So just to get opinions from other Playstation fans, I have been reading up on Sony's new thing against second hand gaming. Now I am a true Playstation fan, I have had one since I was young with the PS1 and I love them way more than Xbox. While I am not big into buying used games I love trading them in, which this new no second hand gaming would lower trade in values if not get rid of them entirely. It's either no playing used games or having to pay a fee to play from what I have heard. Now getting an Xbox would also mean me buying a Blu ray player for the collection I have gotten up over the years, but there is no point to me in having 20 30 games and only playing 5 to 10. So the question, would you get an Xbox if Sony went through with this and Microsoft didn't?
Same exact RUMORS in 2005 before the PS3 came out. ...did it happen?
The site cites Sony US Patent #6,816,972, which is for "a device and method for protection of legitimate software against used software and counterfeit software in recording media." Specifically, the patented technology would verify that when software was inserted into a "machine" (read: console), it was registered to that machine. If it couldn't, the technology would prompt the machine to shut down, preventing the software from being accessed.
The latest rumor, generated from several patent sites, claims that Sony has secured a patent for a disk technology that prevents the use of used, as well as pirated, software.
A story is making its way around cyberspace today at lighting speed, with the worrying message that Sony is planning to prevent people from playing pre-owned games on their PS3.
A few days ago we reported on a rumor that suggested that Sony could be using a new DRM (Digital Rights Management) system to prevent people from playing second hand games on their PS3. Sony has now commented on the rumor, confirming that the newly patented DRM system will not be used in the PS3.
"I would like to clarify that this is false speculation and that PlayStation 3 software will not be copy protected to a single machine but will be playable on any PlayStation 3 console," said a Sony Computer Entertainment Europe spokesperson.
So there you have it, it was all rumors, but we kind of knew that already didn’t we…
All I wanna know is if PS4 will have GG45 connections? by technology default the video,RAM, and processing power are all going to be amazing. even down to the look of it. but we need Compatibility with Cat7a patch cords. I'm using Cat6a shielded now and it's the limit as far ethernet speed is concerned. We hit the limit in consoles that have RJ45 connections. this will put the P$4, lol, on par with the capabilities of PC's. Anyone disagree, I thought not!! now it comes down to the video graphics card to be able to hadle all the demands the Cat7a cable is requiring. And lastly the Processor better be some crazy piece of work to be in charge of all of the components of a system like this, that would needs to sustain superior Gaming like never even dreamed of.
and also the HARD DRIVE has to be SDD and the RAM at least 16GB.
The cooling system must be able to keep the machine from overheating with ease. (hopefully it's not loud)
if any hardcore gamer can tell me what is missing, I'd be happy to hear it.
No more hopes... No more.
Oh god..... he's back
Also..... omg that video actually got me excited!! Can't wait for e3 this year, going to be massive!
Edit: However thinking back i've decided this is unlikely to be the PS4. Sony lead said himself he was going to let microsoft go first just recently in an interview, so it wouldn't make sense really..... unless that was a ploy to throw people off. Hhhhhmmm either way I see Microsoft gaining further ground on Sony in the next generation of consoles, Sony are simply out of touch with gamers right now.
This is the 3rd thread we have about this.... keep it to one thread please... this isn't reddit where people can vote you up or down aka karma.....
Mod moved this here from the MAG forum.
LOL more rumors.. im going to wait till the sony 10 yrs plan is up which is nov 2014..
The PS3 was released in the US & Japan in 2006. Ten years from then would be 2016, not 2014....
No, ps3 was made in 2004/2005 then released 2006 and didnt hit some places till 2007 /08. the development yr is counted as the 1st yr. not the yr released on the market.
2005..2006. 2007.2008.2009, that 5 yrs.. 2010, 2011,2012, 2013 2014. That 10 yrs .. Sony said they had a 10yr plan.. lets keep that in mind..
Nope. That's not how it works. Sorry.
that how it work dude. Alot games take 3 years to make a nd have been on the market for 1 yrs. your say thing game is 1 yrs old. its actually 4 yrs old. Development of anything starts on paper not on the store shelf.. The clock starts when it start with development not when it hit the market.
A ten yr cycle plan and a ten yr public marking plan are two diffrent things man. Lets not confuse things.
That's like saying that even though I was born in 1987 I'm really 34 years old because my mom thought about having a kid since she was 18 years old. It doesn't work like that.
what you tlking about dude. i said when you make aproduct the development yrs are counted as well. if where start a project they will ask how long you been working on it. and you reply we havent started..? They will ask how much development cost, they will ask how long have you been planning this.? and say you i havent planned it. Guess what you... just lost a deal?
Now if i have planning a developing this thing for 2 yrs. and give number of i have ex 400$ spend in development, and they ask what could what do sell it for, i say 600$.. they say those are good number in your development of 3 yr project.
It has nothing to with your date of birth. i dont know why you would say something so out range when talking about how buisness do buisnees.. Anyone will tell you a products age start in development( on paper) not when it hit the shelf . becuase they have to do the cost and profit before it even hit the shelf. shelf life and development life are two diffrent things.
Everthing made had a projected sales to meet before ( these are called development cost). You cant do that on whim slapping product together and stick it on the shelf and say this our 1st yr. The yr something is developed or planned.is not the same it debut onthe shelf. some item take yrs before it hit the market shelf dude. The car you drive have been in development production for yrs. On the market it might 1 yrs old 2013, but it been in development for 10 yrs. so that make it 11 yrs old dude.
your acatully trying compare your birth date of birth to a way a product is develop, ???
If that is what you want to believe, fine, but it isn't correct. As you can see no one else is agreeing with you.
The 10 year product life cycle, does not include its development time, you keep making that assumption/mistake.....
