    I am looking to get a PS3, but I am wondering about the rumors that you can't trade in games? That concerns me.

    Well, YOU CAN'T TRADE GAMES. Once you use them on a system they only work on THAT system.

    It's posted 5 or 6 times on this site plus it's on the PS3 main website.

    link? i dont believe it because it would need to have a Blu-Ray burner in order for it to write on the disc the consoles serial number so it cant be used on another system and as far as i know, it doesnt have any kind of burner

    No! Sony never implemented it. People fought Sony on this, and it never went through. Blockbuster would break out the baseball bats and visit Sony HQ if they dared.

    Rumor: Bogus. Not bogus that Sony considered it.

    How's it possible to have a game work on only one console, anyway? You'd have to write something to the disc for it to acknowledge its designated console...

    Is the drive in the PS3 a writer, too?

    NOTE: Don't stick this to me, it's merely a theory and I'm not that fluent in technology

    So, I'm thinkin that maybe there's a way to get the code or whatever off. They tell the rental stores how to or give them a machine to do it for all the rental stores...I don't know, but I definitely heard that they were gonna do that.

    Sony filed a patent a while back, I think late 2005 about a new type of DRM technology. Neither Sony or any other company have ever said they will use this technology on the PS3. Everything you heard were speculations made by websites and analysts that the PS3 will utilize this technology. This patent is just what it is, a patent. I think it works by registering a master code on the disk via Internet and associating it with a particular player's Mac address, which will disable any other players to play that particular disk.

    I guess you want a trophy too?? How many retarded people are on this forum. Its like you guys are breeding.

    Lets get a few things straight. you guys say you heard them planning on doing stuff. Heres the truth. They didnt! It doesnt matter what you hear. Its what the final product does. Guess what? Games will work on as many systems as you want. Ive rented plenty of games to prove this. I heard the wii is getting a dildo attachment for their remotes. Does that prove anything???
