What's the final word on PS4 backwards compatibility?

22 replies 371 views Edited Oct 27, 2013

Sony has confirmed that the PS4 will not natively support PS3 games. But I don't think they've ruled out console emulation of PS2 or PS1 games. It would make sense to have console emulation for games of consoles that are no longer in production.

Sony said they would eventually like to have past PlayStation system's librarys on Gaikai.

I'm really looking forward to Gaikai on the PS4. I never got a PS3 and there are a lot of titles that I need to play.

The final word was said a long time ago... like when Gaikai was announced. PS3 games, and then eventually PS2 and PSOne games.

I'm not buying that they're moving every PS1/PS2 title to Gaikai. It just doesn't sound like it's worth the trouble.

Well I think almost everything regarding old games will be available in Gaikai but we have to wait sometime after the PS4 gets home and then we shall see what happens.  We should focus more on the console getting to us and the games for it and that it all works later we can make new threads about Gaikai's thing.

Its' hard to say really since Sony never mentioned any emulation software for PS1 and PS2 titles. It seems they want to use Gaikai for legacy titles.
