The company will try to balance pre-order incentives with access
Michael Denny, the senior vice president of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios, says that his company is aware that there are issues surrounding the used-games market, but has no plans to solve them on its own with the PlayStation 4.He tells CVG that, “It’s a massively important issue and I understand why it’s one that keeps coming up and will keep coming up, because people want to know what the exact stance is.”
He adds, “It’s not something that I feel I have any further announcement or comment to make on.”
Sony has already said that the PlayStation 4 will play used games, despite rumors that a RFID tech was being developed to limit their presence.
Presumably, Sony will work with first and third-party developers to make sure that those who buy new games get access to more content.
