SCE World Wide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida continues to answer gamers' lingering PS4 questions, shooting down the rumors that the console might require an always-on Internet connection.

Both the PlayStation 4 and next Xbox have been rumored to require always-on Internet connections in order to play games, but Yoshida stated that's not the case for Sony's upcoming system, despite its focus on social interaction.

Speaking with Eurogamer, Yoshida confirmed that the PlayStation 4 is usable offline. "Oh yes, yes, you can go offline totally. Social is big for us, but we understand there are some people who are anti-social! So if you don't want to connect to anyone else, you can do that."

Earlier today Sony offered vague reassurances that the PS4 won't block used games, shooting down another unpopular rumor which should make gamers happy.
