Will The PS4 Lock Out Used Games?


Just in, reports that a tipster shared some wanted news to Kotaku that the next PlayStation 4 will feature a system that will lock out used games and have no backwards compatibility with the previous PS3 titles. The PlayStation 4 will be named "Orbis" and that it will ship during the 2013 holiday season. There still isn't any conformation that the next Sony system will be actually named "Orbis" or that it could be just a codename.

As these are just rumors, there have been multiple sources citing that "Orbis" will come equipped with an anti-used game system and the games will be on Blu-Ray discs or on downloads, eventually being locked to just one PSN account...

To make matters worse, the sources say that to be able to boot up games, users would have to be connected to PSN. Although, gamers can trade-in their games, but the next person who buys the traded-in game will be subjected to a "limited trial mode" or to some form of restriction on the content.

Other rumors suggest that the next Xbox will also have a system to block used games. It's just a matter of time before any of these rumors are fake or actually become real. Time will tell.

    that's harsh for ps3 owners, I hope xbox don't do anything like this.
    It's always nice to back and play old games once in a while
