Thanks for that explanation. Sony, who released a product that wasn't there, or revealed, had rumors everywhere that you could play PS3 games on the PS4, but not via disc, only download.

The latest rumors about the new Xbox, only hint at the used games. I've heard the Xbox will have Blue Ray, and presumably a different processor, much like the new PS4.

It just seemed strange to me that once again, ala Sony, the industry would put so many roadblocks in front of customers. Your comment on "non tangible media" rings true in all of softwaredom.

I think both companies are trying to build a larger base by attracting non-gamers as well. One of the things that helped spur the sale of the newer consoles is used games.

I'm pretty OK with not having a game console at all ;)
