Check your friends list, she should be there. If she doesn't show up, request friend info and refresh, she should show up than. Just jump to her ship.

It's not impossible, if you bought the Super Earth Edition just give her the free download code, and have her try to jump on your ship.

Yes, PS3->PS4 and PS4->PS3 crossplay works.  I've been on both sides.  

 

From PS4, you can see your PS3 friends in the main PS4 menu, and can see that they are playing Helldivers.  Inside Helldivers, on the "Friends" screen you will see that your friend in Online, but it will not show their helldivers game info by default.  Highlight their name and press square to see their Helldivers info and then you can join.  Every now and then I get "Teleport boot failed" when my friend is on the bridge and I have to wait for them to start a mission before I can join.

 

From PS3, it's very similar, but you can't see if your PS4 friends are online from the XMB (unless it's changed recently). When you view your friends list from inside Helldivers, I don't think you see the PS4 friends as Online, but press square and the info will show up.

Make sure you both are playing on the same NAT type too, to decrease any match making problems Smiley Happy
