    PS 4 will allow used games

    Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida has said that the PS 4 will allow used games on the PS 4 and that it will not require an always on internet connection.

    These are both pro GME and consumer measures. This will also make it very hard for MSFT to not fall in line.

      Used games blocking is a red herring at this point. Short thesis right now hinges on the proliferation of digital distribution and streaming games. Yoshida has stated that all PS4 games will be available as a digital download. Free to play or other subscription models could further degrade GME's core used-games business and there is no way for them to replace the high margins that used-games provide. No backwards compatibility will also hurt used PS3/2/One game sales.
