Yoshida: PS4 Online DRM Will Be Up To Publishers    

  Yoshida: PS4 Online DRM Will Be Up To Publishers
Added by garyopa on 31.05.2013

The truth is out, control on the new Sony will be in hands of 'publishers' not forced like via XB1

So the choice to use 'lockdowns' on the new PlayStation 4 looks like it will be up to the 'publisher' to decide on the amount of 'freedom' a user should or should not have with their new video game!

After weeks of Sony fans screaming on Twitter about their fears of XB1-Like DRM coming also to the new PlayStation 4, Sony has finally come clean to well part of the 'questions' that Kotaku had originally had asked:

1) Sony has previously said that the PS4 does not require an online connection. To be clear, is this true perpetually, or will the console need to occasionally connect online? If so, how often?

2) Will games need to be registered online in order to use them the first time out?

3) Will the PS4 games be able to be bought and sold used? Or will there be an online activation fee that essentially causes a used game to cost as much as a new game, thereby eliminating the relevance of used games?

So recently, Yoshida had this to say, which points to question #2 above, but it still not really 100% clear, just the fact 'publishers' make the choices, not Sony in what the user can or can not do with his/her 'game disc':

"At a roundtable this morning, Sony's game studios chief, Shuhei Yoshida, told reporters that any requirement for users to register a game online in order to play it would be left to game publishers. Sony won't require that." (Emphasis added.) Apologies for missing that during our attempts to clarify just how similar or dissimilar Sony's next-gen policies are from Microsoft's."
