Used Games DRM Rumored for PlayStation 4

According to well-known video game journalist and G4 TV show host Geoff Keighley on the latest installment of the TV show, Bonus Round, he has ‘sources’ that state otherwise about no used games having DRM on Sony’s PlayStation 4 games. DRM meaning “Digital Rights Management”. For those of you in the dark about the whole DRM mess with all the next-gen consoles, basically it means that gamers won’t be able to buy and play used games without paying a fee. Originally, Microsoft was the first to actually announce that there may be some sort of DRM with their latest console, Xbox One. You can only imagine how upset people got about that. And with that, everyone began to run towards Sony with their next-gen, the PlayStation 4. But based on the following statement from Keighley, perhaps Sony will travel down the same path as well.

Keighley made the following statement: “…The one thing that is amazing to me is that right now we’re not hearing a lot from the game publishers about what their view is on this. The console companies are becoming the bad guys. And, you know, Microsoft is getting beaten up a lot on it. Sony, I think, has been seen as this kind of white knight so far that’s not going to restrict used games. Based on some of the things I’m hearing, I don’t think that’s entirely true, because I can’t see publishers allowing one system to do one thing and one do another.”
We will only know for sure come E3, which is only a couple weeks from now. Perhaps at E3 all these rumors of DRM on Sony’s PS4 will finally be laid to rest. I for one, cannot wait to see. ‘…To DRM or not to DRM, that is the question.’
