A few days ago Microsoft confirmed that they have implemented a DRM system into the new Xbox One that doesn’t allow users to buy second-hand games and play them without paying a small fee. All around the world gamers started to panic and they even kicked off a Twitter campaign to reach out PlayStation employees, urging them not to implement a system like that in the PlayStation 4.
Using hastags like #PS4NoDRM and #PS4USEDGAMES they have reached key employees of Sony and tried to convince them. The employees who were contacted are as following:
- 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)
Surprisingly all of them responded, thanking the fans for the passion involved in this campaign. You can check their tweets below:
