    Heh, I thought of this exact same idea a while ago

    The solution is even more simple - disc check.

    You can easily program the software so that it checks if the physical copy is inserted into the PS3's DVD drive.

    Oh I'm sure they have. The question should be: why haven't they implemented such a system.

    Care to make a guess?

    It starts with an "M".

    Piracy. That's why. Remember the PSP? People pirated the hell out of that thing; and that thing was using proprietary UMD disks; imagine how much easier it is to hack a PS2's DVD-ROM game and burn copies yourself.

    lol, I was hinting at Money, actually.

    If you code it right, piracy isn't an issue. Piracy on PS3 is pretty much non-existent.

    I'm pretty sure the disc-check-free-play idea hasn't been done because Sony wants to milk their old games as much as possible.

    Why give people who already bought the games for their original console the option to play them on their new console when you can get them to re-purchase the games again, right?

    Disgusting. How dare a business?



    Your suggestion about disc check is good, though.

    Porcelain has such an amazing voice. Praise this song for letting her show more of her vocals.

    Wait a fracking minute! These jackasses turned a great song by U2 into a fracking (c)rap tune! OMFG! I saw it coming as soon as I looked at the lineup! As soon as the rap began, I switched this video off!

    This is an insult to a powerful song originally written by a far superior band! Even if it didn't have the (c)rap or auto-tuning (I didn't stick around long enough to find out about the latter), it completely lacks the emotional impact of the masterwork that (unwittingly) sired this dreck.

    In truth, I was waiting for cruddy auto-tuning to kick in, but I didn't have to because it became a rap piece! I am thoroughly disgusted with this -- rendition! I doubt I could express fully just how repulsive this pale and vacuous shadow of a great song truly is.

    These (expletive deleted) aren't even worthy of carrying U2's lunch around for them.

    I swear, my faith in humanity recedes just a little bit more every day.

    As a musician, who appreciates real music, yeah, I can be pretty critical.
    Allow me to take a step back and take a deep breath for a moment....I think the instrumentation of this version was cool. It, among anything in the song, at least carries the spirit of the original, even if it is done rather artsy fartsy. Even the vocals were okeeday. Not great by any stretch as purported (they lack Bono's angst that is the heart and soul of the song), but as soon as the (c)rapper kicked in, that completely killed any credibility this piece had as a song.

    My reaction to the (c)rap is what killed the song entire for me...up until that point, it didn't seem too bad a piece. But all I had to do was hear a second and a half of a monotone rap, and BAM, song be dead!

    You know, some may argue that Bono is crap....
