I don't know about the rentals but if they do destroy the thriving second hand games market will they attempt to stop blockbuster and other chains from renting their titles? I think that Sony's goal is to receive 100% of all possible sales. I also think that the games will be more expensive then what a lot of people think. :bnghd:
I just hope some one else will get the licence to host the FF series.
No. When you purchase a game it locks itself to your own specific PS3(via Online Activation ala Windows XP).
GamesRadar yesterday reported that Sony was warning high street retailers that the sale of pre-owned games would be illegal due to the licensing terms of PS3 software, which would mean that discs technically remained the property of Sony.
However, a Sony Computer Entertainment UK spokesperson today outright denied that any such message had been conveyed to retailers - telling GamesIndustry.biz that following conversations with the firm's European parent company, neither division has "any knowledge" of such a strategy.
"We have definitely not been communicating that," UK spokesperson Jennie Kong confirmed. "It's false speculation. We don't have any further knowledge about this topic - either officially or unofficially, to be frank."
