#5 PS4 won’t block used games

"Interviewed last night Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony Worldwide Studios, confirmed: “Used games can play on PS4.”

and there you have it, people... straight from the horse's mouth. further proof that patents don't matter, and people should never take anything they see on the internet that doesn't provide concrete evidence without a grain of salt.

there's a lot of really amazing things listed, but i'm not so convinced by the free-to-play stuff mostly because i think free-to-play is a red herring, and the only way you can really get the full experience of those types of games is by paying money.

Well developers for Free to play games have to make money some how. If they dont charge you for little things to help improve your experience then they would go out of business. Free to play is give you the choice to purchase item. The items are not forced down your throat.

I bet Microsoft is shitting their pants and going back to the drawing board!

It's a little late for that, all they can do now is work on the marketing
ambientFLIER  +   1007d ago
I bet Microsoft knew about all these features long before they were released to the public and have planned for them, and the only people "shitting their pants" are ones that buy into the console wars. Like you.
Saryk  +   1006d ago
Really! Buying into the console wars, wow. Since I am a PC gamer, who loves PCs, but also hardware,who has a PS3 and a Xbox, guess you caught me.

Want to ask you a question though. Did my post upset you so much that made you make that post XBOX fanboi? Or did you just need to show us your intelligence and grace us here with your presence?

PS4 is ticking all the right boxes so far. Keep it up because I am well and truly on the hype train

I liked the part about the share button that allows other gamers to come in and help you in parts of your game if you are stuck. Like remote in on CP.
kayoss  +   1007d ago
I'm excited about this... now someone can help me to platinum certain games. Game such as Gran turismo... damn those license.
ZBlacktt  +   1007d ago
Yep, for me it's those darn God of War challenges, lol. I can't get them all. :(

If the new Xbox blocks used games then that thing will be dead on arrival. I mean tank so hard it will leave a crater.

I dont see how the Vita can have every game streamed to it? It's missing both L2/R2 and L3/R3. It does have the front and rear touch screens to make up for this but now the Dualshock 4 does too.

It's still a very engaging and promising idea though!

>It's missing both L2/R2 and L3/R3

Dude those things haven't changed, they're still there. lol
kayoss  +   1007d ago
Its still there, you have to assign the back touch panel as L2/R2.
trenso1  +   1007d ago
My only gripe is that the options button now takes place for the start and select button
nevin1  +   1007d ago
Thats odd.
trenso1  +   1007d ago
Yea it is don't know why they did that especially since one of the games I'm looking foward to in bf4 what will be the spot button now
