game sharing:explain jack tretton comment

SCEA’s President Jack Tretton even condones game sharing:

“You can send that content to four other friends for that initial investment,” said Tretton. “We want to get the game in as many hands as possible.”
“It’s not about generating profits at each and every interaction with the consumer,” he said. “I think that really offsets the argument that says, ‘Wow, that’s a really pricey system.’”

 

so what the deal about sharing?

Even so, why the hell would he say that? Not about profits... Hah! I'm sure those struggling indie devs would take issue with that...

while there was no formal retraction of jacks statement,,i think the only thing that changed is that sony says its ok aslong as you own the ps3 or its your childrens ps3.
Yo dawg I heard you liked quantum mechanics so I didn't do anything, and I did something at the same time.

hes talkin about the 10 buck games. if u game share warhawk or socom only one person can play the game at a time. if u play then whoever gave u the game has to wait 24hrs and vice versa. its in the terms of use. so u cant trade big online titles that allow u to play together. 10 buck games they dont care, its only 10 bucks

They did, it's the TOS that you agreed to and signed.
