does anyone here know if the ps4 is backwards compatible with ps3?

7 replies 110 views Edited Apr 30, 2013

Hi I would like to sell my ps3 if ps4 is backwards compatible because gran turismo 6 might be coming to the ps3 and I am keeping gran turismo 5 and possible 6 if it comes out if I sell my ps3. The reason I wanna sell my ps3 is because I don't have enough money for the ps4 so I am asking if the ps4 is going to backwards compatible since the first gen ps2 and ps3 was.

From what we know, it seems that the PS4 will not support PS3 games via discs. However, it is possible that Gaikai, which will be a a program that allows users to stream games directly to their PS4, will allow PS3 games to be played that way.

Although discs won't be supported, it is still possible that Gaikai will support them. You'll have to wait until more information about both the PS4 and Gaikai is released, though.

I don't think he'll want to watch the entire press conference just to find one section that talks about Gaikai and PS4 backwards compatibility. Do you mind mentioned the times he should watch?

PS4 will not natively support Backwards Compatibility.

If you watch the video, it states that through the use of Gaikai... this MAY be a possibility but don't hold your breath until E3 where its been noted that Sony will divulge ALL information about the PS4. E3 is sometime in June.... I wanna say 13th.


Also.... why not start saving up for the PS4 now? If you can save up $50 OR MORE each month until the PS4's launch at the end of the year, you'll have plenty of money so that you can keep your PS3.

The PS4 won't be natively backwards compatible but Sony is looking in to streaming PS3 games but there are no concrete details on backwards compatibility overall.
