoyable game experiences, console makers provide consumers with easy, reliable and affordable repair services.
