    Their 'philosophy' seems to be more about providing hardware and development environments that enable easy development for big publishers and indies alike. None of that is incompatible with the notion of second hand game restrictions or some other DRM.

    I'd be stunned if the publishers that are lapping up Microsoft's approach won't be looking sternly on any platform that doesn't provide parity.

    If the XBOne starts doing decent numbers, and publishers see a substantial boost from this new revenue stream, it's not hard to see them backing away from platforms that don't enable that revenue stream.

    Time will tell.
