Playstation 3 to Playstation 4 Download Question

5 replies 252 views Edited Aug 16, 2013

Hey im new to the forum and i have a major question that i've been wondering about for a while and others might be too. Say if i buy an upcoming game like Gta V on the playstation 3 and it's on my playstation account and then in a couple of months i buy the ps4 can i redownload Gta V on the playstation 4? Meaning will it still be compatible?

 No.  The Playstation 4 is not compatible with any PS3 game content.  If there is a PS4 version of GTA V, then it will be a separate product from the PS3 version, and you would have to buy it separately.

i still don't see how that'd work because its not a physical copy it should just be able to change. Sony should do that and then they'd get more sales.

The programming instruction sets for the PS3 CPU and PS4 CPU are not the same.  A program cannot just change itself to work with a different piece of hardware.

 

Try installing a Pontiac transmission in a Ferrarri a see what happens  ====> not going to work.
