They throw in this garbage to test market on the PC, if it goes a success they may follow up on consoles.

only problem is. This DRM was a failure on the pc and have since turned off the "always on".

where u guys been?

Screw Digital Restrictions Management. It doesn't work and only manages to screw legit customers.

The day full-blown DRM reaches the consoles is the day I stop gaming. I'm not going to pay $60+ for the gracious permission from Publishers to play "their" game. Either let me OWN the game I purchase or GTFO.

Considering the fact that there is no way Sony can differentiate between hacked ps3's and unhacked ps3's due to the lack of a mod chip, this might be Sony's last resort. Unless the servers are as unreliable as Ubisoft's, i dont see anybody complaining.

that's a viable option for them, I mean, not everyone can be connected to the internet all the time. That's not practical and why the hell do I need an constant internet connection to play games I have paid for in a console I paid for. That's fucking unfair.

I hope the dude's spewing BS.

3g 4 G connection that is always on. but in return you get charged a higher price for the system. but there is no internet required to game on the system because it's always on.

who helped ubi with their drm. Oh, well he is. He's just trying to secure his business by predicting this but am sure, the console makers are not this foolish.
