PS3 to PS4

13 replies 273 views Edited Sep 2, 2013

Has anyone heard If I purchase a game on PS3 and download it, will I have to repurchase it for PS4 or will I have access to download it to the PS4?

Neither.

 

You wont' be able to play PS3 games on PS4, digital or not.

 

The only way to play PS3 games will be through the Gaikai Streaming service in 2014, and exact details on how that works is unknown.

Buying PS3 games for the PS4 would be stupid, yes.


Buying PS3 games in general, not stupid. Unless for some reason, you want to sell your PS3, which I think would be dumb.

I'm not going to let a release of a new console get in the way of enjoying the upcoming games of the ps3, besides there is no reason why to give up the ps3

Why? Your PS3 isn't going to explode when the PS4 drops, and there's no law against having two consoles hooked up.

Cap it's so logical it's hard to understand.

This is something I never understood. If you selling it for ps4 money I understand. But if not keep it and buy games. Hook up to same tv. better yet if you have another tv in house hook ps3 to that- you will get Blu ray gaming device in that room.
If you add me- let me know your from forum. I get a lot of request.
