Sony Cracks Down on Game Sharing

Posted by | November 4, 2011

Ah, Sony, always making friends with the people. Here’s the deal. When your purchase a game through the Playstation Network, you can share that game between your PS3 and PSP systems, so a single game can follow you through new hardware and across consoles. Neat! That changes come November 18th. Kotaku has the story.

    I’m over here scratching my head at Sony’s antics. The whole history of the Playstation 3 and the PSP has been one of a strange give and take. Sony gives users a feature, then a year or two later takes it away. Look at the freedom of the PS2 compared to the rigid, authorize-or-die scheme of the PS3. Look at how Sony pulled Linux off their console and angered the hardware geeks. Check out how the PSP, though its evolution, has been losing features and closing itself off to only Sony-approved content. Meanwhile, other developers are making bank by opening their games and systems.

    I wonder what’s driving this change.
