Reports from various websites claiming that it will be illegal to sell used software for the PS3 has been officially denied by Sony today.
GamesRadar website yesterday reported that Sony was warning high street retailers that the sale of pre-owned games would be illegal due to the licensing terms of PS3 software, which would mean that discs technically remained the property of Sony.
However, a Sony Computer Entertainment UK spokesperson today outright denied that any such message had been conveyed to retailers - telling GamesIndustry.biz
that following conversations with the firm's European parent company, neither division has "any knowledge" of such a strategy.
"We have definitely not been communicating that," UK spokesperson Jennie Kong confirmed. "It's false speculation. We don't have any further knowledge about this topic - either officially or unofficially, to be frank."
