SO LONG, USED GAMES

BACK IN DECEMBER... A post left on Pastebin back in December also referred to the PlayStation 4 as Orbis, calling it a codename in the same vein as Microsoft's Durango. The system specs in that post differ significantly from what Kotaku has heard, and the lack of a hard drive by default goes against the idea of downloading full games to the system.

The Pastebin post also mentions that big name developers like EA were disappointed by an Orbis much less powerful than Microsoft's next machine, so there's a chance that it's the story of an earlier prototype that didn't make the grade. We've reached out to EA for comment.

Just like the next Xbox/Durango, we've heard from multiple sources that the Orbis will likewise have some kind of anti-used games measures built into the console. Here's how our main source says it's currently shaping up: new games for the system will be available one of two ways, either on a Blu-Ray disc or as a PSN download (yes, even full retail titles). If you buy the disc, it must be locked to a single PSN account, after which you can play the game, save the whole thing to your HDD, or peg it as "downloaded" in your account history and be free to download it at a later date.

This sh*t cant be right.
So u tellin me u cant rent a game before u buy or or sell it after you have bought it. if this holds true and Microsoft doesn't follow suit, you already know what im switchin too

MS is also rumored to have this same technology as well...so no swtiching needed...

and no you can rent games you just won't be able to access all the features (No Mp, no DLC, certain things like customization locked out)...unless you buy the Online Pass then you get a code that unlocks eveyrthing... but you will still be able to rent games (only be able to play Single Player campaign and do nothing else)

I really dont believe anything except maybe the parts about the CPU/GPU. The backwards compatible thing could be true also

But not letting you play used games/rentals/borrowed games?.....not happening, to much money made in that industry for it to suddenly just get cut off.

there' no money made in that industry for the Dev's/Publishers though... only the retail stores that sell used games...so thats' the exact reason why it could suddenly get cut off...

next generation games will be going to $70...

if this is true then the only thing that will happen is people will grumble about it then still go out and pay what ever these companies want for the console and then 70 for the games

you have games with zero replay value and take 6 hours to finish and what happens if the game is sh*t i just paid full retail for some sh*t i cant even return

and we just gonna let these guys bend us over and take it

Money does exist however through promotions those companies run for these game companies. If Gamestop wasnt there to get preorders down, promo the sh*t out of games by offering giveaways and all kinds of extras.....That equals lost consumers/finances and such.

Devs/Publishers might not be making money off the direct sale of used games, but they ARE making alot of money off of companies like Gamestop period.

IF this is true...you guys aren't reading it fully... You can still trade in games with this method...just if someone bought that game since it is used they would be locked out of all the content EXCEPT for the single player cmapaigns... (everything else will be unlocked with the purchase of an Online pass)

True and False...

the Devs/Pubs make all their money off new games within the first three months of sales of the game as new... Pre-orders guarantee NEW game sales so yeah they make money off Gamestop...but once it goes used they get ZERO money from Gamestop and any store that sells used games/systems...

only when it's new which is why all this push for preorder content and Collectors edition packages nowadays...sell as many as you can first...because after three months you won't get much more money from people

THE NEXT PLAYSTATION, AT A GLANCE
Is called, or at least carries the working codename, "Orbis".
Is scheduled for a Holiday 2013 release.
Won't be backwards compatible with PS3 games.
Will lock new games to a PSN account as an anti-used games measure.
New games can be bought either on Blu-Ray or downloaded.
Current specs are an AMD x64 CPU and AMD Southern Islands GPU
YOU CAN GO fu*k YOURSELF SONY......if this is true
