Well when the fact of the matter is that when you sell an XBO disc, you don't actually sell the rights in the EXACT same way that when you sell a Steam game retail disc, you don't actually sell the rights, then yeah its kind of (super) relevant when comparing and contrasting how the XBO and PS4 works.
XBO game licensing system IS the Steam system (except that XBO has additional "shared library" and at least some
kind of used game market) in that your "possession" of the game consists of what's on your hard drive and what is on your profile.
PS4 game licensing system is like every previous console generation where your possession of the game consists solely of a disc.
Therefore the DRM used on either console cannot be the same due to the difference in application of licensing.Edited by GrizzleBoy - 6/12/13 at 11:34am
