Thank ****ing god.  If they pulled that **** they would have deserved to have their console tank.  Now we wait and see if MS will pull this ****.  I dont think they will though.

This is a manly picnic.  No glasses, no napkins, whisky only, the beverage of true men....... and pretzels.

Yes that's great!
Companies don't make a limit on blu-ray and dvd player owners, and so many other things. Doesn't make any sense!

Good.  Microsoft can't do it now or it will bury them.

I agree with MD, Microsoft won't attempt this now.

This was always a stretch IMO. I honestly don't think neither Sony or MS considered this at one point, and if they did, the idea probably died as soon as it was brought.

I remember these same rumors around the time the PS3 was about to be announced. Expect to hear the same stuff around PS5 reveal

Gameinformer asked the same question and received a vague answer, I am suspecting that there is a catch, second hand games will be played on PS4, but not in the traditional manner we are used to.

Definitely a catch. From the article:

So if someone buys a PlayStation 4 game, I asked, you're not going to stop them reselling it?  "Aaaah," was Yoshida's initial answer, but seemingly only because he'd forgotten his line. "So what was our official answer to our internal question?" he asked his Japanese PR advisor. The advisor stepped in but didn't seem to answer clearly, at least to my ears. Yoshida then took control again firmly: 
"So, used games can play on PS4. How is that?"

At the very least I think we'll see a PSN Online Pass for all single and multiplayer games. To me it sounds like used games will be allowed...but you have to pay SONY x dollars before you do it.
