    Shuhei Yoshida Confirms PS4 will play used games

    Confirmed: PlayStation 4 will play used games - AnalogHype


    Just a few days ago, the internet was running wild with rumors that both Microsoft and Sony’s next-generation consoles would block the use of pre-owned games. Shortly after this rumor was published, the internet was set ablaze. Fans on either side of the argument defended their views about why these next-gen consoles would block used games, or why they wouldn’t. While we cannot speak for Microsoft’s rumored console, Sony has let their stance on used-games be known today.

    Speaking in an interview for Eurogamer, Shuhei Yoshida was questioned about the recent patents for a technology that would block used games from being played on a system. Shuhei Yoshida’s response was the following:

    “So, used games can play on PS4. How is that?”

    While it is a rather direct respone, and not really the PR speak we were expecting to hear, it’s good to know that Sony will allow gamers to play pre-owned games on the PlayStation 4 when it launches this holiday season.

    Awesome news, if the next Xbox ends up not being able to play used games then it's screwed.

    It's a good step but it would become less of an sticking point in future if they charged much less for digital copies and really dropped prices on older games instead of having 5 year old games in digital form for £20.

    Still, i prefer a physical copy any day of the week.

    That's good news since new games are expensive.

    I'm waiting for the fine print when the PS4 comes out letting us know we have to buy a re-activation pass, much like the online activation codes with certain games today.

    Thank god, would have been an incredibly stupid move if they didn't play used games.
