Sony Patents Depressing Pre-Owned Games Blocking System
 

 

Sony Computer Entertainment has applied for a patent that would eliminate the used game market, via a system that includes a physical tag inside game boxes to check who’s allowed to play it.

Sony’s system would see a “permission tag” provided alongside game releases, with the console then checking the disk ID with this tag to see whether or not the user is allowed to play the game, based around unspecified “terms of use” attached to the sale. It’d work as a self-contained system, with no internet connection required.

So Sony could, for example, only allow a game to be copied to the HD of one machine, or could perhaps create some sort of buddy system where you’re allowed to loan it to someone for a period of time. Or, if Sony wants to initiate self destruct and take out the entire games industry with it, it could only let games be played on one single machine, k!lling the used games market in one shot.

However else GameStop can be hurt and maybe forced to change how they business I am all for it. With the patent, would this mean XBox won't be able to do it?

Not the same.

Anyway, it will be interesting to see how Sony fanatics take this, especially since this is not a rumor.

Just because there's a patent doesn't mean it's going to be used...although I wouldn't doubt it but it's not a 100% sure thing

Rumors. Too many. Can't wait for real info. If most are true especially the sh*tty ones. It would confuse casual gamers. Ps3/360 all day

What's your point? The article wasn't posted on Boxden and now it is. Deal with it.

It's not a rumor. Sony has filed for this patent. How is that a rumor? Don't be stupid.

You can check the patent here if you'd like -

How is it 5 months old when the patent wasn't published until the 3rd of January this year? And what exactly does this have to do with Microsoft? Making false claims and bringing up a company that's not related to the topic says that you're hurt.

I try not to overreact to patents. Anyone who follows mobile patents will tell you that half the sh*t these companies make up never really come to fruition. They're obviously thinking about it, but when it's all said and done and they go through R&D, countless meetings, and make the final decision I highly doubt this will be implemented. Sony would damn near commit suicide.

I don't see a problem with this, wanna play pre-owned game... buy a pass.

Hopefully the money goes to the publishers and not Sony

That is the dumbest and most submissive logic ever. You mean to tell me every single thing that you've bought, used and consumed in this world was 100% new? You have no problem with this whatsoever?

This patent could be implemented if they did it like this...

if I bought GTA V on the PS 3 that game would be locked to my system...now if I wanted to sell it to my friend, then my friend could call Sony and give them my unique Console Number ID or something (nothing that gives up privacy), and Sony could remove the game from my system on their end and open it up on my friends end...but this way whatever my friend pays for the game goes straight to the pub/dev...same thing with buying a used game from a store...when you trade a game in to Gamestop/BB or wherever you have to give them your unique number (Or they don't take the trade) then whoever buys the game for whatever price can activate on their system upon purchase by calling Sony... yeah it would be a HUGE hassle but it's possible workaround to still play Used games but make sure the PUb/Dev get's the money they deserve for it
