PS4 Allows Used Games Doesn’t Require Online Connection

e3-13-ps4

In a direct response to Microsoft’s Xbox One DRM and online requirements, Jack Tretton confirmed that you can play used games on the PlayStation 4. He even went so far as to explain what that means with a fancy slide.

  • Trade in games at retail 
  • Sell it to another person
  • Lend it to a friend
  • Or keep it forever

It gets even better because Sony just dropped a handy instructional video on how used games work on the PlayStation 4.

After exciting the crowd with that announcement, Sony fired more shots confirming that there will not be an online requirement. There will be no 24 hour authentication check-in like the Xbox One.

If I’m not tweeting I’m probably just watching Buffy or Firefly for the millionth time.

  • That video is great

  • Talk about taking it to Microsoft. That was awesome and the noise of the crowd.

    Quite possibly the greatest twenty seconds in gaming history.
