As this is one of the highly anticipated titles I'm pretty sure Siny will try to sneak in some kind of protectoin. It might be too late to do that on the BD itself / in the code of the original game (just take in consideration betatesting / pressing times of the BDs etc.) so unless Sony will decide to go with the same shamble as with LBP they'll most probably release a downloadable patch together with the game and minimally block all the people from playing online without the patch. Only time will show.

I assure you loads of people will sadly. Not everyone is as knowledgable or capable as readers / members here (or any other forum) and people will just seek a SIMPLE solution and frankly if it will cost as ONE new game there is not much to think about for many ...

These hogs really expected to buy out all the stock of programmable chips in hopes it would force everyone to buy their CRAP Give it up to many free sources are available As the saying goes "Your a day late and a dollar short" Well 40-50 short in this case. Here's an idea: Get a real job and try to help support the free scene, accept donations if you must but noone is going to pay this price you demand theres only 40,000 other clones floating around this past week alone.
