PlayStation 4 won’t block used games


Last night we saw the announcement of the PlayStation 4. Beforehand rumours had flown about that Sony may implement a system that would see users unable to play second-hand games on the new console. This rumour didn’t seem to get addressed at last nights show but now Shuhei Yoshida president of Sony Worldwide Studios has cleared the rumour up.

In response to a question asked by Eurogamer, Yoshida replied ” Consumers purchase physical form, they want to use it everywhere, right? So that’s my expectation,” before finally declaring “used games can play on PS4”. So finally that rumour can be put to bed and let’s hope rivals Microsoft follow suit. There are still many things we don’t know about the upcoming PS4 but thankfully we no this.
