Last week Sony had to deal with concerns about what the PlayStation 4 console—which launches later this week—will and won’t do when it comes to media. This week concern comes in the form of something Microsoft had to deal with on their upcoming Xbox One console—used games.
Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida was quick to jump on the issue. “If you are concerned about our new European TOS, we confirm that you are able to sell or share your disc PS4 products, including in EU,” he said in a tweet.
This keeps in line with what the company promoted at E3 2013 which got a great response. Sony even going as far as mocking Microsoft’s then complicated method of sharing and playing used games by making a video showing how game sharing would be done on the PlayStation 4.
Of course, Microsoft has stepped away from their original approach to the whole thing when it sunk in that gamers weren’t feeling it and went back to the more conventional, flexible stance on used games.
