Good on Yoshida for saying it like it is. Overly dramatic, click based crap like this is why Sony or Microsoft doesn't include a lot of Youtube people in their press reviews for their console. Seriously, this is just so stupid.

Maybe that guy figured it all out.

Maybe back when I had a 33.6 modem the games looked like crap because of my bad network connection!

Oh wait, nope. It's because it was 1997.

So according to this video online infrastructure affects the resolution of a game that you can potentially play the offline portion of...? Anyone else thinking his 'birds' is just another word for his ass?
Gamingcapacity  +   516d ago
If the update will disable DRM then all the data files will still be on the launch console for somebody to expose. If they planned DRM it will come out. I'd be surprised id anybody finds anything.

Also if they did plan DRM like MS, I thought that you could use the console without being online and without the update. Can somebody confirm/debunk this? If it can then we already have the answer to if the day one update disables DRM.
EXVirtual  +   516d ago | Well said
You're telling me.
There are articles from February consisting of interviews from Mark Cerny and Shuhei Yoshida that the PS4 wouldn't include DRM. Why would Sony lie to the masses at E3, the biggest gaming event of the year? Yoshida even said that you don't need to connect to the internet to play the PS4 and you don't need a day one patch. Plus, the patch is only 300MB, much smaller than the update MS has (not hating on MS either, RTU is spreading BS all around).
If COD Ghosts is running at 720p because of network problems, then why are we getting KZSF as a launch title running at 1080[ native.
There's so much melodramatic FUD un that video, it's ridiculous.
Rich continuously spreads FUD and dumbass predictions. It's all hate with him. He even says mobiles will kill off consoles.
I'm glad Shuhei responded to this when he was asked, because otherwise, even more people would believe that stupid video.
Then he's like
'All companies care about is money' At the beginning of the video: 'This video was brought to you by Gamersgate.'

I called bullsh*t on that video the second I heard him say Microsoft's network wasn't ready. I'm no MS fan as all of you know, but Microsoft would sooner be caught dead than have their most important not be ready for launch. MS put everything they have into Live, there is absolutely no way they'd EVER let it falter with so much riding on it.

Then the icing on the cake was when Rich tried to say that Sony's patch is to disable DRM, something they've said since BEFORE the MS blowout that they didn't have.

Absolute utter nonsense.

Damn it Rich! Have quality control over your content!

Actually, he was starting to be one of my fav yt personalities. This video is just an appeal to emotion.. why do you have "please share" in the title of your video rich? You have never done that to your vid titles before. (To my knowledge)

This is troubling and I worry about the person behind the content. I hope he's not thinking of going into siding with fanboy mentality (bc a lot of his stuff talks about eliminating illogical biases when it comes to gaming).....

edit: I hope he takes down the video and uploads and updated one just to save himself from any further embarrassment.

He's generally a good guy.
But he got force fed false misleading information that got him in this mess.

He made a great reviews of the 2DS and the Vita.
and I would agree with everything he said in those videos.

This video he just made just came out of nowhere.

We already knew you had to keep the PS3 Disc for the PS4 to work the game. It was on their blog.
It would have been too easy, you would've have just rented the game then purchase the PS4 version for 10$ + 4$ (rental).

It certainly gave him some publicity in some regards.
Not good publicity, but more people got to notice him.

I'm guessing these "so-called sources" did not wanted to post that information on their Youtube Channel because they would've gotten the heat that Rich just got.
And I bet they never will post that information because they won't want to "damage" their own reputation.
Poor Rich got used as a scape-goat.

If the video is true or not, i don't know... but did anybody really expect Shuhei Yoshida to confirm that the video was true?

There is one thing about the video that's true... No corporation (Sony, Microsoft or Nintendo) give a sh*t about the users... what they want is positive PR and make the most money they can. Who believes otherwise is very naive.

This is probably the third video I've ever watched from that rich guy and I've had disdain for all of them. This one was by far the worst though.

At the February reveal, or immediately after it, Sony officials were asked about DRM and from the very start they said "It'll work the same way it works today", "It's up to the devs/publishers if they want to add it with things similar to the online pass".

Even if Sony did have DRM they definitely weren't "reacting to MS getting negative feedback about it". They said "No" well before the X1 was ever announced. On top of that we "don't have to download the day 1 patch to play our games". PS4 games will work without ever connecting to the internet.

The other thing that annoys me is that he keeps claiming the PS4 would've been "$499" with the camera bundled. That makes no sense whatsoever as the camera and PS4 together only add up to $460. In all scenarios the PS4 would have been less expensive while superior in technology.

The whole resolution relating to online structure and online network "being in shambles" is plain ridiculous all on its own. Killzone SF is 1080p 60fps online, yet "DriveClub, The Crew and Watch_Dogs were delayed because of a poor online network"?
Worst of all he's saying everything in a matter-of-fact tone.

Yosh: "So stupid"

Yeah, I agree.
LonDonE  +   515d ago
NO its because the video is STUPID and RETARDED! how can resolution of a game or graphics have anything to do with network infrastructure? the guy made so many dumb comments in the video and totally killed his credibility and he just regurgitated what he read online without any research and now must pay the price! he doesn't have any sources, he talking nonsense and is a total laughing stock now! he is a supposed core gamer, who games on pc and consoles like me and most core gamers, and yet fails to understand fundamental basic things about how games and games consoles work!

Seriously how on earth does making the game in 720p effect the network? the graphics are rendered locally in the console gpu and are not rendered in a cloud farm and then sent to the ps4, so how on earth can network problems determine resolution? even ,my wife know better and laughed when she heard the video! he makes outlandish claims with no facts to back it up!

Even if Sony has drm in place like xbox1, the fact is they removed it before anyone was any wiser adter seeing the shit storm by gamers, but Microsoft still tried to pull it off, which i repeat would have made gaming worse off for us the consumers! its because Sony didn't follow m$ that forced Microsoft to do a 180! the pre order numbers spoke volumes! this is fact, so irrelevant of Sony alleged drm the fact is they didnt go through with it, while xbox tried to force it on us just like kinnect! and only changed policy after PS4 was handing their ass to them!

I own and Game on all platforms, but after having a total of 7 xbox 360s red ring on me, and now this drm kinnect crap, i just cannot support a company as greedy as Microsoft and so for the first time i will not be buying all platforms at launch, and instead will make do with my wii u, gaming pc, and ps4! I love nintendo but lately some of the decisions they have made have realy ticked me off, i still support them because i love them, but one thing i can say in my opinion is that Sony has always put the core gamers first, and its why i love them and support them also!

Seriously you guys can thumb whore me down all you want,but i keep it real, its my opinion, and as adults we are allowed to differ in them! next thing i know some loser will most likely comment on my grammar because he has nothing of any value to say, who cares this is the internet! i speed type, and so make mistakes, as long as the reader gets the point of it, its fine!

He is wrong. Xbox's online isn't in shambles and a bad network connection WOULD NOT cause a game to run in 720P. Also, DRM would not cause network issues. Also, Sony announced that no on physical media months before the reveal.

Plus we ALREADY KNOW that Ghost is 1080p on PS4 so, his "sources" are late and wrong.

Day one patch shut off DRM even though Sony said that you can play your game fine without the patch. So whats the point of DRM? Sony sucks at DRM.

Sony waited to see the response of X1 DRM policies? Well they didn't need to wait long. The first hint of DRM people were going to burn MS to the ground. Sony had plenty of time to remove it before the final stages of the PS4
Serg  +   516d ago

Sony said there is no online only and 24h check in February, at the reveal event... 3 months before we even knew what MS was up to. There were several interviews with a couple of Sony officials all responding with "no" when asked about DRM.

All your pointless post is saying is, that you are on the same level as the jackass who made the video.
sobekflakmonkey  +   515d ago

you don't need to download the patch for the PS4, when you buy the console you can plug all your stuff in and turn it on put a game in and start playing, you don't need the update whatsoever to play games....so no....clearly there was never DRM...I think guys like Adam Sessler are upset over something completely different and it has to do with them being able to record video for reviewing games, there seems to be an issue with that right now, either that, or only a select group of gaming journalists are being aloud into this Sony Preview event, naturally people are gonna be pissed because it gives every other journalist an edge over them making it harder for them to attain readers intern messing with their lively hood, but thats about it, and GT seems to be nothing but excited about the PS, teasing stuff for the VGA's it seems.

Not trying to sound like a fanboy but I don't think that this is true. If it is then wouldn't someone just have to not update the PS4 and do some "hacking" to find the truth within the code? They wouldn't make it easy to find the truth. I honestly believe that the first day patch is to keep unauthorized reviewers from posting early PS4 content with all the features before launch. I may be wrong but till they are really exposed with sources it's hard to believe.

Exactly. DRM is the future, unless consumers speak with their wallets and refuse to buy products that incorporate it. Every company that sells products like that will consider DRM. I too give Sony props for not going that route, no matter what they may have had in mind before making that decision.
johndoe11211  +   516d ago
I agree with you on this. I'm not saying they didn't have it, I don't know but if they did (which I believe is possible) they have still earned my respect more than microsoft because they didn't wait to see preorder numbers before they decided to remove it, they removed it because their customers were against it.

Microsoft went about this all wrong. The way sony handled it (again, if that drm thing is true) showed them in a positive light and a lot more customer oriented unlike microsoft who just said "screw you" and tried to shove it down our throats.

Amen to that, Shuhei.

A little over a third of the way through the video, the guy says claims that both the PS4 and the XB1 will run Ghosts at 720p, not 1080p, due to network issues.

...Graphical fidelity has literally nothing to do with a system's network functionality.

Immediately after this, the guy goes on to state that, according to one of his 'sources', that Ghosts will run at native 1080p on the Wii U. And instead of outright denying this particular rumor, he basically says, "It's possible."

I stopped watching here, I just couldn't bear to listen to anymore of this drivel. This guy is so obviously full of bull**** that it's kind of funny.

I don't understand his last statement, if the PS4 was DRM focused, wouldn't it have leaked out like the X1 did? Plus, for a guy that does news about tech, i thought he would already know that you don't need the patch to play games. So if the PS4 was DRM focused, you would NEED the patch to even play it, like the X1. God... this gut is just as bad as MisterXMedia.

It's possible that publishers were told not to follow through with their DRM practices after the Xbox One DRM bombed and Microsoft's share price dropped. It makes a lot of sense that both Sony and Microsoft were exploring this option because it wouldn't make any sense for multi-platform games to have DRM in one console and none on the next.

It's really strange. A couple of game journos are freaking out quite a bit and there may be something going on. Sessler is usually a calm guy and his cryptic rants on Twitter convey that something is amiss.

Now if either of the consoles have some sort of hardware problem or online issue; it'll be all very visible to see. I hope that doesn't happen but something is afoot.

well, we all know Rich is a has no life, if you look at ALL of his past vids, he RARELY says anything good, its all hate with him.

God knows how much he hated on Nintendo and stuff... after all he is just another one of those guys who loves rumours and loves to spread them around, in the end it will either hurt him or hurt the companies that are not doing anything wrong in the 1st place

BF4 and CoD come out on launch and they are both focused on MP.

Online has squat to do with the game resolution. Servers only calculate position data and input data and nothing to do with graphics.

As for problems on launch that is probably nothing that can be avoided on either platforms. As we learned over the last few years online launches are always problematic.

Regarding his claim on Sony DRM and the day one firmware update disabling it, games can be played without the firmware update so obviously that claim isn`t true. We know what happens when DRM needs to be deactivated, that you need to download an update before you can play at all.

That guy when ever there is bad stuff about x1 he always brings in ps4 even tho it has nothing to do with x1 issues.

HELL NO! This dude just tells it like it is. He is just stating what his sources brought to him.
wishingW3L  +   516d ago
he's always been very pro-Sony but this video in particular is just speculation from his part based on recent rumors and "unnamed sources".

Sony fans are really blowing this out of proportion like always. Even if you go to his videos to hate and click disagree guess what, that's what he wants! For each view on the video he only gets more money.

no, he has never been pro-sony, he has always been pro-xbox and this video finally shows hi true colors, a fanboy of the highest order lol
