Sony Confirms PlayStation 4 Will Play Secondhand Games

Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida dismissed earlier reports that PlayStation 4 would block pre-owned games.

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

Sony has filed a patent for techniques to block pre-owned games using RFID tags. After PlayStation 4’s official announcement, sources inside the company hinted that Sony intends to use that patent, but not with PS4.
