Playstation 4 codenamed Orbis?

DRM 0

silentbrad (1488951) writes "Kotaku reports some "details" about Sony's next console given to them by a "reliable source". They say that the console's codename—or, following Kotaku's odd-but-possible logic, the actual name—will be Orbis, and it has a planned release in time for the 2013 holiday season. They've been told that developers are being told to plan for an AMD x64 CPU and AMD Southern Islands GPU. Further on, they mention that there will be no PS3 backwards compatibility and, like rumours about the next Xbox, will have anti-used game DRM. Specifically, "new games for the system will be available one of two ways, either on a Blu-Ray disc or as a PSN download (yes, even full retail titles). If you buy the disc, it must be locked to a single PSN account ... If you then decide to trade that disc in, the pre-owned customer picking it up will be limited in what they can do. ... it's believed used games will be limited to a trial mode or some other form of content restriction, with consumers having to pay a fee to unlock/register the full game.""
