Yes, I read that Smile

It was still a speculation at that time, and not a confirmation. Good to start a thread with a confirmed model.

Psst all you Xbox One haters: Sony has been lying to you. So secondhand games on the PS4 are unrestricted right? NO! Just read that, like the X1, it will allow publishers to place any restrictions they desire on secondhand games. So sorry, no free lunch for you as well.

At least Microsoft didn't hide anything from the public. This is downright deception on Sony's part.

RE: PS4 confirmed, will sell for £349

There is a lot of rubbish flying arounf the net at the moment to do with PS4 & Xbox One , one source has claimed that the restictions of second hand games on the Xbox One is basicly a load of rubbish, though yes Xbox 360 games will not work.

 

Just take things with a pinch of salt until further details have been released by Sony and Microsoft because 3rd party news groups just love to talk

I can see why they didn't show the PS4 at launch.  It's hideous. 

Still, as a current XBOX owner, I'm so far more tempted by the PS4 than XB One.

Over to T3 old friend. Like Microsoft, Sony themselves will place no restrictions, but unlike MS they were being a touch too economical with the truth as third-party publishers can place restrictions.

landzw - this much is official and does not require further interpretation:

Both MS and Sony employ DRM (see my reply to ProfessorHat), insomuch as while they themselves place no restrictions, they will allow 3rd party publishers to do as they please for 2nd hand games. That's all there is to it.

Well, Sony allowed publishers to region lock PS3 games, but the publishers hardly ever locked them. I don't see this as a problem.

RE: PS4 confirmed, will sell for £349

A bit too early too tell. The genres I love i.e. RPGs/adventure have no replay value for me, and I'd like to think that I could sell/trade them legally. But the publisher of Fallout, Bethseda(?) are still 'thinking about fees'. And I'll bet EA are 'thinking' too. And they have the games I love i.e. Fallout, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, as much as I'd love to hate the electronic fascists.

At the moment, PS4 seems to have the upper hand: more powerful, almost no DRM, requires no internet connection and is £80 cheaper than the Xbox One.
