PS4 will not put any restrictions on used games, Sony's Jack Tretton said today. Gamers can buy PS4 games, trade them in, lend them to friends or keep them forever. Loud cheers. He was drawing several points of comparison, obviously, to the Xbox One.
No periodic online check-ins. "It won't stop working if you haven't authenticated for 24 hours," Tretton said. No registration of games.
To be fair, whatever good things Microsoft expects to be offering by guaranteeing game developers that Xbox One gamers will regularly connect to the Internet won't necessarily be evident for PS4 games. But it's still on Microsoft to show consumers what those benefits would be.
