Playstation Plus Ps3 to Ps4 question

10 replies 27713 views Edited Aug 28, 2013
Ok, i heard playstation plus will be carrying over from the Ps3 to the Ps4. How will that work? Do i only get to use the amount of time of Ps Plus I had left on my Ps3? And if that is the case, why doesn't everyone buy playstation plus on their ps3 and let it transfer over to the Ps4 to save money? Thanks in advance to anyone with an answer.

PS+ is tied to your account and will cover your ps3, ps4, and ps vita.

Yes the plus membership is not tied to a console, it goes where you go.

Step 1: Sign into account on PS4.

Step 2: since plus carries over, you're set to go

 

You only get PS+ features for your duration of your subscription. Once it's over if you want to continue to use those features you will have to renew.

 

PS+ is universal, there is no Vita, PS3, or PS4 version.

 

Sorry if I misunderstood you.

No, ps3 games just don't work on ps4 at all as there is no backwards compatibility.

Eventually, once Sony's Gaikai service gets up and running, it may allow ps3 games to be playable on ps4, but we don't know if it will allow you to play games you already own for free, or if it will require you to re-purchase the games.
