agree with Golwar. All this does "net" is push Sony to send out a new console in 2 years rather than 4 years. They have no other way of staving off piracy with all of their encryption 100% known. Good article.

They can't really get away with that right now due to broadband usage caps in many countries so I wouldn't be terribly worried about it.

Yep, it wouldn't surprise me at all to see a PS4 go out to the net to verify authenticity of a game every time it starts. An offline mode might limit use to a few days or something...

I fear that the consequence will be a sooner release of the PS4 and that they'll be even more tempted to use online distribution only. There goes the freedom of choice, instead you get a monopoly.

WOW!

I was skeptical and figured they just found a workaround that ran rogue code in between checks. But no, they rooted the PS3 to the core.

I don't think they can tell if it is legit code running or not anymore.
WOW!

The tighter their grip, the more star systems that slipped through their fingers. Sony shares some blame for this. Hopefully this will teach the industry that keeping some openness with otherOS on PS3 helped their own bottom line.

Publishers should have cried foul when Sony removed otherOS, because it meant pirates would have reign on the platform. But no, as usual, when someone else's freedoms are trampled, others stand by and watch because they don't care about other people's freedoms. No, people mostly care about money, not freedom.

Well it's nice that I don't have to worry too much if my modded Xbox 1 dies and I want a new media center console.
