[Gem] Sony has used game ‘solution’ for PlayStation 4, might cancel plans following Xbox One backlash - Page 6

post #51 of 67
I bought my PS3 Slim shortly after I rebuilt my PC and when the PS3 Slim first hit the shelves, just so I would have an alternative. I've played 2 games on it since I bought it. Its collecting dust in my bedroom and is only used for netflix. My PC has better graphics and gameplay. I'll stick to PC thankyou. And don't really see myself ever buying a console again.

You're missing the point. Its an option now, but won;t be on future systems. It should be an option, and that's the point.

I personally kept my profile on a USB stick all the time. I wouldn't use the cloud if it was only optional.

Apparently some people don't see it that way, or don't want to see it's a problem at all..

At the end of the day, there are people who want to play a game and be done with it, and that's the customer's right. Imagine if you had to buy every single movie you saw and keep if for life because there was no way to rent or stream it or whatnot. Nobody would stand for that, but they do it to gamers and it's ok? How many of you have bought a DVD/BluRay/Whatever and only watched it once and let it sit to collect dust after that? How many of you have dozens or hundreds of movies that fit that description? Sure, developers need to make money, but look at how much of the sales of a game happen in the first few weeks when there are no used copies available. It's not gonna make that big a difference to their bottom line, and I'd wager it would just be offset by people like my uncle, whose new game budget comes mostly from selling the old ones he's done with, no longer buying games at all.

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.

I'll tell you exactly what MS's attorneys will say to that, they will say you bought the disc and you are free to resell or do whatever you want with that disc. The actual right to use the software is licensed per user and once you've sold or lent your game disc people can install the game with it but to actually play it they will need to purchase their own license.

Personally I don't like that but it is what it is. I know I won't be buying an Xbone in any case.

I am gonna buy a PS4 for a lot of reason over Xbox One. The main reason though MS is not getting my money anymore is because of Used Games DRM. I just want to see Xbox One fail so bad so that it can send a clean message to any company trying stupid stuff like them. People say that it can't happen but they said the same thing about Windows 8 before it was released.

Psst. Sony hasn't actually said there won't be a used game fee. Notice this thread says "might". If M$ goes through with it, Sony will too. If Sony backs out of it, M$ will too. They both want to do it, they both know it'd be suicidal to do it alone. They're just playing the PR game now.

Neither console is going to fail, sorry.

I never thought I'd say this, but: Thanks Sony for doing what people want!

(Even if it is only a business move)
