Walid Miled has responded to rumors about the PS4 and Xbox 720 blocking used games, according to a report by Now Gamer on Feb. 8. The associate producer at Spiders Studio believed that, by implementing a mechanism to prevent second-hand titles, Sony and Microsoft will “just kill every way to lower the prices for games and make them available to everyone.” He alleged that being able to buy used games was good and wasn’t really killing the market as much as piracy. You can check out some fan made concept images of the PS4 and Xbox 720 in the slideshow at the top of this article.
Microsoft has been recently reported as to requiring a constant online connection in order for the Xbox 720 to operate, thus blocking used games. Sony also recently filed a patent that prevent second hand titles from playing on their system, which may be implemented on to the PS4. Both next-generation systems are expected to be coming out in North America later this year.
