The head of Sony Worldwide Studios has confirmed that PlayStation 4 will not block used titles.

Rumors have persisted over the past few months that the new platform would incorporate a block on used videogames, though up until now nothing official was said on the matter.

However, speaking to Eurogamer, Shuhei Yoshida said: “Used games can play on PS4.”

“That’s the general expectation by consumers. They purchase physical form, they want to use it everywhere, right? So that’s my expectation,” he said.

Sony unveiled PS4 last night at the PlayStation Meeting, confirming a holiday 2013 release date for its next-generation home console.
