Sony’s Tretton is against used-games for PS4, thinks it’s anti-consumer

Posted By | On 14th, May. 2012

Jack Tretton, the SCEA president, has revealed in GT Bonus Round via Analyst Michael Pachter, that he isn’t interested in used-games technology for the PS4, and also believes it’s anti-consumer. He is also the same man who said Final Fantasy 14 was going to be available “only on the PS3”. I kid…

But Tretton revealed that what he wanted was not the collective opinion of his colleagues in Japan – most notably the people who make PS3’s firmware and designed the whole system. I always believe Sony should shift from Japan to the US, but oh well.

So why are we talking about used-games here? Because both the PS4 and the Xbox 720 is rumoured to have some sort of anti-used games tech which is supposed to kill the used games market. It remains to be seen if Tretton’s words are indeed true, but I doubt he can influence the creation of the PS4.
