Sony's Playstation 4 isn't limited like Microsoft's Xbox One

Sony logoDuring an E3 press conference yesterday, Sony confirmed that its upcoming $400 Playstation 4 console will not be limited by the same hobbling restrictions as Microsoft's Xbox One.

First off, the PS4 will allow users to play pre-owned games, which they can then trade, lend or sell.
