PlayStation 4 can play used games

The PlayStation 4 won't block used games.

"Can used games be played on the PS4?"

It's a question that many of you have been asking that wasn't answered at the conference in New York yesterday.

Shuhei Yoshida, President of Sony Worldwide Studios, has denied rumours that the new console wouldn't allowed second hand games.

"[Consumers] purchase physical form, they want to use it everywhere, right? So that's my expectation," Yoshida told Eurogamer.

"Used games can play on PS4."

However, in response to a similar question asked by Engadget, Yoshida stuttered and waffled his way through the explanation when he was ask to clarify his stance on his 'expectations that PS4 games will work on [the]hardware'.

"Ummm ... yeah. We have to really name our system services to explain more about it."

Is his explanation good enough for you?

I wonder if Sony is getting tired of repeating it self about this topic yet
well they do say playstation is built for games and all about gamers so is assuming that since alot of people buy used games that they will let used games still be used
Used games better work..
That'd be pathetic if they wouldnt work :L
I just want BACKWARDS COMPATIBILITY!!!

why oh why do you want that, i mean really you cant keep 2 consoles, does it mean that much to you, for me unless the game is a classic i move forward and play the better games, i still have every console i have bought, so if i really need to play an old game i just bring out the old console :P
Excellent!!!!
The answer hardly seems definitive. They might be waiting for Microsoft to move first on blocking used games.
