PS4: Gamers Ask Sony Not To Use Restrictive DRM Policies

Microsoft’s Xbox One has been rumored to block used games. Gamers fear that Sony may block used games on the PlayStation 4 as well, so they have kicked off a Twitter campaign to reach out to key Sony employees, urging them to steer clear of such policies for the PlayStation 4.

The campaign first took off on a NeoGaf forum post  to ensure Sony knows the gaming community’s opinions regarding restrictive DRM and used game policies.

The campaign against DRM and used game policies uses the hashtags #PS4NoDRM and #PS4USEDGAMES.

The campaign encourages gamers to post tweets using the tags and also asks them to send tweets  to some prominent Sony employees who might have a say in the decision making policies of the company. These employees are:

  • Shuhei Yoshida (president of worldwide studios)
  • John Koller (head of hardware marketing)
  • Guy Longworth (senior vice president PlayStation Brand Marketing)
  • Scott Rohde (PlayStation Software Product Development Head for Sony Worldwide Studios America)

The campaign is gaining momentum on several websites and forum boards including the popular social media website Reddit.

Sony is also closely monitoring the campaign, with several employees responding to gamers on Twitter. However, none of the employees have given any information on the company’s official decision regarding used games sales and DRM.

Anyone can join in on the campaign, which means you can join in on trying to stop DRM and used game restrictions for the PlayStation 4. Let your voice be heard by Sony today.
