Sony insists the PS4 will have fuck all games to block anyway

used_gamesIn response to the controversy surrounding its patenting of used-game blocking technology, Sony has assured angry gamers that, much like its predecessor, the PS4 would have fuck all worth playing anyway.

Following the discovery of the patent by a user on NeoGAF, there has been feverish speculation that the technology will spell the end of affordable gaming on Sony’s future consoles. Whilst the company has yet to officially confirm or deny these suspicions, SCEA president Jack Tretton has insisted that, either way, consumers were unlikely to notice .

“Despite our notorious track record, there seems to be this misconception that the PS4 will launch with games that people, real normal people, will actually want to play”, laughed Tretton.

“I mean, cast your mind back to 2006. Doesn’t anyone remember Genji: Days of the Blade? Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire? What about Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII? Seriously, you’d have to be batshit insane to go out and intentionally buy this sort of shit, new or used!”

Recomposing himself, Tretton added: “Anyway, even if we do decide to introduce this used-game blocking thingamajig, I imagine that by the time a developer gets to grips with our convoluted system architecture and actually makes something worth playing, some smug virgin will have already cracked our security codes and published them on the internet.”

  1. I’ve just stumbled upon your site and you really have a lot of gems and good humour. You know better than I do, that humour when backed with truths is funnier, but you know really well that PS4 will have games people want to play along the course even if you don’t think it will have good launch titles and that blocking used games would not be confined to just launch titles. It is not even possible that PS4 will have fuck all games to play, so this reduces the fun factor of this piece to the point of -9000.

    Therefore, this article fails to meet the quality of other content on your site. Sorry for taking humour so seriously!
