***PS3 online connected with PS4 online***

11 replies 10963 views Edited Oct 2, 2013

Does anyone know the answer to this? 

I don't want  to buy a PS4 right away if you can't play with your friends online that still have a PS3.

You can NOT play with you PS 3 using friends while using your PS 4.

Without sufficient info, I can only assume that A) you have the finances to be able to purchase a PS4 right away, and B) your friends do not. You want to play multiplayer games but the games you want to buy are for both PS3 and PS4 and you would prefer to buy the PS4 version of the game since you would have the choice. So that is the only problem, like Jason said, you can not as of now, I have not really heard otherwise. I am guessing it's like a game on multi platforms, you can't play multiplayer games on your PS3 against some one with the same game on an XBOX 360, different hardwares even though it's the same game. Same situation with PS3/PS4 different hardware.  But I don't know otherwise, I haven't heard if it would be possible. Check the "Everything We Know About The PS4" thread, the answer may or may not be there, I haven't read it myself (all the way) so I can't say either way.

@CradleOfFish: Without sufficient info? There are multiple articles online about this... -_-

@Lugosi: To answer your question, no, the PS4 cannot, and will not Cross-Play with any games on the PS3.

I think Final Fantasy XIV might be the exception. I know it already allows PS3 and PC crossplay, so it would be weird if the PS4 version were gated off.

 

Edit: Looks like the PSN titles Helldivers (PS4, PS3, Vita) will also offer crossplay. So it seems to be up to developers.

I'm not sure I got the question totally but I'll try to answer.

 

1. If you have a PS4 and your friends don't lets use Battlefield 4 as an example here, you will not be able to play BF4 with PS3 BF4 owners.

 

2. If you are on about being online through your username on PS3 and PS4 although not confirmed i'd make a pretty solid bet that logging into either one while on one already would sign you out of one of the consoles.

only select games like DCUO and maybe a couple others but not BF4 because match sizes will be larger. I could really maybe only see fighting games but not something like AC4 or watch dogs because their will be much more detail and space on those maps

I meant without sufficeint info on to why the OP is questioning his future PS4 purchase, he didn't mention that his friends can't get one only that they may not be.

@Aurelia, no you can be connected to PSN at the same time, with the same account, on both PS3 & 4 at the same time. Not sure about the vita, don't have one.

But yeah, whenever the monthly ps+ games come out, I usually get home from work and do one console while I'm playing the other.
