Should probably think about that for a sec.

Bottomline.

Microsoft will charge to load your account with a used game. That charge will be anywhere from 1 cent to 53 dollars. If you buy your game used from a retail store, the retail store will have to pay the charge.

Can you explain to me how charging 53 dollars+allowing the retail store to make profit+plus pay the customer a reasonable price is going to work on a 59 dollar game?

What, microsoft gets 53 dollars for the used game. The retail store get 3 dollars to sell it, the customer that turns in the used game gets 1 dollar. How is that not killing the second hand market? I just don't get it.

On topic, the same above applies to sony. Microsoft is not blocking the use of second hand titles either, they are just simply pricing them out of the market. Sony will probably do the same thing.

Once again, no on is blocking the use of second hand games. Just charging you for the use.

Just like no one is blocking the use of new games, just charging you to use them.

There is no good guy/bad guy. Sony is a company and their job is to make a much profit as possible. You all are consumers, and your job is to demand the most enjoyable experience possible. You're not friends - this is business. A company is only as good as the service they provide you with.

So stop with the rhetoric because if you were them you'd do the same thing. It's the consumer's fault for putting up with this crap.

sony is much afraid of consumer backlash after experiencing it first hand with PSN taken down, hacked by anonymous and consumer boycott

Is this news? AN outlet is reporting on something someone said months ago, that we already knew about.

First of all, the policy of "any requirement for users to register a game online in order to play it would be left to game publishers" is a hole big enough to walk a colossus and it's shadow through.

If a publisher require online verification, your PS4 needs to be online whether Sony requires it or not.

What needs to be seen is Sony prohibiting mandatory online verification for non-online play. Until then, it is all just word games.

Taking the role of a gamer's Pontius Pilate and washing your hands of it when you know they will kill used games shouldn't be fooling anyone.

Not enough people realize that the power rests with them, and that is a shame.

They didn't wait to see anything, this is a statement made 4 months ago, long before we knew about the Xbox One. Also, if you want to look like a douche by inserting $ signs on company names you might as well use a Yen sign for Sony (Son¥), would be a tad more original.

well atlest that is what they say now, they still have the privilege to change their service agreement at any time after you have purchased it and hold it as ransom till you sign all your rights away and agree to their terms

just hope they dont pull the PS3 stunt and ruin PSN

1 - There was no 180, because this is the only statement Sony has made regarding this matter
2 - The Xbox One has yet to launch (it has been announced)
3 - This is a statement made in February, that is being shown again because of the Xbox One reveal. This is 4 months old news.

PS4 will not require an always online connection and, it will not block the use of second hand titles. This was said back in February, by Sony Worldwide boss Shuhei Yoshida during a round table after the PS4 reveal. Kotaku also reported this back in February and again this week. Any DRM on used games will be left up to the publisher in question, according to Yoshida. Hope this clears everything up.

I'm not saying that Sony is being completely transparent, but you people should try and read the article (or even the quote in the first post, where this is mentioned twice!) before acting clever and saying this is a sudden reaction to the recent Xbox announcement.
