its hard for me to believe that microsoft would charge for it and that sony wouldnt,  somone had to break the bad news for the "new" generation consoles first...it just ended up being microsoft.

Yeah true thats another thing im guessing is the only way M$ was able to put a blu ray player in the XO was to break the bad news (like a deal they made) but I hope not.

Supposedly Sony was going to do the same for used games but refrained from doing so after the backlash MS got. That's why I'd wait for all the facts to be put on the table before saying "This company is the winner and this company isn't". Until the systems are out, every single stupid rule can and will be rewritten to appease the masses~.

thank you, ive been saying this since feb 22nd!

sony hasnt even shown us a console yet but we are supposed to believe that in november the PS4 will be released?

imo a "best case scenario" was that the feb 22 "reveal" was just a premptive move to get microsoft to tip their hand so that sony could adjust to all the public scrutiny without absorbing any of the blame for things like used game repurchasing & mandatory online play etc.. and then depending on how bad the public outcry gets they can always still either scrap the idea alltogether or decide to adopt it as a "new industry standard" without having to seem like it was (sony's) idea at all...and even if it was, it will still be perceived as a win win for them.

thats my theory anyway.

I have been a loyal fan to SONY and their product, TV, Cameras, and PS for a long now.  They can't do this to us loyal fans and gamers.  Do not ruin this for me SONY. NNNNOOOO DRM.

i agree, and not just soley for the fact if/when sony reveals that they too will be charging for used games, we will also have a documented record of all the fanboys and their superiority trips to boot!.Robot LOL
