PS4 backward compatibility

10 Replies 657 Views Created 15-09-2013

All,

 

I'm still undecide wether to pre-order a PS4 or not ...

 

One of the big question on the plate is ... the backward compatibility. I've done some online research but I'm still unsure of the response ...

 

Will I be able to use my PS3 games on my PS4?

 

I've been reading about being able to stream PS3 games in 2014 (which implies that won't be compatibility). But wouldI have to pay - again - to stream the PS3 games I already own ??

 

Thank you.

Sony are aiming to enable us to stream ps3 games on our ps4s, but don't expect that to happen any time soon. US will get it in 2014, though it won't be all games. Rest of the world is tbc.
Gaikai is what you need to google.

Ps3 games won't work on a ps4. There is possibly a streaming service coming to play ps3 games in the future but no ETA for Europe so far. Early 2014 for USA I believe.

What the 2 people above me said is correct. Physical ps3 discs will not be able to be played on a ps4.
Also what country do you live in? Cause getting a release day ps4 via a new pre-order is hard :p

I live in the UK.

I haven't checked - yet - the availibility of the PS4 on the pre-order. 

If it's hard, then it will get easier for me to come to a decision ... I will keep the PS3 and wait a while for the PS4. Maybe a nice PS4 / DriverClub / GT6 bundle :-)

 

Thank you all
