Jack Tretton 'splains what he meant about DRM being up to third parties

Forums - Sony Discussion - Jack Tretton 'splains what he meant about DRM being up to third parties

Tagged games:

Any game that is made for PS4 that is physical goods, whether first-party or third-party, can go into a PS4 and play regardless of where it came from. The first player will play it, no problem, the second player will play it, no problem. What I was referring to was the online proposition. [The example was later given to me: If you buy a used disc from GameStop, you’ll have no problem popping that disc in and playing it from your PlayStation 4. The issue may arise when you try to jump online and play with other players. At that point, a third-party publisher may impose a fee or not allow that.]

The easiest way to explain it is — if you understand how it works on PlayStation 3, then that’s the same way it will work on PlayStation 4. No changes there. We’ve been out for six and a half years. It’s the same experience.

Doesnt matter most of us are here on this site every day ever hour so we don't really have time to play online..

He threw away the microphone?

This guy became my hero yesterday

OP. Only EA will have online pass... Sony won't... they confirmed that too.



Good its "online pass" nothing to do with offline single player. Thank you for the clarification.

Nope. EA ditched online passes. C'mon people, research is your best friend! I've had to say this 5 times today, already!

Don't you know how the model works on PS3? Same situation. Nothing changed. With EA giving up the online passes, it may even be less than what PS3 endured.



                                                                                                                                            

Where did the mic go? I did not see it land.

Rocket science O_o
