Sony Not Planning to Block Used Games on the PS4

Killzone Shadowfall

Before the launch of its PlayStation 4 console, rumors circulated Sony may be planning to implement technology to prevent used games from being used with the system. Fortunately for everyone, that won’t be the case.

Though a lot of talk during the PlayStation Meeting on Wednesday centered on the PS4′s line-up of games and how you’ll play them, there was nary a mention of DRM or other tech to block the playing of used games. That’s because Sony isn’t planning on doing something so potentially foolish.

Speaking with Eurogamer, Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida talked about Sony’s stance on issue. When asked if Sony planned to block used games, Yoshida replied, “Do you want us to do that?” After a brief discussion about used games, Yoshida further confirmed it would be business as usual with the PS4. “Used games can play on the PS4,” he stated bluntly.

Now, if we could just get some reasoning behind the lack of backwards compatibility.
