Let's say you spend several years creating the best game ever. Coding, debugging, coding some more. You spend thousands of dollars to upgrade your computer to the latest hardware. At the end of it, you decide to sell the end product. You do not protect your work with any kind of copy protection (DRM).
The first day, you manage to sell one copy. The next day, you sell none, because everyone already has your game...
How do you think you'd feel?
You guys are petitioning to the wrong people. The Third Party Publishers are the real complainers. YOU SHOULD BE petitioning to the government about the issue. Third Party Publishers are twisting Sony and Microsoft arm to destroy the used game market. By dealing with this buying First Party Exclusives is the solution. Took me a while to think about this. Sony is not the bad guy nor is Microsoft. Wait till E3. That petition campaign should be aimed towards the government not the Sony Executives. I will be buying Last of Us and Beyond: Two Souls after all and inFAMOUS; Second Son. All game publishers are PRO-DRM maybe.
So a Neogaf member has started that what can only be described as a pleed to Sony to not follow in Microsoft's footsteps and this is how he is doing it... and making it work.
Go to twitter and message those who need to know that this move is unwise

I hope you know that is not Kaz Hirai's real twitter account.
Then who's account is it, and why has he tons of followers?
Are you serious?

Sony execs are now joking about this DRM stuff:

I take this as very good news. I don't think they would be joking about something like this.
