PS4 will not blocked used games, Yoshida confirms

After weeks of speculation the PlayStation 4 has been revealed, and although most of the rumours were true there was one very important omission.

"Used games can play on PS4,"Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida told Eurogamer.

"That's the general expectation by consumers. They purchase physical form, they want to use it everywhere, right? So that's my expectation," he added.

Although the used-games-block has been touted for Sony several times, especially in the wake of an NFC patent, it's really been persistent over on Microsoft's side. The rumours hold so much sway that used game mogul GameStop keeps suffering share panic whenever they pop up again.

It's probably safe to say that now that Sony's definitely not blocking used games, for Microsoft to do so would be a grievous error.
