talking sh*t? You realize I posted this rumor last year right? Of course it's a possibility and I can definitely see it happening.

Couldn't you just trade the tag with the game?

Idk man, if this is the future of gaming I think I'll be putting down my controller. I love capitalism but the constant nickel and diming from the gaming industry is just becoming ridiculous.

Maybe I'll find another hobby, movies or something.

i think this will implemented in the new systems. and i hate it but, it is what it is. we have games this gen that are implementing that online pass BS and their sales were not affected. i know this is at a new extreme level but its coming.

this is wack & shouldnt work PERIOD!!

I buy a game. I own a game. as simple as that
wtf

and this is when a petition needs to be started. Funny sh*t is I never bought a used game in my life. I was the dude who didnt really cater to putting other people's games in my system since NES.

but this is just wack. DLC released the same day games are released. now this.

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.




It works by supplying a contactless RF tag with each copy of a game (NFC?), which can (independent of a network connection), remember if a game has been tied to a different machine or user account previously. The system checks with the tag before playing the game.

I suppose I should say that this doesn't mean PS4 will, for sure, restrict second hand games. This would not be the first time Sony registered patents in this area and then did nothing with the tech. In fact I remember a patent fueling rumours prior to PS3's launch. The decision would be a business one, not one based on technical feasibility. This system would be relatively expensive to implement vs network-DRM. Although it could have the double effect of limiting piracy - at least until pirates could hack or reproduce the 'rf tag' system.

Might as well buy a box, you'll get the same no-game experience without the needless spending.

Seriously?

If you BUY something, you OWN it. You can do whatever the fu*k you want with it. Sony would commit suicide if they ever even hinted at implementing this.

GameStop doesn't rip you off.. You don't have to sell your game to GS.. But you do bc your game collects dust and bc it's not a lot of hassle.. If not, keep the game for years and never get anything back for it.. Which would suck. If I can get 35 bucks back for a game I've already played and beat, I will never complain... And usually I can.
For real, that dude even had me thinking WTF.

This means the consumer has to be extra selective about the games they purchase. Furthermore, these devs better start releasing demos for everything.

Just because you bought a PS3 doesn't mean you OWN it. When you buy a gaming console or a game that goes to said console. You are only being LICENSED the console/game. You bought a copy of the game, and the right to play said game on said system. Other than that, you have no rights. If you bought a copy second hand(meaning Sony/MS didn't license it out to you), Sony or any company for that matter has the right to deny you the ability to play it. They just haven't acted on that right up to this point. The same can be said for the movie industry.

You post a nearly year old quote from Trenton, that has nothing to do with the patent, and then you repost the patent article. Tell me, how exactly does that make the patent article "5 months old?" Some of you try so hard to look smart and can't even do that properly.
