seriously...

the ps3 would either

A) have to burn something to the game disc signifying the game is used
B) network all of the ps3's together in the world

not going to happen.
you're dumb, software gets registered, they can easily do this
the question is will they, not can they

its proven that sony have workarounds in their systems ... its what fuels the interest in the system the most ... sh*t you could play online with ps2 backed up games ....

the psp was out for a few months and its fully hacked ... like i wouldnt stress all this at all

smh.

how would your ps3 realize that you are using my game that I played on my ps3?

It can't unless they communicate somehow.

Why do you think that Microsoft made it so Office and XP need to be activated?

true if there is no internet connection you COULD require a code given by telephone/online to unlock the game but you could still use that code many times and each individual ps3 wouldn't know the difference.


think before you type

LOL @ this bullsh*t. This would be stupid, and very, very easy to bypass. You guys should have learned from Windows Genuine.

They talking bout RETAIL games. Basically the first system that the game is played on is the ONLY system that will be allowed to play it. I don't know how they would impliment that tho because wouldnt the ps3 have to burn/write some sort of system key or something to the disc to "lock out" any other ps3 system
to be thats pretty damn gay if u ask me

what happened to "try em before you buy em"

some smart a*s 12yr. old kid probably already got a hack to get around this sh*t...either way, ps3 & xbox 360 will be hacked & you will be able to play burned games like before. may take awhile, but it will and can be done.

Actually, I just thought of a very good way that this could possibly work. But I'll keep my mouth shut and let Sony figure it out, if this is true, which it's not, because it's not possible the way that they explained it. But like they say, anything could be bypassed... so...

similar to final fantasy online whenre you have a registration code that comes with the game and the code can only be used 1 time
its simple and also simple to get around like most people already know

exactly.. applies to online only.

windows activation was also easy to get around

Thats what i was thinking. it would have to be registered on the internet probably i would think. unless it like burns something like the serial number onto the disk. i havent heard about this from any major sites and i guarantee this wont happen. i am getting a xbox 360 anyway, i saw it at walmart. the games on ps3 cant be that much better looking than what the xbox 360 does. i will guarantee that also. plus the ps2 system is ugly and if they go with that controller, good lord that thing is hideous. it looks like a toy.

Thats the thing. For the PS3 to know that the game is used, it either has to write to the disk (which may be possible since htere is a rumour that dame disks will have a sector that can be written to), or send the information to the net. If it does the internet route, you could just disconnect your PS3 from the net.

With all the money Sony is putting into the PS3, the consumer backlash will be far greater when it hits stores.

I was planning on getting one of these, I hope it's not true. I'll just wait for the public reactions after it's release.

I know Sony is hell-bent on curbing piracy, but this could be a step over the edge which could prove to be detrimental.
