I would say no because then the ps4 people would get **bleep** off that the ps3 are on their paid service.

Probably not, but then again, PS3 and Vita cross plays, and sony wanted to "Unify" the network. Wont be a surprise if it turns out you can.

I doubt it, but it would be pretty cool if you can. We'll just have to wait and see

Depends on the game.

If devs allow that
PC and PS3 along with PS4 can play Final FantasyXIV together. DCUO will allow PS3 n PS4 to play with each other.
Going to have to check the games to find out.

Yes.  There is a strong possibility.  Here's an article to show that it may happen sooner than we think.... Also, don't forget that F2P Online games do not require plus!!!

DC Universe Online PlayStation 4 Version Looks Great, Will Likely Be Cross-Platform With PS3



It's been a long time since I've played Sony Online Entertainment's DC Universe Online (in fact, it was prior to the shift to free-to-play). After seeing it running on PlayStation 4 though, I'm considering a jump back in later this year.

I sat down with Jens Andersen, senior creative director on the title (and the voice of some of its characters, including Aquaman) to discuss how the move to the new system is coming along. The overriding theme of the conversation was about the community. "We don't want players to make the choice to upgrade to the PlayStation 4 version and leave their friends behind," Andersen explained. Though, the drastic improvement in fidelity is certainly going to be a motivating factor for diehard fans.

The team understands that players are invested in their characters and that the 11 million global registered users (across PC and PlayStation 3) might be hesitant to abandon that progress. For that reason, profiles and characters will transfer over. Additionally, Andersen and his team are working hard on cross-platform play. "It's our intention for players on both consoles to be on the same servers," Andersen told me. "Talks are going well."

The team would also love to see the barriers between PC and PlayStation to come down, but legal and business reasons (and not technology) have kept those servers separate. Unexpectedly, content will continue to roll out on all platforms at the same time. For those that haven't yet played, four DLC packs are released each year. Players can continue to experience DC Universe for free, but spending $5 per month automatically bumps an account to "premium" status. The legendary membership at $15 per month (the same as the subscription fee when the title launched), gets players in-game currency and additional gifts.

I asked about new Joker content given that Troy Baker has assumed the role for Warner Bros.' Batman: Arkham Origins. Jensen told me that Mark Hamill did come back and do The Last Laugh DLC, but now that he's retired from the role, the character might not have new material. A new actor would mean having two different voices for the Joker within the game, which would be jarring.

Down the line, second-screen functionality is planned for addition, but Andersen wasn't able to tell me more.DC Universe Online is slated for the PlayStation 4's launch window, and the team would love to be on the system day and date with the console's arrival later this year.
