Sony confirms PlayStation 4 will play used games

PlayStation 4 Used Games

Executives at GameStop (GME) breathed a collective sigh of relief Wednesday night as Sony (SNE) finally dispelled rumors that its next-generation PlayStation 4 video game console would block used games. Sony unveiled the PlayStation 4 during a press conference on Wednesday and while it did confirm that PlayStation 3 titles will not be natively supported on the new console, Sony executive Shuhei Yoshida told Eurogamer that “used games can play on a PS4.” Sony’s next-generation video game console is powered by an eight-core Jaguar CPU, an AMD Radeon GPU and 8GB of RAM, and it will launch ahead of the holidays this year.
