Playstation 4 Supports Used Games

It's official, PS4 allows for the sale of used games.

The story is too old to be commented.

Does Playstation still support exclusive games? I've hardly seen any so far.

Great news though.

Its huge, Xbox is the complete opposite to ps4.
This is the biggest news of E3.

buddymagoo1589d ago (Edited 1589d ago )

No online check in either!! And E3 goes to Sony.

LOL_WUT1589d ago (Edited 1589d ago )

Sony just owned MS ;)

The PS4 truly is for GAMERS!

Pyrrhus1589d ago

Despite the somewhat average showing, I really am happy in my decision to support Sony.

Peppino71589d ago

Sony just solidified the next gen war!

JhawkFootball061589d ago

Ahhhh they just announced that you have to pay for Ps+ for multiplayer.

kneon1589d ago

I wonder if we need to put greenpowerz and frigidarkness on suicide watch after these announcements :)

papashango1589d ago

I think he just announced onling gaming being ps+ only

pompombrum1589d ago (Edited 1589d ago )

Have to admit, I was shocked by Sony's conference up until the point used game support was announced.. now Sony just won E3. They dropped some huge bombs on Microsoft and kicked them in the nuts big time.

So long Microsoft, you're now dead to me.

PS+ for mp.. LOL.. is that all you Microtards got as a comeback? Try harder.

What now to those that claimed Sony will have some form or DRM? What now?
Sony listens to their consumer base.

ceedubya91589d ago

Pyrrhus is right. The biggest news of the day isn't necessarily the games, but how the games are played. Sony has finally shown their stance, and took a shot at Microsoft in the process. Xbox had a good showing today, but their online policies will continue to overshadow any bonus points they got today with their games showing. They have to change their online policy while they still have time. They gave Sony a huge advantage.

badz1491589d ago

did you missed the part where he said the President of Sony’s Worldwide Studios revealed that 30 PS4 games in development, 20 of which will be out within the first year, and 12 of which are a new IP?

so...those are games from their own studios which means...EXCLUSIVES!

showtimefolks1589d ago

This is how you do it MS

Used games
No need to connected to NET

Sony a gaming company that actually care about gamers proven by news today

oricon1589d ago

Sorry but sony just ripped microsoft to shreds, they really need to remove that drm stuff if they want to stand a chance before the console is released.

I_am_Batman1589d ago (Edited 1589d ago )

Fatality. Xbox is done seriously if PS4 gets a better price point it's over for MS unless they change their direction until launch which is highly doubtful.

Sitdown1589d ago

But you have to pay to play online. Wow.

Bathyj1589d ago

Youre just whistling in the graveyard arent you?

zebramocha1589d ago (Edited 1589d ago )

If it is more profitable to publish games on the XboxOne and hardware sales between the two are similar, what is to prevent third parties from jumping to the new Xbox platform? Everyone claims it is all about the games, but not many support the people that make them and publish them. This could turn out to be a huge win for Microsoft if they sway any of the larger third parties to support them exclusively. Sony does not have the cash to roll out enough exclusives to keep the PS4 alive if this happens.

silvacrest1589d ago

wouldn't publishers jump to where the install base is? right now it looks like the PS4 will be that console

Death1589d ago

Right now is way too ear;y to tell. Typically, third parties follow the install base. Third parties also help build the install base. If I buy Madden for $60 and it can only be traded in at Gamestop once, what happens to the value compared to a copy on the PS4 that can be traded multiple times? If the publisher is paid twice for 1 copy and once for a copy sold multiple times used, where is the greater profit margin? Not only would the XboxOne version be more profitable compared to multiples on the PS4, but as gamers the value of your used game went up with it when it can only be resold once. Gamestop will no longer have so many copies of used games that they are only worth 50 cents when you trade them in.

This gamble Microsoft is taking may be huge. They are protecting the publishers/developers and at the same time increasing trade values for customers. Don't get me wrong, I'm not sure how much I appreciate the restrictions, but it's a ballsy move that is quite frankly without presedence. If it works, color me pretty damned impressed.

Megaton! No DRM aswell!

buddymagoo1589d ago (Edited 1589d ago )

It's official Sony just won over gamers across the world!

Thank you for common sense Sony!

Why o why1589d ago

So....Story Dun on that then....No More Grouping

Karpetburnz1589d ago

If its true that you need PS+ to play online, while I'm not very happy about it, I'm still fully supporting PS4, why would PS gamers jump ship to Xbox when they're also charging for multiplayer.

In fact it's better on PS4 because if you dont pay, you will still have access to all your media apps unlinke Xbox which has apps like Facebook, netflix and youtube behind a pay wall.

Ben Dover1589d ago

Microsoft.. you have been owned.

kneon1589d ago

Sony could have skipped the games and just made these announcements and still would have come out on top.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1589d ago (Edited 1589d ago )

yeah sony one e3 easy.

With indie support day 1 alone.

Mikelarry1589d ago
