With a price tag of $549 ($50 less than the Xbox One) Sony has revealed that their latest console will play used games with no restrictions– which means that trade-ins and lending/selling to friends will still be possible. Unlike Microsoft, Sony will also not require gamers to connect to the internet before playing games.
The Xbox creators have copped quite a lot of flak when they seemed to drastically change their policy on used games and rentals. However, since the initial backlash, reports have surfaced reassuring the public that used games will still work on the console – but an internet connection at least once every 24 hours to check in these games will be required to keep the Xbox One running.
The launch of the new PlayStation brings with it new titles, including The Order 1886, Killzone Shadow Fall, DriveClub and Knack with over 140 titles also in development. The PlayStation will be launched in time for Christmas.
