Sony, June this year:

"PlayStation 4 won't impose any new restrictions on used games. This is a good thing," said Tretton, to huge applause from the audience in attendance. "When a gamer buys a PS4 disc, they have the rights to that copy of the game."

Sony's Software Usage Terms, updated today:

6.3. You must not lease, rent, sublicense, publish, modify, adapt, or translate any portion of the Software.

7.1. You must not resell either Disc-based Software or Software Downloads, unless expressly authorised by us and, if the publisher is another company, additionally by the publisher.

Liars. Similar language has been found on the boxes of previous PlayStation models, but that's hardly a comfort.

Sony has confirmed that despite the update to the PSN Software Usage Terms, you'll still be able to resell your disc-based PS4 titles.

Shuhei Yoshida issued the following statement on Twitter

If you are concerned about our new European TOS, we confirm that you are able to sell or share your disc PS4 products, including in EU.

They meant to say that you cannot copy disk & than sell it.
