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.

You don't need to for steam, because the sales make everything deliciously cheap.

I've ~300 games in my library, and I've played ~15 of them. The others seemed cool, and were cheap, so I got them just in case I felt like playing them some rainy day.

Also; I've spent the equivalent of about 10 console games to get all of those, and there are a fair few 'AAA' titles amongst them.

Just pointing out that there's no point in reselling steam games, because they cost approximately the difference between shelf price and resell value, or less.
