Is Sony Really Going Forward With Their New Patent?

So I just read an article from IGN that Sony is going to basically obliterate second hand game sales. I guess they’re going to be encoding their discs to read and record the IDs of both the system and user onto the disc. If both IDs don’t match up, then the disc won’t work.
So what’s going to happen to places like Game Stop? What’s going to happen if say, your system breaks? What about playing games over your friends houses? What’s wrong with Sony?

    Yep, I just read it as well. It seems that we should not have taken rumors earlier in 2012 for nothing. It seems that what you say will be true. The aim is to ensure that developers get their money for games that are being used by every single player.
    This will obviously damage companies like GameStop but what can we do? Sony is just developing a better idea that PC games have with the CD keys except it will be full-proof No mroe sharing games with your friends, it seems you’ll need to take your entire console..
    Do not ask so many questions and except answers right now. We have many questions that only Sony can answer. Just be patient for more articles.
    Hope this helps.

    I hope not. I mean, its nice to get a game used sometimes because you don’t know if you’ll like it or not. Plus if its a older game then what are you supposed to do? Some games don’t get produced anymore after a while right?
