But PlayStation 4, for all we know, might function just like the Xbox One does when it comes to your game discs. Nobody wants to say yet because they believe that the response will focus too hard on what game buyers are losing – the unfettered ability to rent, lend, and resell discs. What Microsoft and Sony need to sell is the idea that restrictions on used games are a byproduct of efforts to improve the gaming experience, either with online connections or disc-free installs.

I think Baji's hit the meltdown stage :laugh:

"for all we know" said during a hands on analysis with the Xbox One.

Xbox One will allow a fee to unlock used game.

Lets see how Sony plays it card. It Sony does same, no PS4/X1 purchase for me.

Baji is just upset that there is something bad that could be said about the next Xbox iteration. So he is looking for something that will make the ps4 look bad. I am surprised there hasn't been a post from him saying something like: The XboX uses 1w less power than the ps4, so after 50 years you will have saved 10$ on your hydro bills.

Sony has this next gen in the bag if they just do a few things right. Free online, used games, and sticking to what gamers really want.

There is a difference between blocking and charging a fee. He doesn't say that there won't be a fee. He also says 'my expectation' meaning he doesn't know for sure.

Or may be I am using the same article from Wired that Audio and others are using to troll Xbox threads to draw the same pointless conclusion when neither company has said any such thing.

How are we "trolling" Xbox threads, we are just posting what other people are saying about the new Xbox.

Trolling would be creating a PS4 bash thread like a child just because you don't like people speaking bad of Xbox.

Was just using the name they had on the green back ground of the new console.

Xone, and X1 does sound like a cool abbreviation. Odd thing is when I hear Xbox One, I think of the original xbox :(

Agree, not sure if sony will force used games to work w/o fee to try and get customers away from to MS, or if they will join the crowd to try and force it on the console industry.

The article that is talking about fact from Microsofts mouth and conjecture about the PS4 by the article writer, you created this thread like a child just because someone was bashing your precious Xbox.
