“Piracy won’t be as big on the next generation hardware” – Avalanche Studios

"There was a lot of brouhaha over anti-used games tech and its supposed presence on next-gen systems. Sony has been saying cryptic things while Microsoft is awfully quiet on this matter as well, but more will be revealed as we come closer to the next-gen console launch." (Next-Gen, PS4, Xbox One)

Piracy won’t be as big on the next generation hardware
Very true if they keep making the same Generic Games that are not worth buying but make great Rentals.

Anyway Next Gen consoles may incorporate always on Online DRM!

Plus an influx of MMO type games will also combat piracy.

(Pretty much following in the PC's footsteps)

I agree with you, torchic.

Since Yoshida says 'no'..... then I have no reason to disagree.

I doubt that, DRM fails already, so I can imagine how that will continue to fail. The thing is, its like Star Wars said, the more you tighten your grip, the more the games will fall through their grasp.

There will always be piracy.

piracy wasn't big this gen or are they confusing with the "evils" of second hand games
Gildarts  +   692d ago
Lol where have you been this Gen? This Gen should be known as the generation of piracy.

i will assume you have never owned a dreamcast or ps2?
TuxedoMoon  +   692d ago
Piracy will always be an issue, imo. No matter the generation, people will find ways to hack their consoles/games and copy games. This will probably only be another challenge for those pirates that have fun cracking consoles.
wishingW3L  +   692d ago
considering that both the next-Xbox and PS4 will either use x86 or x64 architectures then the fact that they will be hacked is a given. If they hacked the PS3 which is mostly custom tech then imagine what they will do to a console which is basically a PC?

There is a difference between hacking and having your hardware keys leaked.

Lets be accurate about the PS3, 'hack'.

No matter how it is done it is still hacked.

Sales will barely increase on pc if their is no pirating because most people who pirate games had no plan to buy it. Of course, i could be wrong but to pirate a game when you have the cash to buy it is pointless. Alot of games have drm that can be a pain or can take time to crack to play online. Torrenting files that have alot of popularity can take forever. You also cant play the game on steam which for some can be kind of a negative.

Who the heck wants to download 50-100 GB of data?

I like how rocksteady handheld piracy for their game batman arkham asylum. You can play for 10 minutes, but after a certain part you have to you use your cape to glide you are unable to and thus cannot pass that part.

have people forgotten that the ps3 mostly stayed hack free this entire gen? just a few years ago ps3 was hacked.
OpenGL  +   692d ago
Exactly, and in developed nations anyway there was very little piracy on the platform.
Tzuno  +   692d ago
Ps4 and 720 will be pirated is a matter of time even ps3 has failed in front of piracy in the end.
akaFullMetal  +   692d ago
The only reason the ps3 was even able to be hacked, was because their keys to the system were released by some disgruntled employee I'm guessing. Either way, had the keys not been released, then today the ps3 would still be locked down.
kevnb  +   692d ago
naw the hacker was that good. same guy who cracked the iphone. But anyway he works for facebook now lol.
seanpitt23  +   692d ago
Let's hope not
solid_warlord  +   692d ago
i predict a PS4 emulation for PC in 3 years time. Due to the nature of PS4 being a PC in a box. I foresee Uncharted being played on a PS4 emulator.
cee773  +   692d ago
Just like the OG Xbox lol:) it too is A PC in A box see how that turned out.
solid_warlord  +   692d ago
