Likelyhood that Sony is doing the same...

....and decided to reverse course after seeing the storm Microsoft is going thru?

IMO, the probablty is high.

I'm pretty sure that this was was probably going to be an industry wide thing with the DRms, no rentals, second hand restrictions, etc. however, Microsoft decided to leak it before E3 allowing Sony to sit back, surgery the situation and make adjustments.

Its more likely they didnt mention it at the reveal saw the backlash at what it would cause decided to reverse it got rid of the feature.

while at Microsoft they were like Meh sony will probably do it as well kept the feature in.

And Sony was laughing at how close of a call it was to destroying their next gen console

That would be lovely. I would hope. Let the American video game system die for good.

If they want to attempt to infringe on our rights like every other big time American company, let them dig their own grave.

If you forgot, PS3 was supposed to use single user keys for the BD disc at launch. When word was leaked, the gamers got pissed off and within a week Sony reversed course.

I dunno, I mean I guess its possible.

But I can't see how people who are paid millions a year to do these types of things couldn't of possibly seen this outcome.

Hell, when I heard about it the first time I thought "Thats not a good idea", and im just a lowly school janitor.

You couldn't try to f*** up this badly and succeed, must be some real bright bulbs over at microsoft.
