PS4 used/borrowed games?

15 replies 613 views Edited Jun 8, 2013

Sony has confirmed that you do not need to be online to play games. Confirmed

Xbox one requires online to see if you are doing either.

 

So how would they know if you were borrowing or renting a game?

They would have the system read a specific game ID for that disk and link it to your account. If you barrow a friends game it will come up as its already linked to another account. This is not saying that this is what they would do but Sony has patents that they wanted to use this kind of method to keep track of games. But personally I could care less about the whole new vs used game issue.

But how would they be able to find out if you don't need to connect to the internet? Unless they pull a microsoft and say "You don't need internet, but you need to connect to the internet"

I don't think they'd mind, as long as they get a percentage of the price of the game itself.

One patent had where it could read and write to the disk but I find that to be a flaw and people would exploit that method.

Haha no not rich just know when to shop for a bargain. Almost all my games are new except for like 10. I say new but doesn't mean $60 for every game. When I go to gamestop I try to buy new because it supports the developers where used does not.

I'll gladly purchase games at full price when devs take the time to perfect there game and stop half-assing it and taking out a chunk of their game and releasing it as dlc *cough battlefield metro last light cough*

Gamestop likes it when you buy new games at discount with credit received from trading games its win-win for everyone including developers and publishers. But not for long.
