Sony PlayStation 5 Could Incorporate a Blockchain-Based Digital Rights Management (DRM) System

    The PlayStation 5 is far from being released to the market in the near future, however, Sony could be implementing its blockchain-based Digital Rights Management (DRM) system on it. According to Sony’s Mark Cerny, the new PlayStation will provide complete immersion.

    Play Station 5 Could Integrate Blockchain Technology

    The PlayStation 5 will not be released for users in 2019. It may be possible for Sony to be releasing it next year. In a recent conversation with Wired Magazine, Mark Cerny talked about what to expect in the upcoming version of the popular gaming console.

    One of the things he mentioned is that the PS5 will be supporting ray tracing and also a resolution of up to 8k. Moreover, it will include a 3D audio technology that would allow users to experience a more immersive gaming session. It could also include backward-compatibility with PlayStation 4 games.

    However, an interesting thing that Play Station 5 will include is Digital Rights Management (DRM). This is going to help Sony keep its copyright concerns on lock. One of these issues happened when in 2005 Sony instituted a copy protection system on 22 million CDs. The systems were destroyed and there have been endless vulnerabilities that were exploited by malware.

    In 2018, the firm patented the DRM system that runs on top of blockchain and that has been registered in Japan and the United States. With the DRM system, games will be from the players forever and they will be registered on a self-organizing blockchain system.

    The new system would help Sony avoid copyright issues. Hackers and attackers would have a more complicated work to do if they want to break in Sony’s system and software. At the same time, users will be able to trade digital rights to games on the PlayStation Network. Although the DRM has to be rolled out, it could be one of the main components of the future PS5.
