But they can't, for the simple reason that the PS4 doesn't ever, EVER, force you to go online (confirmed). The best they can do is online passes again which is by far the lesser of two evils, and who'd have thought that would ever be a real sentence.
Games that KNOW you can go online, such as PSN games and multiplayer-only games, can and do use full DRM at the moment. Capcom is big on this, and faced a backlash when their games wouldn't work during the PSN outage. Can't imagine that ever happening again...
21 consoles, 5 handhelds, 2 PCs, 1 Mac and about 700 games from the past 30 years. Every major manufacturer and developer represented. Still a fanboy for disagreeing with you.
