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.
My point is it's year-old news that everybody already knew.

I have a problem with people buying used games because its $5 cheaper and giving 100% of the money to Gamestop rather than the developers/publisher.

I also have a problem with Gamestop buying used games for consumers for $10 and putting it right back on the shelves for $30.

Developers deserve to get paid for their work and if this is going to help stop studio closures or the potential for sequels then I fully support it.

Again, the patent wasn't published until the 3rd of January this year. I'm curious as to why you think "everybody" already knew about this?

That's besides the point. The topic has been created and discussion (and PR defense mode from Sony fans) will continue. I know you hate that but oh well.

PR defense mode? Son, it's a rumor that's open to discussions. If they make it so that you can't play used games, oh well, I'm slightly fine with that, so long as it's the way that Kotaku pitched it last year.

No insult. I was telling you not to be dumb since it is a confirmed fact that they did indeed patent this technology to block used games. That's what the article and patent says.

The patent is not a rumor, sorry. Maybe you're confused as to what the topic of the article is.

True. Just was saying that its a rumor if they're going to use it I hope they don't but could see them doing it. GameStop & piracy(which is worse)

No, the patent isn't a rumor. The rumor is that Sony will actually implement this into the PS4.

We good.. Only some slight rain and snow flurries in the forecast.

Then again, we'll probably get 2 feet with that forecast.

The article doesn't mention that the patent will be implemented into Sony's next system. It confirms that there is a patent in existence and then goes on to hypothesize how the patent could be used. They don't make mention of the Playstation 4. You sound worried.

well they aren't using it in the PS 3...so then if it's not the PS 4 why is this article even relevant?

I don't know if they are using the tech in their next system. That's not the point of the article. And the article is relevant because of the patent and how you Sony fanatics acted as if your beloved company would never wrong you in this way. It certainly seems like they are taking measures to ensure they cut into used game sales. You sound worried too.

This is a action to be able to sue in the future, doesn't look like they would implement anything like this. Sony was in deep in 2012, I doubt they would risk further loss.

I don't know or care either way if they do or not use this...I don't really buy used games...I do like Gamefly but if that's not an option anymore because of this then oh well i'll just buy the one or two games a year I want new so no biggie to me...

I'm just saying you keep acting like this is a given fact it will be used on a Sony gaming system...when in reality it might never get used at all... that's what I keep saying...everyone else keeps saying it's a rumor because of this fact that it might NOT ever get used...

MS has patents that allow for some fu*ked sh*t as well...

i'm far from worried i'm not a Sony fanboy...just a shareholder....

I guess I have to only comment on MS threads from now on

I'm not worried. Like I said, I wouldn't care if it was implemented like previously reported.

That's what I'm saying. Half these n*ggas on BX have a whip that they copped with 90k on the odometer, but wanna sit on a high horse about a $60 game. fu*k this sh*t, PC all the way next Gen. Pay nothing.
