Question on Instant Game Collection for PS4

3 replies 131 views Edited Jun 13, 2013

I understand that my Playstation Plus account will continue on to my PS4, but I'd like one question clarified.

 

All the games on my PS3 that I have downloaded, will I be able to stream those through the Gaiki service on the PS4?

 

My thought process is simple, I'd like to be able to trade in my PS3 to offset the price of the PS4 and/or buy several games at launch.

 

Will I be able to play my downloaded GTA IV and Infamous 2 at launch on the PS4?

Don't know yet....the Gaikai service, while purchased by SONY, and announced as a potential streaming service, is not guaranteed.   Nor do we know when it will begin service, under what conditions, at what cost, or if there will be any way to "register" your existing games.

 

More than likely SONY will announce more details around the time the PS4 launches, but today we're all in the dark.

Yea but they didn't say which PS3 games will be able to be streamed. It's only going to be specific games when it comes out.  Again we'll have to wait until later when they give us more information on it.
