PlayStation 4's price and DRM policies not an answer to Xbox One, Sony exec says

The PlayStation 4's price and DRM policies were welcome announcements to those watching Sony's E3 press conference, but they weren't created in response to the same policies for Xbox One, Sony VP of Worldwide Studios Scott Rohde told Polygon in an interview earlier tonight.

"I literally have goosebumps right now, because that was always our plan," Rohde said. "It's something that we believe in. We know gamers come first; we know what they want. I was personally overwhelmed with the massive explosion on Twitter, with everyone essentially begging, 'Please don't do this Sony, please don't do this PlayStation!' It was so hard not to say, right away, 'Well, we never were going to do that, but now let's have a little fun and announce it in a fun way at the PlayStation press conference.' (PS4)

Sony did it for the REAL gamers. Not because Microsoft was gonna do it. Microsoft's plans were outright evil and controlling.
ThatCanadianGuy514  +   445d ago
Pretty much.I mean, damn, they said as much back in febuary but people were gobsmacked at MS's audacity and tried to drag Sony into somehow.

Oh well.I hope those people are eating some humble pie.
blitz0623  +   445d ago
As it shouldn't. This shouldn't even be big news if MS didn't go anti consumer. Now Sony looks like heroes. Not saying they aren't.

I'm glad with the news, but let's be honest. Sony has ALWAYS been about gamers and this should have come as no surprise

i agree ms fanboy chumps said microsoft wont do this wait until the reveal then ms did all the drm crap and such then them same fanboys tried to say sony was gonna do the same. im like you idiots gave ms the benefit of the doubt and they are the most grimy company but you didnt believe me or sony that they didn have the slavery bs drm crap.
Angeljuice  +   445d ago
The thing is, everyone was talking about 'publishers pressuring Microsoft and Sony for DRM', however that is not what happened.
Microsoft dreamt up the cloud idea and all the DRM and then TOOK THIS MODEL TO THE PUBLISHERS!!!
They wanted to create a paywalled garden where they could lock people in and control their funds more easily. At no time were they under pressure from the publishers and even Activision thought it wasn't a great idea (EA and Ubisoft loved it).

This all came about when Microsoft saw that it's console was doing well and decided the team in charge should be replaced by their 'money men' to maximise profit.

Let me say that I am a multi console owner. I play both systems. I tend to play my multiplayer games on my Xbox due to my friends mostly gaming on that platform. I've always said that I prefer the Xbox's online functionality over the PS3's in terms of user friendliness, etc.

HOWEVER... This is all going to change now. I am furious at what MS has done regarding their used games policy. To add to it all, the console is going to be priced higher.

The PS4 will be my go to gaming platform from now on, as long as their online is useable and functionable. The only thing I'll need to get used to is the controller.

@Donnieboi. Yup, I agree. The moment a software company like Microsoft went into to gaming industry, I felt that one day they were going to apply that same ole 1 OS per PC deal that they have with Windows to console games, just for the $$$. They seem to be leaning towards that non-disc based games for the future of console gaming. I'm glad Sony stayed traditional with theirs.

Price probably not, DRM policies, come on. Don't lie, you know damn well that a response to the backlash MS got. You made that clear as day. This was a very good choice to make, but don't act like MS had nothing to do with your choice of words when announcing it.
Dunpeal  +   445d ago
dude, if you read the quote he says they chose to have a little fun with it at the event, but DRM was never going to be an issue they just chose to address it at E3 because of the shitstorm caused by MS
greenpowerz  +   445d ago
Not to mention Jack spent a few minutes bad mouthing MSFT at the presser and then Sony released video further talking Sh!T.

They knew they were going to have a bad E3 from their point of view and offerings and MSFT's unexpected stellar E3 presented them with a no brainer. They had 9 hours to go to the back up plan, with MSFT leaving them no choice.

I form this opinion based on Sony not having new IP's or doing stage demos on PS4 hardware with already announced Ips. Sony's presser had a bunch of fluff with no new Ips to show they claimed they had in abundance.

Sony's exclusives didn't match MSFT's graphically most likely the reason they focused on 3rd party games that were most likely shown on PS4 spec PCs again. I read even PS3 fans complaining about Sony only demoing 3rd party games(Unless PSN games)

Lol, This guys has been running his mouth since the original Leaks about the Xbox One requiring Kinect and online connection and blocking used games. He denied every single one them and said it was just wishful thinking from Sony fanboys

Then Sony did the reveal in February, and he spend his entire time downplaying the specs of the PS4 and claiming that MS will have "Dual GPU"? or some sh!t like that.

Then Microsoft revealed the Xbox one and guess what? Rumors were spot on, Kinect required, so is online, so is DRM for games.

Then he moved on to an even more absurd level as he started telling people that Sony will have the exact same policies as MS with the Xbox One. And that all PlayStation fans are being "so naive"...and guess what?

He's dead wrong! anyone surprised though? Nope.

And now he's basically saying that Sony went back in time to february and re-did all the interviews to make it seem like they've never had any plans to do gamers dirty.

I may be biased, but Final Fantasy XV and KHIII were enough to blow my freaking mind off. It's been 7 years since KHII, and Final Fantasy XV (which were rumored to have had help from Sony's first party studios meaning it's more than likely it's a PS4 exclusive) is looking like it will finally saved Square Enix and restore tha Final Fantasy name. That, and oh, you know, the indie support. I'm pretty sure indie devs are highly respected for their creative and unique games, and having them on the PS4 just makes it even better than it already is.

I never said they didn't. I said their choice of words. It was very clear it was a response to MS announcements. They could have said "Hey, you can still lend your games and don't need to be online". Instead they said "PS4 won't require a connection every 24 hours or any type of authentication." That's a clear jab at MS.

Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not defending MS in any way. They deserved what Sony said and I'm glad Sony had the balls to call them out in front of millions of people. But for them to say it wasn't an answer to Xbone, is a bold face lie. I respect them for calling MS out, but I'd respect them more if they said;

"It was a an answer to Xbone, because we actually care about gamers. We want gamers to have the right to do as they wish when they purchase a game, instead of us controlling their use".

Why? Because maybe MS would get their head out their ass and realize they screwed up big time. Obviously the community outcry wasn't enough, so maybe if it came from their direct competitor and the community, they start to see the light.............maybe.

badz149  +   445d ago
@xPhear: what will be different even it they DID taking jabs at M$
both the PS4 and XBone were not designed overnight and both have taken a long time in the design department before being unleashed to the public.

the XBone was designed with DRM in mind thus the console is not able to stream games off the bluray disc like the other consoles because it was DESIGNED to run games from it's HDD like a pc for DRM purposes!

Sony on the other hand, didn't have any such plans for DRM thus only designed the PS4 to improve upon the PS3 and address the weaknesses of the PS3 thus what we get is a faster BD drive to improve the reading speed compared to the PS3, an easier to developed for console due to it's x86 architecture, a single pool of an unprecedented 8GB of conventional GDDR5 RAM which most devs are already familiar with on pc and support for indies!

I honestly think that M$'s policy on XBone has caught even Sony by surprise just like any other people out there because what M$ is going to do is unthinkably EVIL! thus Sony didn't address the DRM and used games issues during their Feb 20th event assuming that things will go 'as usual' too this gen around seeing as the Wii U is the way it is! after the M$'s reveal, people started asking Sony about their stance in this issue and not long before May 21st, EA also announced they cancelled their Online Pass policy...people were curious but I think (my assumption, of course) Sony was just starting to come to realization that M$ is shooting themselves in the feet! Yoshida's reaction when asked about the matter kinda proven my theory IMO.

http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...

man...holding out for the perfect moment to deal the one-two blow to the competition is not easy and Sony has received fair share of criticism for not coming out in the clear regarding the issue but man...I understand! If it's me...I'll definite be doing the same thing! what better than to announce it while the whole world is watching? 1 word to summarize this...OWNAGE! (sorry that's not even a legit word LOL!)

So that Twitter hoopla actually did make a difference in a sense. Really glad to know that all this DRM stuff was never in their plan & that the announcement at the conference was some friendly banter.

I find it so funny that for the past few weeks game journalists were making assumptions that since Microsoft was doing this DRM stuff, so would Sony. Even though ever since they revealed the PS4 that the days after they were crystal clear that they weren't gonna do it.

Today i was proud to be a gamer on the Playstation & they proved to me that i was important in the life of the Playstation brand.

Just like Sony's new slogan....i do feel that Greatness awaits.

I'm pretty sure Sony did it in response to MS. Which is why they were so unclear in the beginning and not providing much info. They wanted to see the communities reaction, the sh#t blow up in MS's face and then swoop in as Gray Ghost and save the day.

Of course a humble statement like this will make them seem even more of the good guy.

Well Sony, even if I don't believe you I still applaud for your decision to not implement this tactic.

Good show.
Parapraxis  +   445d ago
I think it was highly calculated and honestly shrewd and smart.
They played MS like a fiddle, especially if you look at their surprise unveiling and obtuse comments on DRM.
They definitely knew what publishers were pushing for, and I suspect MS thought that Sony was in line with them regarding next gen.
They are playing a huge risk/reward situation here. EA and Ubisoft could potentially pull support, but I think after todays showing they know that if they were to do so, they would lose what will be the larger console market going forward.
maniacmayhem  +   445d ago
I hear ya, but I don't think EA or Ubisoft would ever pull support from the PS brand.

The sheer amount of 1st party studios that Sony has held on to or acquired over the years already spoke volumes of their commitment to gamers. But it's great that they had a plan from day one and have stuck to it. Now it isn't so much Sony stabbing Microsoft as it was Microsoft shooting themselves in the foot.

Also Sony really did turn the PS3 around and it truly was a marathon for them. Not just a sprint. But they are taking that momentum and throwing it behind the PS4. Yes they showed a lot of multiplats today but they have all the studios working hard on 1st party exclusives. I am truly excited for the PS4 and will be getting one on day one. Until then I still have some PS3 games to look forward to including The Last Of Us. I can't wait to get it on Friday and really dig into it.

MS is trying to do way too much with Kinect. Their conference was kinda weak filled with technical problems with audio. Decent amount of games shown but not the heavy hitters, and of course Mattrick, he's the American version of Nintendo's Satoru Iwata. Don Mattrick is a grown man with an child's mind running MS gaming division.

As predicted they are copying Nintendo to a T trying to focus on a mobile dominated casual market with slightly overpriced hardware. The hardware is decent from what has been released but by all reports it will be 1 third slower than the PS4 (1.23 TFLOP to 1.86 TFLOP, which is about a third, I know where people get 50 percent from).

If I was MS I would drop the Kinect device, knock $100 and get rid of this ridiculous used games policies. I don't mind always connected, I think of the last time my consoles were not connected to the internet had to be have been in the 90's. MS used games policy and price is going to bury MS in the first year. Bring back Seamus Blackley and Ed Fries, those guys knew how to design hardware and excite gamers.

@hollabox

Xbox 1.23 + 50% = PS4 1.86 TFlop

PS4 1.86 - 33% = Xbox 1.23 TFlop

Both figures are correct, it just depends on which machine you start the comparison with.

The PS4 is 50% more powerful than the Xbox, the Xbox is 33% less powerful than PS4.

Anyway, thank you Sony for not breaking under pressure, you stood up against DRM just like Nintendo, and took the gamers side, in return we gamers will gladly support your console. Thank you for helping us win this war against publishers, at least for one more generation of consoles, if xbots support the xbone DRM will be more probable for everyone next time around, just like free online play is now gone, all because xbots made it seem like it was perfectly fine to pay for online play.

Lets deduce wtf happen with MS. They are a publisher. They had a hackers dream in 360.
360 was also RROD & jtagged so much that many units sold were replacement units.

So there's motivation.

Add pubs.....surely they were pushing for DRM right?

But this Sony presentation made me wonder - what if Sony got to them first and asked say EA & Actibitch to play along with MS aweful policy. Then Sony got back its place as hero of gamers.

I love the outcome.....but how could MS get it do wrong unless they were assured they had the support of the publishers?

Maybe the pubs after the backlash aborted and Sony either found out or was truly going this way anyways.

I just can't see how MS can get itself out of this without looking like total copy car horrid asshats!

No it justifies it for you for many others it is a waste of resources, that could be better spent on a better gpu ect.

Your competition is more powerful, cheaper and more consumer friendly than you. It shouldn't be possible to screw up a console as badly as this one has turned out.

If the xbone didn't have all these anti-consumer restrictions, you wouldn't see the ms brand being abandon like it currently appears xbox gamers are doing.

I have a smart tv, i don't use the apps, why the fuck would i buy a game console for apps.

When 8-10 yr xbox live members write the console off your in serious trouble.
