PlayStation 4 WILL Play Used Games!

The PlayStation 4 will play used games!  Hallelujah!

While the world may not have laid eyes on the physical machine that is to be the PlayStation 4 during Sony’s PlayStation 4 event, the information is now spilling out, and with it the squashing of terrible rumors.  Especially concerning the future of used games, and how (or how they wouldn’t) play on the next generation systems.

The good news is that the PlayStation 4 will play used games.

According to a Eurogamer interview with Shuhei Toshida, head of Sony Worldwide Studios, the PlayStation 4 will not block the use of used games.

We can all breathe a sigh of relief, but let’s all take this with a grain of salt.  Nothing is final until the system launches.  Promises — er, visions — have been declared about the PlayStation 4, but the holiday season will quickly be upon us.  We’ve been promised lots of great things of consoles past, and some ambitious things end up on the cutting room floor.  Let’s hope that this used game fiasco, is nothing but a rumor.  For now, we can only trust what we’re told.
