Post Conference Interview with Jack Tretton

No limits on first party titles as far as used games go. Publishers are free to do what they want as far as DRM.

I'm not an EA fan, but I would like to remind people that EA announced less than a month ago that they were abandoning the their Online Pass for current and future games.

EA finally figured out they make more money including everyone and getting micro transaction revenue as opposed to locking out a large portion of the audience arbitrarily. That or they were working with Microsoft on implementation of their DRM specifics and knew what was coming. Oh well either way this serves me well as a consumer, it's nice to have some competitive choices for a change.

And yes, multiplayer on PS4 will require a PS+ subscription. But has other have already pointed out, the value for that service is very good. Lots of free games, discounts on games, a good feature set overall...which is more than I can say about XBL Gold.

Yeah, PS+ is the bar all online services should be measured against, amazing value for the money.
