    But won't the games themselves have DRM?
    Sim City 2013 DRM? Diablo III DRM..... Online codes..... Just wondering.... :unsure:

    Since the PS4 is has no DRM.

    I doubt it. No company would be that stupid. If anything, the only DRM we'll see is online passes.

    Online pass is probably what we'll see at most. I mean, PS4 itself is already a form of DRM. That is why you only see stuff like SecuROM and StarForce on PC.

    Now it is possible to implement region lock per game. Atlus did it with Persona 4 Arena.

    Yes, there is DRM in games. It'll be more and more prevalent in 1/1.5 years too.
    What happened to your signature? It's way more awesome.

    Here's my concern. I freaking love the current PSN set up.

    I make a comfortable wage and have plenty of free time but my brother doesn't. With the PSN I get a license for two systems and every time I buy a game he gets it too using my shop account. I really like being able to share games with him because it keeps us close despite being opposite ends of the world and I feel good doing him a solid since things are easier for me.

    I'm hoping they don't strip that down to 1 system per license or something but I don't remember what was said. Some games don't let you do that but currently they're rare (like FF14 which obviously has pay accounts you can't both be on at once).

    Probably not in ways we think right now. And we probably wont start hearing about it till (if) piracy becomes a concern again.
