    "Yes. That's the general expectation by consumers," said Yoshida. "They purchase physical form, they want to use it everywhere, right? So that's my expectation."

    So if someone buys a PlayStation 4 game, I asked, you're not going to stop them reselling it?

    "Aaaah," was Yoshida's initial answer, but seemingly only because he'd forgotten his line. "So what was our official answer to our internal question?" he asked his Japanese PR advisor. The advisor stepped in but didn't seem to answer clearly, at least to my ears. Yoshida then took control again firmly:

    "So, used games can play on PS4. How is that?"

    Lol I've read that too, but there's nothing more than internet speculation going on about what he said. So we shall see.

    I think for people to say developers are "losing" so much money is hilarious. Once their product is purchased for somewhere in the neighborhood of 60 USD and then sold back to a third party they're not affiliated with there "losing" out on an extra profit. That argument is totally hilarious to me, not what you said, but what we've heard from companies like Microsoft about defending their used game policy.

    Greed is all it is. There's absolutely no benefit for the people that will buy the games. Zilch.

    True enough. I guess what should be said is that they are pissed that companies are making a huge profit off it. I worked for Gamestop a few years ago. And they flat said that 90% of their profit is from used game sales. Because they turn around and sell a game, provided it was just released, for five dollars under the actual suggested retail price. And all they had to do was fork over $25 in store credit. The profit they make off it is huge.

    So yeah, you are right. It really does boil down to the companies being flat out greedy. Because had store like Gamestop not come along, this crap would be going on in pawn shops anyway. Except they don't charge as much for used games.

    I too agree with this. That article can be interpreted in any way you see fit.

    It USED to be the one by the IHOP. But they closed it right after I was told they were going to keep me on after the Holidays.
