... I won't be buying an Xbox One.

And if Sony announces the same crap, I probably won't be getting a PS4 either.

I seriously don't see why people can't get this through their thick skulls. Everything has already been said by Sony. The used games policies will be up to publishers as well. However, you can play offline if you want to with no restrictions. And you can turn the PSEye off if you want to.

Rusty I don't understand either if you cared so much about it why not look it up? So many people still somehow don't know that Sony left DRM to the publishers. Geez

Sonic et al. I think that what SONY said is that the PS4 can be used offline. That right there says it all. Without online you can still play anygame you wish. No need for an online account.

Ergo, if you don't need to be online, then always on DRM can't be gamebreaking...

This, of course, is my own use of logics, feel free to use your own. But that is what that means to me. I just don't know how you can use antipiracy software if the machine is never online.

Greed is happening. Money can really bring out the evil in corporations sometimes. Microsoft wants all the money and all the control.
