E3 2013: PS4 Used Game Restrictions 'Up to Publishers'

Post by S7 Sticky on Tue Jun 11, 2013 1:53 pm

Hmmm not so limitless after all
Sony has confirmed that the digital rights management of PlayStation 4 software will be up to third-party publishers. Speaking on GTTV, Sony's Jack Tretton stated, "The DRM decision for third-party games will be up to publishers."

This clarification comes one day after Sony's E3 press conference this week, where Tretton stated that the PlayStation 4 "won't pose any new restrictions on the use of PS4 gamers." He continued, "We believe in the model that people embrace today with PlayStation 3."


Publishers of PS4 games, then, can do what's already done on existing PlayStation software: Limit or lock content behind online passes or redemption codes (or opt out of restrictions altogether), which differs from Microsoft's limited licensing of Xbox One software.

It's the same as it is now. Plain and simple. Exactly what he said.

So basically any game that previously had an online pass will be DMR restricted and probably more. Lol not so different from the Xbox.

No DRM limits on PS4. Online passes, sure, but that is the way it is now.

For instance, with a game like Destiny...you have to have a persistent online connection to play, period. Doesn't matter if you are on PS4 or the XBone. A lot of the DRM complaining comes down to the "Once every 24 hour" mandate that MS has built in. If it wasn't for that this whole thing wouldn't matter at all.

True it doesn't effect me directly at all. But it does effect a lot of people around me. Probably 50% of the people who live in my town CAN NOT get highspeed internet. Also, the service men and woman getting sh1t on and I don't like that ether. It's almost a matter of principal. I just don't like the policies MS is imposing and I don't feel like swallowing the pill (even though I still might).

@ OC - DRM is not quite the same as Online Pass. Especially with SP games and lending games to friends. Drink all the kool-aid you want.

Both you and OC are against Microsoft as a company being strict on requirements and limiting developers choices though right?

Depends. I am against the worst case scenario that could happen. It also could be very alarmist and everyone get to share games, and there will by puppies, and cake, and rainbows.

I am also against over controlling big brother type of policies in general.
