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
Interesting idea...or instead of calling Sony direct have them set up a area on the Sony web site where they could activate the game.

Yeah that calling Sony part was more like an example... of how this Patent could be implemented and not really stop rented or pre-owned games... I mean the PS 3 has a deactivate system button on it..so you could still trade used games in on the PS 4 and just deactivate it from your system, and then somebody else buys it and they can play it now because you deactivated it... just would need some way to verify that someone deactivated the game before trade in or selling...but it could work

But in doing that you are kind of missing the point of why Sony is implenting it in the first place. It's so nobody can buy it used. If you could just deactivate it like that why even bother doing the research, and implementing it in the console? They are doing this to stop preowned games.

I'm all for it as long as they lower game prices as a result.
1. Games shouldnt all be one price, different prices for different games
2. Should be 29.99-49.99
3. Digital games should never be the same price as their physical counterpart
Agreed but you know these gaming companies/developers ain't going for that and Sony/M$ is going to try and have ice cream w/their cake and eat it too. I always have said that games should never have been $50-60 and should start out around $35-40 but the price drop would take longer to happen. Something needs to be done with digital gaming & downloads b/c the the downloading speeds & prices. Really they could knock off $10-15 with digital games though.

Yeah it could work if they went about implementing the technology in the right way but, they're going to do what they want anyways.

if that makes people return their games or movies bc of deactivation after a rental period, communicate parental controls with the console or player, and stop theft from stores(idk if rental stores exist anymore tbh). then wont they be able to license this to places like redbox, blockbuster or anywhere that still exists. why would you crush the rental industry when you just fixed their security problem.

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
This is true bit would be sh*tty if the used this sh*t.

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
I doubt it. Sony made this technology so most likely they want the cake from it.

No one said you can't sell it. You can sell it to anyone who would buy it, they just wouldn't be able to play it.

I must have really f*cked this w**** boy's bish. He's so angry he started to describe his own life.

Well, with that being said, enjoy your Friday night on Boxden, while you watch reruns of South Park, Fraiser and Mash. Try not to fantasize about me too much. Nerdy, lame a.ss w**** boy.
