Orth's comments have done more than whip up the easily stoked rage of the Internet, though. They've also supported whispers that the next Xbox will indeed require users to be constantly connected to the Internet to play any games – including single player.

Yeah, the whole "always connected o the Internet" thing is insanely stupid.

Ps4 isn't much better,all drum stuff is there but not required to be used. So any game maker can stop your used games or such

Just watch both companies get rid of these controversial systems in their consoles when sales are low.

...What are you talking about? Sony already confirmed that the anti-used games tech won't be included in the PS4. It was one of the first things asked by most news sites when the PS4 was announced.

So we all sighed with relief... until they announced that the PS4 DOES contain the technology to block used games, but that it's up to the developers to utilize it if they want. Which... just flat out sucks. So Sony won't be blocking used games, but other developers (i'm looking at you EA) might be able to? That's... not winning me over, Sony.


Well, I don't know if this is entirely true but Sony already has the patent for it, pointless to not use it.

This Orth guy really wants to force change in how people play games. No way I'm a Xbox now because I live in the country side with limited Wi-Fi and I can't buy anything on the internet.

I'm sorry, the moment you use Tom Preston as a reliable source of information is the moment you should take a step back. It has been announced, and could be found on many gaming websites, that the PS4 will not block used games and that the technology was patented for other purposes, not for the PS4.

They might have even had a system to block pirate games/discs in mind, or it could be for Blu-Ray drives in general (since Sony own the rights to Blu-Ray). It might even be for Microsoft, considering the possibility that they might want to include a Blu-Ray reader in the Nextbox. Microsoft are looking into a system that installs a game onto the hard drive and then tags the disc as 'used' once it has been used once - which is possible giving the tech that Sony patented. Microsoft could be using a modified version of Sony's Blu-Ray reader to block used games and that is what was patented.

Well I don't know about Sony's plans to block content, but if this "always online" thing proves true, I'm gonna take a wild guess and say the PS4 will win the next generation... or the coming generation will be a MASSIVE FAILURE for everyone, meaning the PC MASTER RACE will win. Nintendo STILL can't get third parties to buy into their system. Sony doesn't seem to have anything that remarkable for the PS4. And Microsoft could be going full-on DRM mode, which isn't going to stop the pirates, but it is going to hurt the paying customers. <.<;
