I expected as much. Confirmation is always good though, even if I don't actually buy Used games.

I knew from the get go it was a strategic rumor, so that microsoft didn't back out of making there console unable to play unused games.

Good to have it confirmed. There were an awful lot of people claiming that it wouldn't. Well, guess it will

I knew it was highly unlikely they would prevent the use of used games but now it's confirmed PS4 is a guaranteed purchase for me.

This also means that it's pretty much guaranteed that the next X-Box will also be free from blocking used game sales.

HOWEVER! In both system's cases, I wouldn't be surprised if every (or nearly) every game, expecially online-centered games will have an 'online pass'.

And I can't really blame them for using that method, because publishers, devs, and Sony don't see a dime from used game sales. Either there must be an online pass (or new game copies coming with DLC you otherwise have to pay for), or they start pushing for used game sellers into sending them a cut of their sales. The latter isn't going to happen, so they go with 'online pass' type setups.

It's probably the most reasonable overall. You can get a game cheaper than 'brand new' price, but to use it fully you pay a bit more for the extra features (Like Multiplayer).

Of course, used game sellers (like EB/Gamestop) will have to take into account the games that have online passes, lest they get a shitstorm of rage for selling a used game $5 cheaper than list for new, but the Features/Online Pass is $10.

This news makes me happy. I'm not one who usually buys used games anyways but I do lend games out to my friends and vice versa.

I bet for the first couple of years we will be able buy physical copys then it will start moving to download only games so no more used games then the greedy gets their way

digital downloads should cost near to haft or a physical copy and not the same or more than a physical copy as it cost hell of a lot less for some servers and some people to make sure they work greed that is what
gaming has come to this saddens me


( no used games ) this will only hurt greedy publishers and developers and kill off small developers on consoles as gamers will really less like to buy them as they cant sell them on and if it does not kill them completely the will move to just making even more crap phone game as gamers will be a lot more careful what games they get as they cant trade in to get that new game the greedy publishers and developers want us to buy so we buy less game and the greedy publishers and developers get less sales it all so means that the greedy publishers and developers then can sell us any crap they want and me & most of the gamers I know and have talked to got in to gaming because of used games I know my mother when I was a kid could not go out and buy full price games every time
