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.

Sure, but this is just legalese against piracy.

NOTHING TO SEE HERE
.. you can still sell your PS4 games just like your PS3 games, just like your PS2 games, just like your PS1 games.

All those consoles had this legalese. It was just copy and pasted on the next box.

What part of this:

"You must not resell either Disc-based Software"

do you not understand?
