Gamers Let Sony Know They Want a DRM-Free PlayStation 4

NeoGAF users kick off #PS4noDRM and #PS4UsedGames hashtags

Some of the users over at NeoGAF want Sony to know they don't have to make the same mistakes Microsoft seems to be making with Xbox One. With word that Sony has been keeping a close eye on the fallout over Xbox One DRM like the still unclear always-online aspect, and what appears to be a preemptive attack against used games, gamers are giving them a chance not to do the same with PlayStation 4.

 

To get the word out, the hashtags #PS4noDRM and #PS4UsedGames are being employed in civil messages to the likes of Shuhei Yoshida (president of Sony Worldwide Studios, @yosp on Twitter) and Scott Rohde (head of PlayStation Software Product Development for Sony Worldwide Studios America, @rohdescott on Twitter). 

 

The request is simple: They want a PS4 free of online access requirements and one that isn't anti-used games.

 

The response thus far has been pretty massive, and you can see how many tweets are going out by searching #PS4noDRM and #PS4UsedGames. It's unclear how effective this will all be, but it's great to see passionate fans making their voices heard, and it certainly couldn't hurt.
