I'm saying to the OP - Anything that happens on the ps3 now that is considered negative we gunna hear this boycotting shit. Lets just enjoy our system and play games :P I got the game... I played it online coop and I'll only use my account - no biggy to me.

Some people enjoy being raped. I don't.

I sometimes play games from 20 years ago, on the original hardware.

I think you better sell your ps3 and get an xbox... They said sorry :P

Uhhhh....What?

This is capcoms doing not Sonys.

 

No, it is Sonys.   Sony create the DRM options for publishers to use.

Twist it whatever way you want. But Sony isn't FORCING them to make games online only.

 

Sony created the DRM option for a reason.  There is no twisting, that is just fact, but its cool to hate on Capcom even when Sony is the one responsible.

just because Sony offer's developer's their own DRM does not mean that the software company does not have one of their own!

we do not know which one capcom used because they can use one of their own as long as it's in compliance.

for that matter capcom could indeed used both or multiple DRM's.

This is not the PC, publishers on PSN have to pick one of the options SONY give them, they cannot just make their own.

Every game on PSN has DRM.  Games limited to 5 consoles...that is DRM.  Cannot copy a selected game onto any hardrive and copy where you like...DRM.  People suddenly crying about DRM is hilarious.

 

I know of at least 3 options publishers have:

 

1. Content can be activated on up to 5 consoles as long as the purchasing account has a profile on the console, any account on a console can play it (most games).

2. Same as above except only the purchasing account can play it, you need to connect to PSN while the game starts but can disconenct afterwards, additionally only 1 PS3 console can play the game per 24 hours. (Final Fight: Double Impact, Warhawk, SOCOM, Gran Turismo 5: Prologue, Braid and others)

3. A one time download only, once you download it you need keep it forever because is no way to ever download again.



________________________________________________________________

Uhm, Kyliedog... that 5 consoles-thing is considered a HUGE plus by most people using PSN...


I can understand some games using option two though. I doubt Sony wants games like Warhawk and GT to be shared like crazy.

Option three is unacceptable though, unless the prices is like 1/5th or 1/10th of the usual price of a game.

like i said before 3RD party's can have their own DRM!

example:

Your access to third party content and services may be subject to third party terms and conditions which you should read and understand before you access those services and any complaints about those services should be made to the third party provider. All content and services purchased through the PlayStation®Store, including in-game stores which are part of the PlayStation®Store, are sold to you by us, including where you access the PlayStation®Store via a third party game or website.

3rd party can have their own DRM.

a good example of this is netflix they have their own DRM.

I was actually wondering when these kind of DRMs will get on consoles. On PC you can override such things, but on consoles you are forced to use it no matter what you actually think or want. I think next thing that is forced motion controls. "Use it or don't play." , that should be motto for consoles. :)

THIS IS NOT NEW.


This is not the first game with offline modes to have this either.

So what? Are you actually defending this?
