PS4 always online? Never a consideration, says Sony

Rumors that the next generation PlayStation 4 would possibly require being “always online” were trounced by Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida who spoke with Game Informer in their latest issue. The main reason, says Yoshida, is that “many countries don’t have robust internet connections.” But requiring a consistent internet connection could also potentially destroy the used video game market. Yoshida recently confirmed used games would work on PS4, a rumor that’s had PlayStation 3 owners up in arms, although some type of activation code may be required for pre-owned video games. Unfortunately, he did note PS Dual Shock 3 Controllers will not work with PlayStation 4.

As far as rumors concerning the next Xbox needing to be always connected, the latest reports say this is not true. The next XBox will be able to play a Blu-ray Disc, watch live TV, and play single-player games (which don’t require an internet connection), reports Ars Technica.
