PS4 Won’t Enforce Used Games Restrictions, Sony Confirms
Sony has used E3 2013 to properly troll Microsoft, telling its fans that the PS4 won’t enforce any kind of games restrictions.
During the E3 2013 conference, Sony’s Jack Tretton smugly revealed that the PS4 will enable the playing of used games. You will be able to trade in your games, sell them, rent them or just lend them to a friend.
Nor will you need to ever log in periodically to check for an internet connection to verify your PS4 has legitimate games.
Tretton stated that when you buy a PS4 game you have the “right” to do with it what you like, whatever that is.
Having a bit of a dig at Microsoft, Tretton also said that single-player games won’t require an internet connection at all, and that “it won’t stop working if you don’t authenticate for 24 hours.”
Tretton also revealed that a PS Plus subscription on the PS3 will also carry over to the PS4, and will be included as part of the same price.
Sony has also released this brilliant instructional video on how to share your PS4 games. We highly recommend watching, it’s brilliant.
