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.

agreed. lawyers like to copy other's documents and perhaps add even more crap to it. They're inherently very lazy and like earning 400usd+ an hour rates with as little effort (but as much time) as possible. Just because a lawyer put something in there doesn't mean its legal, but they sure know how to threaten you and try to fool you into thinking it is.
