Before PlayStation 4's official reveal, rumors were swirling that the console would come packing some sort of used games block, disabling a gamer's ability to play pre-owned or shared titles. But Shuhei Yoshida, Sony's head of its first-party Worldwide Studios, has confirmed to Eurogamer that that's simply not the case.

In a rather strange conversation between Eurogamer's writer and Yoshida, a back and forth ended up resulting in the following declaration from the Sony executive: "So, used games can play on PS4. How is that?" The answer came following an exchange between Yoshida and a Sony Japan PR representative, apparently seeking clarification about the particular question being asked.

We've reached out to Sony for official clarification, but considering that this comes from a well-established Sony executive in the know, it's safe to assume that PlayStation 4 will indeed be able to play used games. Crisis averted?
