Sony has made its stance clear on whether PlayStation 4 will restrict used games. It won't.
Unlike Microsoft's Xbox One, you'll be able to trade in your PlayStation 4 games, sell them in your local shop, lend them to a friend or keep them forever with no restrictions.
Sony exec Jack Tretton made the announcement this morning during the company's E3 2013 press conference to huge cheers from the audience - the biggest of the event so far, and likely of the whole day.
"We believe in the model that people embrace today with PlayStation 3 and will continue to demand," he said.
Disc-based games don't need to be online to play, or to connect online at all for any type of authentication.
Single-player games will never need to be played while online at all.
"And it won't stop working if you don't authenticate for 24 hours," Tretton concluded.
Sony's has also released a short YouTube clip trolling Microsoft, showing just how easy it is to share you PlayStation 4 games. Coupled with a pricetag that is £80 cheaper than Xbox One, Sony ended its E3 showing with a roar.
