    Luke, I agree. Just look at the 2200 comments in response to the article in a few hours, all saying basically the same thing, "I won't buy a PS4." Who knows if it will actually happen, there has been speculation for a while about this sort of thing but it is not good for anybody, as you say. Retailers like GME would be in serious trouble as well. MSFT could benefit if they don't follow along but I can't imagine just Sony going ahead with it.

    sure thing, from what I understand it is a tag on each disc and once it is read by a console it is basically not usable with another system. I think this could be a major deal if it actually sees the light of day.

    I agree with David, I just don't see a decline in gaming audiences. Decline in sales is one thing as it is happening for other reasons in my opinion but I don't see the popularity waning at all.

    David, on a slightly different note, what do you make of Sony's reported new patent that would block used game sales on the PS4 and its impact on the publishers?

    David,

    Very in-depth review of EA, well done. What your analysis proves is that the sector is incredibly hard to gauge, with mobile competition, the transition to new consoles, the increasing reliance on mega-franchises by publishers, and rapidly changing consumer wants/needs. I think the next console generation will spell good things for the major publishers in the coming years. Hopefully EA can capitalize, I believe they will. And thank you for the link to my article, it's appreciated.
