Gaikai service's and storage

22 replies 335 views Edited Jul 21, 2013

     Gaikai service's what does this mean for games already bought and stored on the server PS3 games etc., Because I was wondering will Gaikai be a paid service? if "YES" does that mean I have to pay for games that I already own as digital versions to download them again if I choose to uninstall them at some point, and will the ps3 disc game work on the ps4 because all I've been hearing is Backwards Compatible though Gaikai service only.

       Last thing will the PS4 support external hard drive suppost because a 500 GB drive just isn't big enough when most game's at high graphic content are at best 40 GB in size

The PS4 is not B/C with the PS4, so no, PS3 discs will not work in the PS4, some PS1/2/3 games will be able to be streamed to the PS4 via Gaikai.

 

I'm not sure about Gaikai being a paid service but you will need a PlayStation Plus Subscription (currently ($49.99 a year) to be able to play online with the majority of games.

You'll be able to swap your HDD just as you can in the PS3 now.

 


Hope this helped!

Through Gaikai's service you will NOT be downloading these games AT ALL. It's all STREAMING. You're playing the game remotely on a server over the internet basically. As such you will want a very good internet connection. So no storage necessary.

They have confirmed you can swap it out. Built in means nothing

Built in just means it comes with it, it is swappable, trust us.

Gaikai is a streaming service for the PS4, not the PS3, at least I don't think it's for the PS3, the disc games you own will only be playable on the PS3, not the PS4, Gaikai will allow for some PS1/2/3 games to be streamed to the PS4.

It is in fact coming to PS3 as well, at the same time it rolls over for PS4. And it will ALSO roll out for Vita as well at a later date.
