No, Sony is still being evasive.
ok you have got to be trolling at this point, cuz sony were pretty unequivocal about the major points. sure the publishers might DRM their games themselves, but they already do that on current gen. it's not at a system level; there's really no dancing around that.
You know, I wouldn't have to repeat myself all the time if you people paid attention. What Sony said was self-applied. Everything they stated was very carefully crafted and constructed. There were no broad and sweeping statements. Certainly nothing that could be held against them legally.
1) They said the same thing as MS as it applies to their games you can trade them without fees, let friends play them, etc. They did NOT say bupkiss about what publishers may or may not do.
2) Note they did not state that for multiplayer games you now have to pay for it same as MS Gold. How do you think that would have went over at their press conference.
3) They say you don't need to login once every 24 hours? What about beyond that? They also said nothing about advertising, data mining, etc.
So in fact there's a whole bunch of shit they haven't said that they can still do to give it to the consumer sans lube. So yes, until you see EVERYTHING
in black and white, the final costs, etc. etc. etc. I wouldn't be patting Sony on the back just yet. And the fact that they've snuck a few things in and are still so evasive flashes a big red WARNING!!!
sign IMO. Just wait until the other shoe drops. There will be more shit coming down the pipe with this, bank on it.
