My fellow gamers, we can all collectively exhale… it looks like the PlayStation 4 will not block pre-owned titles.
According to Eurogamer (via IGN), the info was leaked in a rather awkward conversation between the Eurogamer writer, a Sony Japan PR representive, and Shuhei Yoshida, President of SCE’s Worldwide Studios, located in their Tokyo offices. In clarifying the writer’s question, Yoshida was heard saying, “So, used games can play on the PS4. How is that?”
Sony has not made an official statement on the matter as of yet.
