But before the unveiling of the next-gen consoles, it was rumored that Sony would indeed use DRM, but according to President and CEO of the Worldwide PlayStation Business, Andrew House, this was something they never considered. He said during an interview with The Guardian: "Dating from about our February event, there had been questions about what our online policy would be. And I have to say that we were slightly perplexed, because we had no intention of changing from a model that I think has served us really well for several platform life-cycles."
