yeah bullsh*t. if that means rentals have their own encodings or whatever, expect two things:

1. price of rentals go up (since sony COMPLETELY would control that)
2. people would rip the rentals and somehow burn that version

i said this a few days ago in the ps3 vs xbox360 thread but i guess people didnt catch on to what i meant. Now for all you people saying its a rumor and it cant be true just remember one thing, buying a video game system doesnt make it law to allow u to buy used games or even rent games. everytime u buy a used game the game company doesnt get a share of the money plus they dont get a reading about game sales. renting a game the game company only makes the initial sale of the game that the renting company pays to get the game. Although it sounds like a stupid move on sonys part dont make it sound like its impossible. This is what happens when a company decides to use a brand new format that nobody else is going to be using until the end of that yr or even the beginning of the next. for a system thats gonna probly run 500 for a core system u can expect sony to implement every measure that would block piracy for as long as they can.

i wouldn't say that its a LAW to be able to rent games but i would say that its a taken for granted given that people expect to be able to rent video games for whatever system they're played. video game rentals have been going on since the nintendo days in the late 80's and now sony wants to reinvent the wheel and pull a moneygrab and try to clamp down on it? i wonder where this would fall under fair use. sorry for not reading thru the whole thread but basically a game played on one system wouldn't be able to be played on the system of a friend? how do they expect to survive doing that?

They cant do that, because how does a video console tell the difference from rented games and purchased games. Because Blockbuster, and other places buy the games themselves.

ive been in the modding scene back before dreamcast was getting ripped using the neopocket and back before thrill k!ll was getting leaked as a beta and final, so i know whats going on and whats possible. whats not possible is how predictable new technology is. anything is always deemed impossible when a company brings a new format to the table until proven otherwise. if they decide to roll out such a format that does what they say it would probly rely on something that would carry a blank sector on the disc that will write the ps3's serial number onto that sector by the ps3s laser which could in some ways be considered a burner but with 2mb limits. just because ur not pleased with the rumor dont speculate its not true because when a company releases statements that suggest 50million dollar budgets just to start development on the new system, then sony would probly do whatever it sees fit to make sure that developer gets his payment.

my mans right^^^

look what happend with PSP...they made this update (v2.0) that was supposed to be "unhackable" and it was said that you would never be able to play burned games or ISO's on a v1.51+ and they still got around that sh*t...

just like they'll get around this, I'm not worried.

LOL!!!!!!


No fanboy here that I can seeee.......


Any way, this is going to be real fu*ked up if Sony goes through with it. I'm trying to decide what to get as my second console (since the 360 is a must cop). Its still close between this and the Revolution. This won't help Sony at all.

It aint gonna happen. They would lose a lot of money. What If my playstation breaks.....then I gotta get a new one and all new games?????
It would be suicide from a business standpoint. What if my friend buys a game and brings it to my house so we can play againnst each other? They would lose so much business if they do this

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

Nah not really if the PS3 has a harddrice or in internal memory all it would have to do is write the info there and check it against the disc you put in.
Sort of how you cant disconnect your PS2 network adapter and connect it to another PS2 with re-installing the software.
Rest a.ssured if they do it.....it will be an easy hack to get around it.

Rumor Dead



"I would like to clarify that this is false speculation and that PlayStation 3 software will not be copy protected to a single machine but will be playable on any PlayStation 3 console," said a Sony Computer Entertainment Europe spokesperson.
