One of the details released after the Sony event last night is that the long rumored demise of the used games market was grossly over exaggerated. Or was it? In a conversation between Eurogamer and Sony's Shuhei Yoshida brought forth this quote from Yoshida, "So, used games can play on PS4. How is that?”
While it's far from an official announcement, it definitely is a strong indication that the long-rumored used games 'block' on the PS4 actually won't be there. Such a move would tend to decimate the retail video games business, among other things.
Yoshida's comments leave plenty of wiggle room for Sony to work within, including online passes which would render large portions of games incapable of functioning and more. So let's not start throwing confetti up in the air just yet.
Would you be disappointed if used games were incapable of being played on new consoles?
