GearNuke: I’m sure we’re all aware of the #PS4noDRM and #PS4UsedGames campaign by now. Of course we are, it spread around the world like wildfire and even little girls had posters with those hastags attached to their lemonade stands.
Didnt they already say it wont have DRM?
They said it will have DRM but it will be up to the publisher to use it how they see fit.
also last generation Sony said games will be region free but it will be up to the publisher guess what all games are region free i think it will be the same thing
@wantedboys - Not entirely true. Some games did in fact have region locking, Persona 4 Arena for example. Though the majority did not, which was great.
@wantedboys There is literally only one game on PS3 that's region locked. Research the facts before you start spouting shit next time.
@ReZoN: if you dont require internet connection at all to play the games, then how the hell will that work? It will be just online-passes as this gen.
Heavenly King - Except not. EA already dropped their online pass requirement. I'm sure others will drop it as well.
we know for sure that sonys exclusive ps4 games will not have DRM.
Your avatar pic and name make me giggle every time I see them. Well done!
"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 initially read that as meaning Sony won't require that [drm as a system wide integration] but it's true that you can interpret it as it meaning it won't be required [on Sony's first party titles]. Personally, that comment from Yoshida isn't 100% clear imo but I hope you are right.
And also, Mark Cerny said you can play any game (single player mode) without an internet connection at all.
is this a good thing or a bad thing ?
It's also acceptable to me to have to pay for the online pass on a used game. Contribute to the servers etc, I just want it to be simple to play my games
High end gaming PC and Wii U here I come!
Mark Cerny said you can play PS4 games without internet connection at all, so no DRM.
"I’m sure they are breaching EU laws now" I was actually wondering if this DRM/Trading business has been in breach of any of our laws. I know the EU is trying to get through a digital media trading law.
I really don't like how the phrase DRM is being thrown around in the context of this movement. What is being asked of Sony is really only a small portion of DRM as it relates to used games. When someone says no DRM, that technically means that there'd be nothing stopping you from making a 1:1 backup copy and putting that backup in the disc drive and playing it as though it were a regular copy. That is no DRM. There will still be lots of DRM on the PS4.
just some things to anyone that thinks no internet means no DRM http://gamrconnect.vgchartz... link to a post about a patent for a rewritable layer within a normal disc that could be used as DRM and http://techfreep.com/rfid-e... rfid chips embedded into discs this is an old one coz i can't find the newer post a few mouths ago about the sony patent but that is also referenced in the post topic of the 1st link
Stop spreading fud and bringing up stuff thats already been debunked months ago. MS is the only one confirmed to be using technology that renders the disk useless on other machines by locking the disc content to your live account.
ok if it been debunked fair sorry for the misinformation i was only pointing out that just coz a console can run off line does not mean it could not have DRM company can find a way around things
