"HAHA, Public enemy of butthurt fannies. "

I look at it this way.

If it becomes exclusive to one console; you could conceivably get all those games on the one console, saving you money in the long run from buying two or three separate consoles for different games from the same publisher.

Of course a lot of people will still buy two or three consoles to play the games they want to play but not everybody is made of money. #2.2

They are apparently!

"(Note: Fans of Sony's rivals also have derisive nicknames, and yes, Kotaku will be covering those at a later date)."

Game journalism at it's finest! #1.3.1

Hmph. I'm not surprised in the slightest. While Sony got a lot of praise for not doing what Microsoft was doing and now Microsoft have completely changed their stance on the check-in every 24 hour DRM issue; one cannot help but point out that these companies made the infrastructures possible to allow for publishers to have these types of DRM in their games in the first place.

A lot of people are going to be a bunch of butthurt Barrys when the microtransactions really kic... #6

Gamers never stay true to their convictions. Xbox One may become a success, regardless of the outrage because the market slice they are going after aren't gamers.

They are going after the "Bro" gamer who only plays COD, Battlefield and EA games.

And still some people will buy it because of that. #1

*smirk* Big Brother is watching you play; stealing your data etc.

Well, at least you can turn it off or not even buy it. #11

Did Ubisoft not expect any fallout from delaying their currently finished Rayman Legends game until September?

I mean, it's going to be such an empty month for gaming. /s

*whispers* GTA V will ensure that game will firmly belong in the bargain bin. #15.2.1

DRM will still be on multi-platform games like Fifa, COD and Battlefield. Doesn't make sense to have one version of the game with DRM and one without. #15.1.1

Hah. The lack of DRM must've put them off. #15

PS4 will have DRM. Just not on their own developed games. They have left it up to the publishers' discretion whether or not to include DRM.

Besides, online passes are so last-gen. Now it's all about the "multipass". #2.2

Good blog. However, I believe they won because they are doing things that the Xbox One won't allow you to do.

However, I believe that multi-platform releases will have some sort of additional DRM attached to them, leaving it up to the publishers to decide whether or not to add that crap.

Don't wish to urinate on the parade, but I don't think we should all hold hands just yet. At least Sony games won't have DRM I guess. #5

Haha. For Sony games and exclusives; there will be no DRM.

EA didn't get rid of their online passes for nothing. Them and their publishing cohorts will still put DRM on their multi-platform games.

Still though. Xbox One got utterly destroyed. It was a massacre. #1.1.5

I think it's very smart. They can get to bury the bad guys and come out smelling like roses. I felt a disturbance in the force. It felt like millions of Xbox One pre-orders screaming and being cancelled.

Sony pulled a good conference but there are downsides to everything these days. Making this Gaikai system work will probably not come cheap but at least with PS+; you're getting more than just online play. #2.2

From the Capsule Computers website: "At a roundtable this morning, Sony's game studios chief, Shuhei Yoshida, told reporters that any requirement for users to register a game online in order to play it would be left to game publishers. Sony won't require that."

I am glad that Sony have decided not to follow suit with their own games and exclusives but I sincerely doubt that any of the multi-platform games will have DRM on one console and none on the next. I... #3

While I admire your optimism threefootwang, I don't believe that Sony would've had this system which would allow it without the publishers' knowledge or permission. Let us take an example like Watch Dogs or Destiny for instance. Both are multi-platform releases for the PS4 and the Xbox One. Now suppose that Ubisoft or Bungie have to have DRM in their Xbox One version, would they not have it implemented on the PS4 edition? On a brighter note, it's most likely that Sony exclusiv... #1.1.2

PS4 will have DRM. They can say that they have left it to the publishers to decide whether or not to implement it but Sony is merely disavowing any responsibility for creating the infrastructure to allow for it to happen. #1.1

They are correct when they say that the PS4 is going to be obsolete in a couple of years. I do not understand why anybody is accusing Nvidia of "sour grapes" when they actually know what they are talking about in terms of how quickly hardware becomes obsolete.

Only deluded fools believe that the "next-gen" incoming consoles are as powerful as high-end PCs. It's frankly pathetic. #46

We will see how many comsumers will take to the PS4 if/when they follow Microsoft's lead and implement DRM which is very possible. #34.1

There will be DRM on the PS4.

Have you noticed how game publishers have been largely silent on the issue of DRM? Think about it. Why would developers and publishers support a console without the DRM nonsense? Sony didn't patent their RFID model for nothing and I will be most interested to see if there will be the same amount of outrage over Sony doing such a thing compared to what Microsoft has gotten. #87

Christ. I thought I was the only one to remember Milo.

That was a pretty creepy concept though. #4.1

Didn't Nintendo do a similar sort of thing when they weren't performing well?

That said. It's a welcome gesture. If only the bankers would follow suit but alas. #38
