Sony tries to assuage fears over PlayStation 4 used game policy – still offers no details

Sony PlayStation 4 Used Game Policy

Sony and Microsoft have left a lot of question marks surrounding the used game policies for their PlayStation 4 and Xbox One video game consoles. Earlier rumors suggested that Microsoft is looking to take control of the used game market and may only allow certain retailers to sell pre-owned products. TV host and industry pundit Geoff Keighley recently said that Sony may also incorporate some form of digital rights management (DRM) for used games, a policy that didn’t sit well with PlayStation enthusiasts. A thread on video game message board NeoGAF suggested that Sony fans reach out to executives through social media and email to try to reverse the company’s still unconfirmed stance on used games. The thread has since garnered nearly 5,000 responses and was successful in getting Sony’s attention.

“Humbled by the outpouring of passionate PlayStation fans and their willingness to talk to us directly,” SCEA producer Nick Accordino wrote on Twitter. “Please know that we hear you.”

Two other executives also praised the passion shared by PlayStation fans.

“This is why I love PlayStation fans – the passion bucket overflows,” Sony’s head of hardware marketing John Koller said. “I love passionate #PlayStation Fans!!,” Sony Worldwide Studios product boss Scott Rohde added.

Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony’s Worldwide Studios, previously claimed that the PlayStation 4 would not be backward compatible but could play used games. No other details were given, however.

Sony is scheduled to reveal new details about the PlayStation 4 at the E3 video game conference in June.
