I Love My PS3 And So Does My Kids But Some Overpower Companies Are Just Taking Advantage Of Everything they Can As Long As The $$$ Keeps Rolling In.
I Will No Longer Purchase Any $ony Product Just For The Stuff We See From Them .
The Resell Of A System Is Mostly Base on Games they Can Buy Once u Cant Buy Used Games Most People will Just Discard The Systems Or Look For An Alternative

Isn't that just a flow chart as would be needed for a patent application? It doesn't mean they are anywhere near finishing it though, likely a basic explanation for those over the hill people who work at a patent office.
It wouldn't work except for digital distribution, or physical distribution with the caveat of needing uniquely identifiable code either on the media (this won't happen due to massive costs involved) or a one use code...which we already have in the form of season passes.
The only way a code accompanying the non unique distribution media could be verified is online. This would mean that anyone using the PS4 will have to have an internet connection to the verifying server to make the game work.
This won't happen, I'm sure it will have been discussed at Sony HQ and I'm sure the same at Microsoft, I just can't see it actually happening due to not enough people having an internet connection in countries that aren't up there with the West but not as poor as some eastern ones. I'm thinking Mexico and further south, eastern Europe.
Not going to happen, but the reason you will have seen this flow chart is because a patent needs to be filed long before actually being granted so it could well just be a safety measure to cover themselves if this eventually does make it into widespread use, but with the added benefit of being able to license the technology therefore generating more revenue.
