What happens if you have a great multiplayer game and you want to take it over to a friends' house? I'm not putting my PSN account on their machine. Does that mean I can't play the game that I bought? The feeling of "purchasing" or "ownership" of games is going out the window. If that's the way the system works it would feel more like a permanent rental.
Ya this is my biggest issue. Pretty much the only time I play games now is going over to friends' houses and I barely even play my own console but still buy games. If I cant play a game I bought on multiple consoles then they are just useless pieces of plastic.


Guess Ill go back to playing sports or something lol.

I really think the big reason console games reign is being able to play with friends, at least thats how it is for me. If I cant buy Mortal kombat or Twisted Metal and bring it over to multiple friends' houses then why buy these games. Im not gonna play it by myself, these games are designed to play with friends. PC is more of a lone wolf or online deal, not Ill bring my disk over and we can play 2 player. Its part of the console history and why its so huge imo. With out that aspect I woulda lost interest in console gaming over a decade ago.

Re: Orbis = PS4

If they make it impossible to sell and buy used games, I'll probably still, eventually, buy a console when that game comes out that I just *have* to have. But I'm going to put more work into making sure that I'm going to like the games I buy.

Today I can buy a game and if I don't like it, I can sell it and get some money back.

I'll also probably never preorder a game, ever.

Re: Orbis = PS4

GTAV will force me to get a console, which I hate'ish. I prefer PC (well, Mac in PC mode) and would be willing to wait for games to come out for that. But not GTAV. That is a camp-out-at-Best Buy-to-get-both-the-console-and-the-game kind of... uh... game.

I'd go so far as to say it the PS4 will have limited PS4 compatibility.

Re: Orbis = PS4

lolling at the IGN tweets

PlayStation 4 is the name of the new console

OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF HOURS?!

They’re very insistent that the PlayStation is not a “box.”

All this talk of ideas and vision means we're probably not going to see the box, I reckon.

Comes with a camera? How many things in my living room need to be constantly watching me?v

Apparently the PS4 never shuts down. It just suspends/resumes.

Extremely laggy.

Upload your own play sessions is a pretty cool feature.

Re: Orbis = PS4

These companies need to realize that gamers generally don't give a **** about social media features on consoles, they aren't a selling point.
