2. Sony blocking used game sales Jan 3, 2013, 21:13 jdreyer
Not only does this tech block used games, but also lending your games to your friends would also be blocked, unless you also loaned them your PS. In addition, this would also destroy the rental market.

It doesn't seem to do anything to prevent piracy though, as I would assume that the RFID check could be bypassed by hackers, allowing the game to be pirated. So this tech really just reduces access to said games for law abiding citizens. Were this to be implemented, I wouldn't be surprised to see piracy jump.
