Those who obtain pirated copies of "Michael Jackson: The Experience" for the Nintendo DS will be greeted by a loud surprise when they attempt to play the video game.The game's maker, Ubisoft, has laid the sound of buzzing vuvuzelas over the music track in the downloadable pirated version.

The company told Wired Magazine it has removed onscreen prompts, making the game completely unplayable.

Piracy seems to be a major problem for the Nintendo DS, because the handheld design makes the system's games easier to copy.
