There’s more news to report about the PlayStation 4 following last night’s big reveal in New York City. So let’s get right to it, shall we?

For starters, Eurogamer is reporting that the PS4 will not block used games. Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida confirmed this during an interview with the website following the event.

Additionally, both Eurogamer and Kotaku have confirmations that the PS4 will not require an always-on internet connection to operate. That’s great news, considering it was one of our burning questions coming out of the event.

On the games side, Guerrilla Games has confirmed Killzone: Shadow Fall will be a launch title for the system, alongside Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs. CD Projekt RED has also confirmed via press release that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be coming to PlayStation 4 in 2014. When the game was originally announced, CD Projekt RED mentioned the title would be hitting  “all high-end platforms” simultaneously, and it’s clear now one of those platforms is the PS4. Now we wait and see if the Xbox 720 (or whatever it’s called) gets the same treatment (it’s likely).

And finally, here are all the game reveal trailers from last night’s show for you to ogle over. Enjoy!
