[Gem] Sony has used game ‘solution’ for PlayStation 4, might cancel plans following Xbox One backlash - Page 2

post #11 of 67
Sony has been sitting back and playing their cards cautiously. After seeing the backlash that MS is currently receiving they'd have to be insane to go through with this.
Currently the PS4 has a strong popularity lead, I'd hate to see them throw that down the drain for DRM.
If both sides end up with this used fee garbage I'll simply rebuild my system and go on with my day.

At first I couldn't care less about used games DRM as I always buy new for myself, but as my 6yr old son now has a 360 most of the games he wants are so old that I can only find them pre-owned/used -- they are nice and cheap too (often $5-15$). You can get most of these older titles through the Xbox store but the price is 3-4x higher then the pre-owned copy. Surely theres a lot of people out there in the same boat and while I have owned the first two Xbox systems, implementation of an anti-used game policy would sway me over to the PS4

I'll have to dig up the quote, but Sony already said that the PS4 won't have any used game DRM well before XBone was announced officially.

Under the fair use copyright law, that will get a class action law suit sometime in its life I guarantee it:

Basically it states that once an item is paid for a owner can do with it as they see fit, as long as they don't break copyright laws as in copying etc.

That explains how steam has done it for years.... rolleyes.gif The terms are you're buying a single-user copy, and therefore you can't resell it. It gets convoluted, but it's not illegal.

You'd be surprised. I'm pretty sure I know which quote you're referencing, and it was a whole lot of doublespeak.

Yea Sony has apparently learned a HUGE lesson from the PS3. I could've sworn that either A) Sony came out and said they're not blocking used games, or B) they're leaving it up to the developers.........

Sure we can. PC!

I owned both a 360 and PS3 this generation but am definitely going to avoid the XBOne (pronounced x-bone) this time around.

Not kill Xbox one but surely will be one of the biggest factors when someone is deciding which system to buy.

I'm in the same boat.

If this means we are going to be forced to pop a disc into the console just to play the game for the next 10 years then I will be disappointed. Lack of Innovation IMO


Personally I wish more then anything that Digital Content should be cheaper then Physical. If I could go buy a New game on PSN or XBL with all the distribution fees taken away I would be more then happy to be online only. I have no problem atm with not being able to sell my steam games, mainly because I like to keep every game I buy.
