    E3 2013: PS4 Used Game Restrictions 'Up to Publishers'

    Sony has confirmed that the digital rights management of PlayStation 4 software will be up to third-party publishers. Speaking on GTTV, Sony's Jack Tretton stated, "The DRM decision for third-party games will be up to publishers."

    This clarification comes one day after Sony's E3 press conference this week, where Tretton stated that the PlayStation 4 "won't pose any new restrictions on the use of PS4 gamers." He continued, "We believe in the model that people embrace today with PlayStation 3."

    Publishers of PS4 games, then, can do what's already done on existing PlayStation software: Limit or lock content behind online passes or redemption codes (or opt out of restrictions altogether), which differs from Microsoft's limited licensing of Xbox One software.

    Pretty much meaning that if publisher wants to implement online/offline pass system, they can.
    Just like on ps3.

    Exactly. Honestly, nothing to be worried about with this. EA saw first hand how the online pass ended up being a failure and axed it on all games that required it.

    Plus, with all this fan support of no DRM, I don't think a publisher would be stupid enough to put any fee's for someone playing a used copy.

    I wouldn't be surprised if one or two publishers will try but I will guarantee you that they will realize the damage it's going to cause them.

    Just like current gen and exactly what they said in February. Lets see how many publishers like to spend their own money to implement it and being selectively boycotted by some gamers.
