Sony US boss 'opposed to blocking used games'
Also admitted that his overlords in Japan 'might think something different'
Looks like SCEA CEO Jack Tretton has admitted that he personally does not support the idea of potentially blocking the use of pre-owned games, but...
Analyst Michael Pachter told in GT program Bonus Round, that he had asked SCEA CEO Jack Tretton about the possibility of consoles which block used games.
Tretton responded that used games are “great for consumers” and that it would be “anti-consumer” to take steps against the trade.
However, apparently, he also stressed that his view is entirely personal and admitted that his overlords in Japan “might think something different”.
So, does that means he knows what SCEJ is thinking?
This could as well indicate that anti pre-owned tech WILL be included in PS4, as previous reports said!
Let's hope not.
