No DRM For Used Games Movement Targets PS4, Xbox One

June 3, 2013 -

The #PS4NoDRM campaign that bombarded Sony executives with messages on Twitter not to include DRM schemes for used games in the PS4 earlier in the month let us know this morning that they are ramping up for a second and final push of their message on Wednesday, June 5th starting at 8AM EST / 5AM PST/ 1PM GMT.

The movement garnered a lot of attention after the Xbox One press conference earlier in the month where Microsoft revealed that it would charge a fee to activate used games on their console. Fans did not respond well to that news and have been trying ever since to get more details from Microsoft. Sony has not detailed what - if anything - they will do about people using used games on the PS4, but the gaming community is drawing attention to the issue in advance of the company's E3 press conference next week.

You can learn more about those efforts in this NeoGAF thread and on PS4nodrm.com.

There's also a movement to let Microsoft know that the community hates its ideas about used games and fees on Xbox One. You can out more on that by checking out the hashtag #XBOXONENoDRM on Twitter or by visiting xboxonenodrm.com.

"Yeah, sure. We'll continue to not do anything. No guarantees them publishers won't screw you guys, but hey: Not our problem, baby. We just sell consoles."

If only gamers could get the attention of companies in this manner regarding DRM for PC games without being labeled pirates (who just remove the DRM anyway). It is interesting to observe the double standard.

Yep. If you don't like PC DRM, then you are either a pirate, or a pirate sympathizer. Very bad. 

It is one of those things that you just have to keep speaking up about while supporting those developers who get it right. I have not bought a PC game outside of the Humble Bundle and Good Old Games in a LONG time.
