Egh most of you guys are pirates judging from what your all saying. As a small time developer I hate pirates, you are all very bad people. I don't make games but it still costs me thousands of pounds from people pirating my work.
You are ruining it for everyone else, cheaters online, trophy unlocks and now pre-owned games that might not work if it has had to many previous owners.
i have never ever shoplifted, never stole something i wanted (good game movie ect.) stfu about us all being pirates... your programing must suck. cause if it was worth anything... you wouldn't have to deal with pirates. pirating = < 5% provable loss. i know... i wrote a paper for school about it.
go ahead. argue with me!! i'm not going to check it... i just needed to tell off a whiny developer.
p.s. the only reason valve got a dime from me was piracy... tried it... love it... bought it... NET LOSS = 0
Publishers spending the kind of money on drm that dwarfs any single development project, or even a series of titles, has happened many times before.
Knowing Sony, this is going to happen, it's going to be expensive, and we'll end up paying for it in new hidden costs and lack of services as usual.
I suppose they could just, you know, sell the serial key. And tie the serial key to any form and shape of the content of the bd disk, but.. sorry, I'm imagining Sony would try to do something imaginative for once. Summimasen..
