This is in the PS3 TOS as well.

Also, sony already gave permission at E3.   Their thing clearly states unless given express permission, which they already have done.

And if you need any more proof - https://twitter.com/...616172033069057

 

Best thing to come out of this is being able to read the comments section on the front page of Neowin. The title is the best "Sony to disallow resell or renting of PlayStation games after initially supporting it". Posted like a well researched fact.

 

And for even more giggles, this is on the back of the Motorstorm (and every other EU) PS3 game - Motorstorm was like a launch PS3 games http://i.imgur.com/195kpZB.jpg

Yeah, this is pretty much a non-issue. It was in the PS3 TOS, and Sony has been crystal clear since E3 to now that you can sell and trade your games.

according to Neobond, those were updated recently too. Those terms were different in last month. He linked to this on front page.

 

This may mean that they were thinking of banning used games but reversed course but the lawyers forgot to update ToS.

 

Or the more likely scenario of them covering the "you don't own, only license" scene - more common with software.

That's the same file.

 

To be honest, what I'm thinking this pertains to is to buy a disc, burn copies and sell those.  It says you cannot resell your game without express permission -- but in the E3 video, E3 presentation, and in the recently released FAQ, they give express permission.

This whole thread is overruled by Sony's official FAQ!


"Does PS4 support used games?


Yes, similar to the PS3 system today, PS4 will not restrict players from playing disc-based used games. When a gamer buys a PS4 disc, they have right to use that copy of the game, so they can trade-in the game at retail, sell it to another person, lend it to a friend, or keep it forever. Furthermore, users will not have to go through activation steps or be charged usage fees when playing used disc-based games on their PS4 system.


Will any PS4 titles use an Online Pass?

First-party titles on PS4 (titles developed by Sony Computer Entertainment) will not use an Online Pass program. When it comes to third-party titles, PlayStation won’t dictate the strategy of publishers concerning Online Pass programs. However, most third parties have phased out the use of Online Pass systems, so they’re unlikely to appear on PS4.

Can PS4 customers lend and borrow games?

Yes, they can lend and borrow disc-based games without restriction.

Can PS4 customers trade and sell games?

Yes, they can trade and sell disc-based games freely."

The best thing is, is wait till the release days of each system and see where the dice lay. I'm not on the market nor inclined to purchase any new console. At my age, I'm no longer into being up with the latest and greatest.

It just defines the default situation as "no selling unless authorized", which is seems like it is, at least as far as SONY is concerned, as opposed to "can sell unless specifically prohibited". The publisher part is trickier, but I don't think they would want all of the bad blood that comes with a absolutely no resell situation.

 

And I'm still buying a PS4.

Read the news on Gaf before going to sleep last night. Knew it would be a non-issue. Was looking forward to some drama on NW to read tonight though.

 

Disappoint :p
