His exact words were "PlayStation 4 won't impose any new restrictions on used games" fast-forward by a little over half a day and the company seems to be taking a few steps back from that statement.

In an interview with Game Trailers, Tretton stated that while Sony's first party created games will not feature DRM, third-party games will be at the full control of their developers.
