Ps4 to play with ps3 players online?

10 replies 8493 views Edited Jun 16, 2013
I wonder if someone with a new ps4 can play online with someone on ps3. Or at least have them on thier friends list.

With a game like dcuo it would make more sense to have ps4 and ps3 on the same server.

I ask because our clan is huge and many wont be getting a ps4 until next year. Also many people dont have the money to preorder one. For those that dont know you can preorder one from best buy for only 25 bucks. Its not a 100% youll get one on lauch day but youll be on a list to get them as they come in some order. Also amazon lets you reserve for no money down, your just charged when its sent off. They will be opening and closing the preordering ps4's as they get more. Gamestop is 100 down but youll get one on release day not matter what. The reason being is gamestop is one of the only companies who bought their ps4's first then take preorders where as other companies take preorders then buy theirs. There are a few companies that buy first. Id check to make sure you get one on launch day.

Hard to say, the main problem is people on a PS4 having to pay and those on the PS3 playing for free.

In my opinion, PS3 owners wont be able to play with PS4 owners. Nothing official on it though.

Im assuming that its yes. Many games that are coming to PS3 and 4, such as diablo 3, will be online, and with the way Vita and PS3 can play together, im assuming that the same will be for PS3 and PS4. I dont see why not.

Because the games will be coded different. Square peg, round hole.

Perhaps, perhaps not. If Gaikai is used, someone on a PS3 could technically play against someone using a PS4 because Gaikai is platform agnostic since no hardware on the user end is being utilized.

I don't think so
But I do see cross platform gaming. PS4-PC and ps3-pc

I don't know if all games will work together across platforms, but I do know for certain that DC Universe online will work across both platforms and I'm also semi-sure that Diablo 3 will as well. Hopefully we get more clarification on this in the future though for the rest of the cross platform games!

As far as everyone stating diablo 3 as coming out for both systems on why they think yes a developer from blizzard on diablo 3 has stated they don't even know yet if players on playstation 3 will be able to play with people on playstation 4, or if you get diablo 3 on ps3 if you'll be able to port your characters over to the ps4. So pretty much its a sit back and wait and hope kinda situation
