    ps4 question

    Does anyone know what the truth is? Originally sony said the ps4 wouldn't be able to play used games, I thought they got rid of that idea. Does anyone know if they are not going to do that anymore or if they are?

    The only way it will be backwards compatible is through streaming with Gai Kai's cloud technology.

    The PS4 Will Stream PS1, PS2, And PS3 Games

    I just looked at that and since it will play used games I guess tht also means that it will have a disk drive. Glad to know that.

    What did you mean Gamestop would close?

    There will always be used games to buy? Just ponder that the minute you remove the plastic film from a game its already used now?!

    There are tons of rumors that are saying that with Gai Kai streaming all you need to do is put your game in and it will access their service and you will be able to play the game. But I do not know if that is true or not. The SONY faithful will just have to wait and see for E3 for more details and explaining on this subject.

    Game stop makes it's money on people buying a game and returning it after a week or so and then they resell it. Originally, it was rumored that all games would have a one time activation code. Making a resell of that game not possible.
