Not just the disc drive (Gaming)

Oh, that's simply not true and implies that computers don't have DRM, which is also false. DRM does not make a console. Fixed specifications (unique hardware?) and a lower-level gaming runtime/OSMake a console. Largely I would say game certification could be argued as DRM, but it's a bundle of sticks. Anyway, consoles are becoming more like computers in all of those ways as they try to make them multimedia family hubs. Seeing license management move more toward code signing could change too.
