Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida has suggested that the upcoming next-gen console from Sony will not render used games unplayable.
"[The general expectation by consumers is], they purchase physical form, they want to use it everywhere, right? So that's my expectation," Yoshida told Eurogamer.
Pressed further by the site's editor Tom Bramwell, Yoshida checked with his advisor for the party line before stating, ""So, used games can play on PS4. How is that?"
We reckon that's fine, Shuhei; and rather dandy too.
Of course, Sony have incorporated the use of online passcodes into their first-party games for PS3, so there's perhaps no reason to suspect that might change, but we'll have to wait and see.
