Re: Last of Us for PS4 available at Walmart already?

Steam is not all its cracked up to be.

I try to bunny PC games from good Ole games since they are DRM free and they are YOUR games to keep. You can burn it to a disc and keep it forever and install it on a PC years and years down the road

With steam and origin you're REQUIRED to ALWAYS have them running, even if you're 'offline'. And any games you buy at any store if they're on the shelf, require a steam or origin installation.
You essentially have one use disc because it comes with an activation code for the service and the disc is effectively useless after the initial installation. If you delete the game, you have to download it from steam/origin because if yu use the disc again, it will require the activation code and because you already used it, it will stop the installation when it finds the code has already been used....

I dont like DRM like that

if there is a disc version of a game. i really don't care if the digital version costs less (which is usually the opposite) or better. id pick up the physical one. your account can be banned. your game can be taken down from psn. you wont be able to do much about that.

Oooooh yeah that's true, I remember someone from my guild (in SWG and Guild Wars 2) had his XBL hacked and it got banned and he wasn't able to get it back but most of his games were on disc and he was able to create a new account and play them again.  With digital, they go with your account, I have NBA 2K14 and Watch_Dogs and of course the PS+ monthly games via digital.

Hate to say it, but he's legit. It's usually the smaller shops that sell their games as soon as they get them, so they can make a profit before the big name guys, like Gamestop. It's not unheard of for Wal-Mart to break street date though.image_322910_fit_940.jpg

Probably no poops given to be honest.

 

Money is money.

 

The game isn't anything super special (Just a re-release)

 

Also, he wasn't stupid enough to pop the game in, he purchased it and is now waiting for the release date, otherwise it would appear on his profile. Also likely because he didn't want to risk the ban as they would know the moment he pops in the disc (Has to update)

Sony can do absolutely nothing to you if you play the game early.

Microsoft is not that lenient, though...

I've never heard of Sony banning anyone for playing a legitimate copy of the game, prior to release. Micro$oft just gets **bleep** about it. No wonder they're losing players to Sony.

I wouldn't go as far as that, although there may be no recorded case yet.

 

Just imagine if someone was to get 'Destiny' or 'The Crew' one of there most anticipated games before release (at least a week before) and get a super head start on online play.

 

They might not go as far as banning the person, but they may suspend or remove your stats.

 

Just my two cents though, Sony are the good guys, but I'm sure if someone does something that gets devs or ceos upset they might make an example out of someone.
