Re: PS4 E3 Announcement Confirmed !

Jan 8, 2013
The comment itself I'm taking with a grain of salt - however his small remark during the opening when discussing all of Sony's trademark sectors (including Playstation) is what hinted at some big news to come.

Other then that, it's been known for quite some time that the next gen consoles were coming this year, if not for release, then at the least for an announcement.

I heard Sony filed a patent for embedding RFID chips in discs to prevent people from playing used games.

If that is so and PS4 is any more restrictive I will not buy PS4 for now.

DRM and region locking is bad as it it, adding RFID chips and what not is 10 steps backward and a restriction on my freedom as a user.

I already find the PS3 good enough for the games in fact, I wish there would be a lot more 2d games like Rayman and LittleBigPlanet for the PS3.

The next Xbox filed a similar patent a while ago, Sony may just be ensuring they can follow through if the option is given to them (keep in mind, neither of them can afford to implement such a system if the competitor isn't doing the same).

The PC has been doing it for years, so it's not really 'new' or unheard of. I'd be fine with it, only if it isn't restricted to the extent of completely being locked out of a game on another console (if I bring a game to a friends house), or atleast give a quicker alternative to allowing usage through my own PSN ID, rather then having to create my account on the system.
