Interesting. I don't do digital, but my friends won't be happy with it. I'll wait for an official announcement though

I don't have friends to share with =[ but as long as it's not a pain to transfer to a new console if ever mine were to break or what not then I'm fine.

I don't think it's much of a pain.
As long as you're signed in to other's PS4 you/they can play it just fine.

That's for ps3 . It says " One-time license fee for downloads to up to 2 console systems that are associated with the purchasing account ''

Same goes for knack .


Except that there is a new feature where you can put your account in any console and play any game from your account as long you signed in .

That's what i understood .

That's exactly what it says, you still get the 2 activations but also a new way of signing in to any console to play.

So many people on here are too quick to jump to conclusions without reading first :/

Slightly disappointed. With emphasis on slightly.

I don't really share my digital games so this wouldn't
affect me so as long as it would be a simple/ easy process to transfer my license to a new console if anything should happen to my ps4.

Its basically the Xbox360 DRM for downloaded games, and since I had Xbox but not PS3 this gen, it is status quo for me when I switch to PS4.

Hmmm, I'm not sure how I feel about this. I mean it doesn't affect me at all as I'm planning on purchasing retail discs for all my PS4 games (except F2P, PS+ and some indie games that I'll download).

I just don't understand why Sony would change it from PS3 to PS4, where now the purchasing account has to be signed in on the 2nd system to be able to play those digital downloaded games. But I think this only affects a very small percentage of PS4 owners anyways...
