    Who's getting a PS3 ?
    You? (*points finger*) You ?

    Read this...
    Full article here:

    Registration required, use login "883d1vkznqfrmo2@jetable.net" and password "blabla"

    This is old news but I don't recall reading any topic about this.
    Anyway, what would this mean?
    • No renting
    • No second-hand games
    • No borrowing or lending
    • If you have two PS3 at home, one for your brother & one for you (that will probably not happen due to the price of the PS3) you have to buy all games twice, one for each console!

    WOOOHOOO!



    Are YOU (*points finger*) still buying a PS3?
    Please tell me Sony are NOT GOING TO USE THIS TECHNOLOGY!

    I have been a big Sony buyer in my life, Everything is Sony from my 2 Plasmas, my Reciever, my 3 Monitors, 4 Sony DVD players, the list can go on and on....however they lost me on the MP3 war due to their "technology" ....even though everyone was like "don't get their stereo equipment its not worth the grand I spent...I WAS loyal...I am done...the company's ego and buisness habits are too much. I won't be getting a PS3 and this is the first time in ....shit I think ever...I have owned every system since the NES days and won't be getting a PS3 even if FF7 gets remade. I'd done with the company and its time to find a new comany to supply me with all my digital needs. I plan on RENTING WII games just like I rent a lot of 360 games....Sony lost my $600 a long time ago.

    700 euros for a console (in Finland at least) and you can't even buy used games? Sony's target demographic appears to be Bill Gates and since he already has a 360 I don't think PS3 will do so good.

    It was ages ago that Sony confirmed that they will not do this.
    ...yet...
    They said nothing about not doing this in the future.

    I've never heard that, and I followed this rumor like a hawk. And I'm gunna have to say thats false. Because Sony said ""PlayStation 3 software will not be copy protected to a single machine but will be playable on any PlayStation 3 console" which would mean I could line up 5 PS3's and play it on everyone just like the last. There is no licensing system, and online downloads can even be transfered to other PS3's under your login name.

    I heard about this months ago. Something to do with an advanced DNAS. This would instantly kill sony in the console market. A lot of the games shops make loads of money from second hand games, they don't have to sell sony products. Sony thinking of doing something like this is anti piracy got OTT. I think now they've decided that their still doing something similar but allowing the game to be played so many times on different consoles.

    Its not going to be any different than renting/borrowing a PS2 game. The patent is old. Ps1 old. They already said its false that it will be used in the PS3. Read the earlier posts. Although, nothing stops them from putting it in the PS4 :\

    LOL well it's hard to know who to trust when Sony I don't think has said anything official minus one lady From SCEE but I think I read the (You can play used games but not online article at maxconsoles...could have been filed under rumour but again it would be nice to read an official report stating this is a. False and B. the concept will never be implemented. IF I remeber right there was a war between DVD and a concept called DivX which I believe was backed by a company called Sony. The original Idea was that you can buy a DivX movie for as cheap as 5 dollars and only play it 1 time..or within a 24 hour period then the disc would be garbage. This kind of digital media control and the purposed concept of locking a game to the console just seems...tyant like...they want to make it more of a hassle to play your media then it should be worth.

    Because I know a lot of people can't be arsed :

    The article is dated July 10, 2006.

    I'd already heard about it and can only understand. I mean, it's Sony, after all, lol.

    But if Nintendo did that as well? There would be a lot less purchases and a lot more roms in my collection. I buy a LOT of things used.
