Clarification on Playstation’s DRM policy
We all know about the huge applause and relief that followed Sony’s announcement about no new restrictions on used games and no online requirements. This is part of what made many people conclude that the Playstation will dominate in the next-gen (that, and the price, of course).
Now, there are articles popping up that there will be some DRM, depending on the third party developer. Let’s just be clear here – PS4 will have the same DRM set up as PS3. If a game requires an online pass, or is free-to-play, or whatever other business model, that will still apply. However, any disc-based game can be traded, sold, borrowed or kept.
So quit your panicking!
