Sony has previously stated PS4 will play used games, yet it is still “mindful” of the “issues” raised on the subject by the publishing and development communities.

Speaking with CVG, SVP of worldwide studios, Michael Denny, said the firm plans to “do the right thing” by both consumers and developers.

“It’s a massively important issue and I understand why it’s one that keeps coming up and will keep coming up, because people want to know what the exact stance is,” he said. “Of course we’re mindful of what the game development community wants and what the wider industry issues are with those things.

“It’s not something that I feel I have any further announcement or comment to make on, other than to acknowledge with you that it’s a massively important issue and of course we are going to do the right thing.”

It was rumored before PS4′s reveal that it would block used games when a patent featuring such tech popped up in January.

The rumors, however, are more prevalent with the next Xbox console.
