According to a reveal on Sunday from Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter, Sony Computer Entertainment of America CEO Jack Tretton thinks it would be anti-consumer to block used games with the Playstation 4.

Rumors of next-gen consoles blocking used-games have cropped up over recent months and it is something that Pachter called "the dumbest rumor I've ever heard" in an episode of "Bonus Round" from

Pachter got to talk with Sony of America about what it plans on showing at this year's E3 that starts on June 5 and he said he asked CEO Jack Tretton "point blank" about his personal view on next-gen consoles playing used games.

According to Pachter, Tretton said, "For the record, I'm totally opposed to blocking used games. I think it is great for the consumer that they can buy those. We have a customer that buys our console late in the cycle, pays less and is looking for value-priced games. I think it would be anti-consumer for us to do that."

"I don't know, maybe Japan will think something different but that's my view."
