Wednesday’s PlayStation 4 announcement didn’t answer everyone’s questions but Sony have since denied several rumours.

One of the more controversial pieces of PS4 gossip was the idea of blocking second hand games on the new consoles.

However, the boss of Worldwide Studios, Shuhei Yoshida told Eurogamer: “That’s the general expectation by consumers. They purchase physical form, they want to use it everywhere, right? So that’s my expectation”

He went on to properly deny the rumour, saying: “So, used games can play on PS4. How is that?”

Another rumour was that the PS4 would require a constant internet connection, meaning games wouldn’t be able to be played without internet, regardless of whether the user wants to play in offline or online mode.

This has also been denied. In the same interview with Eurogamer, Yoshida said: “You can play offline, but you may want to keep it connected.

“The system has the low-power mode – I don’t know the official term – that the main system is shut down but the subsystem is awake. Downloading or updating or you can wake it up using either the tablet, smartphone or PS Vita.

“Social is big for us, but we understand there are some people who are anti-social! So if you don’t want to connect to anyone else, you can do that”

During the announcement, the PS4 was confirmed for a release in the 2013 Holidays. Since then, President of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has said: “We’re not saying if ‘Holiday 2013′ includes Europe at this stage.

“We are only saying we will launch the system before the end of 2013, we’re not saying in which parts of the world.

“But don’t infer anything good or bad from that. You can take that anyway you want, but you shouldn’t.”

We’re yet to see what the actual console looks like, but we have been given a lot of information about it which can be read here.
