Fans Beg Sony Not To Enforce Restrictions On Used Games
Just like with every other rumour Microsoft managed to stir up, fans have taken to the Internet to express their displeasure with a DRM restricted PS4. This comes after a rumour yesterday that suggested Sony would follow Microsoft’s example and restrict used games in some manner, with many suggesting that it would be the more logical move as publishers would not accept these two different directions.
Starting on the NeoGAF forums and quickly turning into a movement on Twitter, fans of the PS4 and hopefuls of a non-DRM next-gen rallied behind the hastag “#PS4noDRM”as they expressed their views and how the system would affect them.

As you’d expect, this led to quite a bit of rage from some:
While others had a more toned down and nicer approach:
When you think about it, there are really only two outcomes to this entire scenario. Either Sony will adopt the DRM policy and receive a massive amount of hate for hiding it this long, or both Sony and Microsoft will drop the feature entirely. It’s almost impossible to believe that Sony will avoid DRM and Microsoft will implement it, as publishers would then be inclined to only develop for the console that is bringing them money from used games as well. There simply cannot be a divide this large.
E3, just get here already. For better or worse at this stage.
