Sony backpedals a little on their No DRM announcement, says there will be development studio DRM

E3 2013 - Less than 18 hours ago, the gaming world was taken by storm when Sony's president Jack Tretton announced that the PlayStation 4 disk-based games can be freely given to friends and purchased on the used market. His exact words were "PlayStation 4 won't impose any new restrictions on used games" fast-forward by a little over half a day and the company seems to be taking a few steps back from that statement.

In an interview with Game Trailers, Tretton stated that while Sony's first party created games will not feature DRM, third-party games will be at the full control of their developers. This means that studios like EA, Activision, and others are fully allowed to prevent users from trading, sharing, or selling used games through one-time use activation keys.

 

"Well, I mean, we create the platform, we've certainly stated that our first-party games are not going to be doing that, but we welcome publishers and their business models to our platform," said Tretton. "The DRM decision is going to have to be answered by the third parties, it's not something we're going to control, or dictate, or mandate, or implement,"

The Elder Scrolls Online gameplay trailer released at E3

E3 2013 - If there is one game I have been waiting years to play it would have to be The Elder Scrolls Online. I have been a fan of the TES franchise for over 10 years now, and have been hoping the whole time for an online version. You can imagine my excitement when TES online was announced last year.

Tom Clancy's 'The Division' is shaping up beautifully as an open-world MMO next-gen title

This is something that has just popped up onto my radar and has instantly gone right into the 'top 10 games that I want to play' list for next-gen consoles. Massive Entertainment and Ubisoft are joining forces with Tom Clancy for The Division, which will be released on both the Xbox One and PS4.

 

 

The Division is set in New York, three weeks after a global pandemic begins on Black Friday. Players within the game take on a role of 'The Division', which is a group of "self-supported tactical agents". The gameplay video, above, should have you convinced enough that this is something to look forward to. The Division comes out in 2014.

Let's dissect the trailer, shall we? I'm loving the assistance from the drones, the realism (as he moves past the police car, he shuts the door to get past it while continuing to be within cover, the ultra detail within the game world itself, the team work seems great, but the one thing I'm not loving is the frame rate. This is some early work here, as it's coming out next year, but I'm hoping for 1080p at 60 FPS locked on these next-gen titles.
