So basically you can buy, play, trade used games on the PlayStation 4. No additional registration fees, pay-walls or internet registration required.

Xbox One does not support the playing of used games without paying extra to do so.



Basically, or in other words, their "good" exclusives.
Bet, preciate it

Exactly as we've been saying here all along, and exactly as I said in the other thread on here today. The real question is, what percentage of games will publishers take advantage of the DRM? It's gonna be pretty damn high. Again, what they're saying is "PS4 doesn't necessarily require an internet connection to operate, unless you want to play 80%+ of the games that are released on the console".

It's a good way to dance around the issue, but it's confusing as hell.
of course you find a way to confuse yourself when its clearly written, no DRM unless the publisher add it like Ubisoft with U Play...seems clear as day to me.

kinect 2.0 is still watching you xbots, and we can borrow friends games on ps4. take the L Krazie...

this all sucks, but as usual, some very intelligent person or group of people out there will make ways around whatever teams of developers think up. There will be some sort of workaround for online checks, the same way Adobe made it so your computer will make sure your products were legit. Magically, some smart folks created a way for Adobe checks to be blocked by your system. Same thing will happen here.

There is no way in the world used games shouldn't be allowed. Imagine if car companies tied into their new car computers and said there can be no used car sales. once the original owner buys it and activates it, they have to have it forever. gtfo.

Thing is, that's probably a reality.. Can probably plug the PS4 into the HDMI in on the Xbox One.

I'm gonna have a super console.

This is a crazy bit of news because it's not actually new but Sony went ahead and kind of circled everyone back around to an earlier point they made regarding used games and DRM. Hence, the company is answering new questions retroactively and confirm that the PS4 won't have any built-in blocks against used games. Put that Angry Joe rant away, because you won't need it for the PS4.

Kotaku [via Maxconsole] had a few questions about the PlayStation 4 and its used game DRM as well as always-online functionality. Kotaku contacted Sony directly and a representative for Sony pointed Kotaku back to one of their own articles, reiterating statements made by Sony's top dog studio chief, Shuhei Yoshida, where Kotaku originally published this info back in February...

At a roundtable this morning, Sony's game studios chief, Shuhei Yoshida, told reporters that any requirement for users to register a game online in order to play it would be left to game publishers. Sony won't require that." (Emphasis added.)

Kotaku promptly apologized to gamers for not having caught it earlier. Kind of crazy...these witch hunts, eh? You kind of lose sight of important info that nulls and voids the whole witch hunt in the first place. Ah, crazy kids.

I'm betting a lot of people are feeling awfully silly for having missed such an important piece of info buried under all that Microsoft rage. I wonder if Sony will blame gaming media for not digging through their archives the way Microsoft blamed gaming media for their executives giving out inaccurate and incomplete info?

Anyway, this already makes it clear that if publishers want to DRM-up the PS4 they'll have to use third-party means to do so, which actually has nothing to do with the PS4 or Sony (e.g., sort of like how Ubisoft uses Uplay DRM for games on Steam or EA used to use Online Passes).

This clears up a few things:

1.) The PlayStation 4 can play games offline without having to be online. This was clarified the day of the PS4's reveal back on February 20th.
2.) Sony will not have any mandatory DRM for used games. You can buy, play, trade used games on the PlayStation 4 just as usual. No additional registration fees, pay-walls or internet registration required.
3.) If you so choose, you can play games from disc, download them from the digital store or remote load them. Sony doesn't mandate any method over the other for multi-format titles.
4.) Just for extra clarification the PlayStation 4 does not and will not require a constant always-on internet connection.


So basically what we have here is a collage of previous statements confirming Sony's stance on the gaming market: They support you, the gamers.

Keep in mind that we're not totally in the clear regarding used game DRM for any console, including the Wii U. Third-party publishers may use the opportunity to go overboard one way or another and so, sadly, just like Master Chief and his unending f!ght with a bunch of aliens that all look alike, the f!ght isn't finished.

While I don't know if it's still necessary to keep tweeting #PS4NoDRM at Sony, it certainly wouldn't hurt to use NeoGaf's momentum to direct the attention toward third-party publishers. I doubt they'll like the sentiment because of greed and all, but so far Sony seems to be building up the PlayStation 4 to be as good a console as the PlayStation 2, barring greedy pulbishers.

And just so we can finally end this argument of comparisons: The PlayStation 4 will not have built-in used game DRM like the Xbox One. #DealWithIt
