Xbox one will require all games to undergo a 24h "verification check" ie: the system will connect to the internet and verify the game is an authentic version and if everything is clear will allow you to play the game. Regardless of whether you are going to play online or just single player story mode. If the system can't connect to the server for any reason the game will not load.

PS4 will do none of the above.

its good news because a lot of games don't come out in all regions and places like australia and nz get screwed on prices and therefore have a lot more options in terms of where to buy games.

Re: PS4 discussion thread

yes of course, but you need to be able to access the online content as well.

* according to microsoft, i do not own these games. i own a licence to play them.

I buy imported games all the time, so reagion free is really cool to me.

As for the PSN accounts, I did have a problem with a MW game, as the EU store only gave EU map packs. So I made a new US account, bought a US PSN card and downloaded to maps, then switched to my normal EU account and played the mappack normally.

The middle three seem very misleading given the online pass stuff I'm reading.
