Your move, Microsoft.
The announcement that Sony’s next system will not change the way we play used or borrowed games was met with nonstop deafening applause. Promising gamers that the system will not have restrictions on used games and that we’ll be able to borrow and sell games at our leisure, the PlayStation 4 seems to be the game console that people were expecting.
Today, Sony proved that the future of gaming doesn’t need to be this dark, dismal place where people are limited on what they can do with their property. Hooray.
Additionally, the PlayStation 4 doesn’t need to do online checks with disc-based games. It’s been reported that the Xbox One will require an internet connection at least once every 24 hours to verify ownership of games. PS4 does not have this restriction. Another win for Sony gamers.
