Just an update on the DRM restrictions, Sony have recently announced that the PS4 will be able to play your games without disc on any console.
One of the major complaints about the DRM backflip was you have to now change out discs to play different games if you wanted a physical copy in your bookshelf, PS4 has managed to fix this without restrictive DRM policies.Another was sharing games with a family member who is overseas or interstate.. They can now login to your account on their PS4's and play your games.I think this is very smart business wise cause now hotels, motels, holiday destinations will possibly purchase PS4's for their hotel patrons who can play their games from anywhere in the world.I have seen many posts about people saying when your on a work trip your not going to play a console, these people obviously have never worked for a company which requires them to travel.You dont always go to great holiday destinations with awesome weather where you want to be outside 24/7, You can't always spends hundreds or even thousands of dollars to visit local places of interest and enjoy the destination.Sometimes you just want to relax and play a game.. There are many reasons, its why hotels have cable tv.But if you travel a lot your not likely to pack a console into your baggage, but with this option it made the PS4 much more customer friendly for those who travel and have access to internet at the locations they travel.All the huffing and puffing from people about the DRM and PS4 already had something just as good without the DRM restrictions.. Feel free to try explain how awesome it was going to be now,
They're limited to digital copies only, the Xbox One was going to allow you to share everything regardless of how you got it. They're not close really. Now with the disc changes the Xbox One will also limit it to digital versions only as well from all the reports people have been posting.
I like how the video tries to make it sound like it's the same level of sharing when it's not since you're not sharing any of the games you got via a physical disc, you also have to login to their console with your own account. That's not how it was going to be on the Xbox One, they could use their own account and access your games. No sharing of account info, and why would I share my account info with someone, even my friend? Specially when at the end of the video they say it's only one system at a time so your friend can just login and kick you out if they wanted to be a dick. That's another thing the Xbox One was going to do different, since each friend was using their own account while it was going to be limited on how many friends played your games at one time you were never limited and could never be "locked out" of playing a game you were also sharing.
But hey, for those who still don't seem to know the details of what the XB1 was going to do then the video does try to make it sound like what the PS4 will allow is the same thing, when it's not at all.
