Sony denies change in policy on selling used PlayStation 4 games
Sony's Yoshida questioned on Twitter
Everybody knows what Sony’s stance on used games and the ability to sell them for the PlayStation 4 has been for awhile now. This stems from their announcement that you can do pretty much anything you did in past generations at E3, including them making a little promo video poking fun at Microsoft’s decision not to at the time. However, a little bit of an uproar occurred today when somebody noticed a change in Sony’s terms of service on their website.
The terms of service on the Sony website now has a section that says “”You must not resell either Disc-based Software or Software Downloads, unless expressly authorized by us and, if the publisher is another company, additionally by the publisher.” This obviously seems to differ greatly from their previous stance and an odd change to change right before the launch of the new console.
Luckily, it appears that this change won’t cause any issues as someone asked Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida on Twitter “Hi, Can you explain me this please, Can I sell my own games on Ps4?” Yoshida’s response was a simple “yes.” This isn’t much of a response, so I have a feeling we will hear more about this in detail in the coming days as this situation gains more legs in the gaming community.
