This week we've been following along with the release of the Sony PlayStation 4 and even stopped by the event to see what all the hype was about. One of the biggest questions that continues to appear is "will the PlayStation 4 play used games?" The answer seems to be yes - from what we've heard and what both Eurogamer and Engadget (amongst others) have heard, used games will function on the PlayStation 4.
