10 replies 798 views Edited Aug 17, 2013
i was wondering if ps3 games will run on the ps4 and if games that were bought of the playstation store can be transfered to the ps4 because i have a lot of plastation store bought games that i downloaded and i would want to transfer it to the ps4 instead of keeping it on the ps3 since the tv im using only has 2 hdmi slots and one is being used for something else.

No. They've already confirmed PS4 is not reverse compatible, BUT they said there may be a cloud streaming service in the not too distant future, which allows you to play certain PS3 games, on PS4.

The name of the streaming service is "Playstation Now" you can find some more information here, for example:

 

http://blog.us.playstation.com/2014/01/07/playstation-now-streaming-game-service-coming-this-summer/

 

Closed Beta is starting end of January, the service is supposed to be available in summer this year (only US though, other countries have no defined date yet).

 

@migue_loboI will wait until 2015 with getting a PS4. The games available so far I don't need to play, and my PS3 still has some great games to it which I have not yet played. No reason to get a PS4.

@ Foofoghter I agree I'm holding out on getting the PS4 waiting on Tom Clancy's The Division which is suppose to be out late 2014 but the rumor mil is saying it won't be until 2015.

Before the ps4 was released lots of rumors went around that ps3 games did work on ps4 but obviously that hit us pretty hard in the face.

I'm waiting for The Division as well Smiley Very Happy The latest I think we'll be waiting is anywhere between January, to March of 2015. I hope it comes out in 2014 though Smiley Tongue 

 

We should play The Division when it comes out Smiley Happy
