All Sony had to do is announce that there console was going to work just like all previous consoles and they get a standing ovation with such innovation.
Don't get me wrong, this is great for gamers its just sad that it even had to come to this but at least people aren't letting Microsoft go unpunished with the DRM policy's they are trying to enforce.
Still the PS4 requires a fee ( yearly/monthly ? ) to be able to play online games, this alone makes me not interested in it. As most of these games are Peer 2 peer setups so effectively your paying them the right to host and join games which on the PC was always free.
