I dont blame SONY for seizing the PR moment, but they hedged after the fact.
The exact quote was that the PS4 would "not impose any new restrictions" with regards to used games. Post-conference interviews they clarified they wouldn't be implementing any additional anti-used-game features into the platform. But they never made any claim of banning DRM schemes from their platform.
Anyone who thought Sony was somehow going to ban publishers from using any kind of DRM didn't think things through all the way.
What's DRM, and what's just an online game? Do people think Sony should force developers to have single-player modes and offline play for all titles? That may not make sense for every game. You think you're going to be able to play the console MMOs offline?
I'm not going to get mad at Sony for not doing the impossible.
