Will I ever be able to use my current PSN games on PS4?

5 replies 186 views Edited Sep 27, 2013

I'm thinking about purchasing Playstation Plus now, but really don't feel like "keeping my ps3" as a solution to all the games I'll get in addition to all the PSN games I already have. Will this Gaikai service address this concern of mine? For example - I have purchased every FInal Fantasy game available on PSN. I want to carry them over to PS4 and call it a day. Will this be possible?

I do not know what Gaikai will provide as far as PlayStation Network games. They most likely won't be able to carry over early on or if at all.

At E3 in June of this year, Sony said that starting in 2014 Gaikai streaming service would give "immediate access to a catalog of critically acclaimed PS3 games" to PS4 owners. At this point in time, nobody knows which "critically acclaimed PS3 games" will be available with Gaikai. Here is a YouTube video where Sony talks about Gaikai.

I looked through the "everything we know so far" thread before I posted this and found a bunch of info, but nothing that addresses my question. I think it would be pretty lame if I can't play my PSN games on PS4.

If you found nothing by looking through that thread allow me to answer your question directly, friend. The PS4 does not play PS3 games, digital or physical, natively. To play any PlayStation software from older systems you will have to wait for Q1 of 2014 when Gaikai is rolled out in NA. No details have been released on how it will work and if previously purchased content will be available for free. Just wait.


Surely happiness must taste like mud.

Fabulous!
