Games Sony just won the console war for this generation. Not only is the PS4 going to be cheaper, Sony's CEO gloated on stage last night at E3 with the biggest possible grin as he detailed that all that nonsensical DRM crap that Microsoft is pulling, like blocking used games sales and stuff like that? Yeah, Sony's PS4 will have none of that. Sony even made an instructional video to explain how sharing games works.

Orwell's 1984 in full effect. People are cheering for a console which is region locked, DRMed, and only runs games from "licensed" devs, just because it allows used games.

"Sure, the Ingsoc's dictatoship is bad, but the other dictatorships are worse".

I know, this is how things have been in consoles since a long time, but I expected comments to the tune of "I will eat the least crap sandwich, but I still hate people who try to sell me crap sandwiches" instead of "Hip, hip hooray! Sony is our savior!".

PS4 is region free.
Discs don’t have DRM per-se, you put them in your PS4 and they play!

It’s not an open platform, no, and that is a bad thing…
