ps4

5 replies 96 views Edited Jul 15, 2013

I'm kinda in a catch22 atm. I have traded most of my ps3 games in and will be trading my ps3 in as well when ps4 comes out.

The problem that I am facing is this. I want to get a few new games now but I do not want to buy new games for ps3 if I am not going to be able to play them on the ps4. I thought I would try to get them on digital download as I have with "The Last Of Us" and now I talked to sony multiple times and cannot get a answer as to if digital downloads will be playable on the ps4. 

Can anyone tell me if this is going to be possible? I would hope so and if it is then that would be great I can just get any games that come out now as digital downloads and be able to play them but I am not sure this will be the case.

 

Also does anyone know if sony plans on making music unlimited playable while in game? That to would be a great things.

Any answers you can give to these questions would be greatly appreciated.

Regards

Erik

As far as I know, your digital downloads will not be playable on PS4.

However, it is rumored that Gaikai will be able to stream PS3 games, so you will most likely still be able to play the games if you decide to use Gaikai.

You will be able to play some games of the PS3 in the PS4 sometime in 2014 when Sony release the cloud service Gaikai as for selling the system if i were you i would not sell it PS3 has a good library of games and there will be more awesome games release in the coming years just because Sony will release the PS4 doesn't mean the PS3 is finished they will continue to support the system for many years to come

Gaikai is a service that will "host" the game you wish to play.  It will then stream the video to your console, like Netflix does with movies.
