With the response of a very large round of applause and hooting, Sony has revealed that the consumer-restrictive DRM issues that Microsoft recently revealed will not be making their way to the PlayStation 4, allowing users to trade in their games freely and without restriction.
"We believe in the model that people embrace today with PlayStation 3, and continue to demand."
"PS4 disc-based games don't need to be connected online to play, or for any type of authentication."
"If you enjoy playing single-player games offline, PS4 won't require you to check in online periodically, and won't stop working if you haven't been authenticated within 24 hours."
Stay tuned for more details on what exactly the PlayStation 4 has in store for gamers and make sure you check out our Sony Press Conference round-up over here for more.
