PS4 seems to block used games.

But PlayStation 4, for all we know, might function just like the Xbox One does when it comes to your game discs. Nobody wants to say yet because they believe that the response will focus too hard on what game buyers are losing

I think Baji's hit the meltdown stage :laugh:

"for all we know" said during a hands on analysis with the Xbox One.

Xbox One will allow a fee to unlock used game.

Lets see how Sony plays it card. It Sony does same, no PS4/X1 purchase for me.

Baji is just upset that there is something bad that could be said about the next Xbox iteration. So he is looking for something that will make the ps4 look bad. I am surprised there hasn't been a post from him saying something like: The XboX uses 1w less power than the ps4, so after 50 years you will have saved 10$ on your hydro bills.

Sony has this next gen in the bag if they just do a few things right. Free online, used games, and sticking to what gamers really want.

There is a difference between blocking and charging a fee. He doesn't say that there won't be a fee. He also says 'my expectation' meaning he doesn't know for sure.

Or may be I am using the same article from Wired that Audio and others are using to troll Xbox threads to draw the same pointless conclusion when neither company has said any such thing.

How are we "trolling" Xbox threads, we are just posting what other people are saying about the new Xbox.

Trolling would be creating a PS4 bash thread like a child just because you don't like people speaking bad of Xbox.

Was just using the name they had on the green back ground of the new console.

Xone, and X1 does sound like a cool abbreviation. Odd thing is when I hear Xbox One, I think of the original xbox :(

Agree, not sure if sony will force used games to work w/o fee to try and get customers away from to MS, or if they will join the crowd to try and force it on the console industry.

The article that is talking about fact from Microsofts mouth and conjecture about the PS4 by the article writer, you created this thread like a child just because someone was bashing your precious Xbox.

You seem to confuse facts and guesses. I am making the same guesses and jumping to conclusion that happened with Xbox. No one knows if Microsoft will block used games for sure. Heck even Wired article says that.

No. That's Kotaku guessing.

Neither Microsoft nor Sony has clearly said if you can play used games. All they have said is "you can play used games".

If EA is really ditching its online pass, you can be rest assured Sony is doing the same thing as MS or EA isn't selling for the PS4. I wonder which it is.

EA cannot chuck away millions, if not billions in revenue from sales, but they can do exactly what they have, get into bed with MS as much as possible (DLC, be at their event). Their CEO has stepped down and they're not making their financial forecasts and suddenly EA can go Xbox exclusive?

Honestly, genuinely think about it, FIFA 13 has sold about 6.5 million units on the PS3 alone. Then there was FIFA 12, FIFA 11, and you get the jist of it. That's ONE EA published game alone.

It's nothing more than either a wet dream fantasy, or a disalusion at the amount of money we're talking about thinking a behemoth like EA would go exclusive to either console whilst they remain a 3rd party. Sure someone BUYS EA its a different story, but good luck ponying up for that deal.

That's the point dude. They aren't going to go exclusive, so the bet is on Sony doing something similar to Microsoft. Otherwise EA would still have the online pass program active for PS4 games. They aren't just going to give up the revenue that that program has created - we know pretty well now that that isn't how they operate.
