PlayStation 4 won’t block used games, says Sony

Before today’s PlayStation 4 announcement, rumors had flown about whether or not Sony would implement a system to block users from playing second-hand games on the console. It wasn’t addressed in the company’s presentation, but now Shuhei Yoshida, President of Sony Worldwide Studios, has denied the reports.

In response to a question by Eurogamer, Yoshida said:

“[fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=”yes” overflow=”visible”][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”][Consumers] purchase physical form, they want to use it everywhere, right? So that’s my expectation,” before declaring “Used games can play on PS4.”

Maybe they “can play” but what if they charge you for ‘unlocking’ a used copy? Like a code or something… There’s still a lot we don’t know about the PlayStation 4.

Will Microsoft implement a similar system?
