PS4 and PS3 crossplay

14 replies 4719 views Edited May 19, 2013

While I doubt that anyone has an answer, what do you guys think will happen between the ps3 and ps4?  I.e. AC4 is on both system, and will the mulitplayers be able to play with each other? or probably not because ps4 has more proccessing? That leads me to my second question, ps3 games emulated on the PS4 through Gaikai, would those be able to play with PS3 consoles?  I.e. an emulated mw2 vs a mw2 on a ps3?

 

What are your thoughts?

Don't think it will happen. We couldn't do it on the PS2 with the PS3, so it doesn't seem likely. And the games aren't going to be emulated, they are going to be streamed.

We don't know yet, but I don't think so. You'd be streaming the game from the Galkai service, not console to console.

That, and the fact that older games will no longer have any support from the developers to keep the online component running, in the sense of patches and banning hackers, I highly doubt through Gaikai, there will be many games supporting online play.

I've played the OnLive, which is very similar to what Gaikai will be.... OnLive streams games to a small box, no bigger than the size of an external hdd. And even does similar things to what the PS4 will do such as having the ability to have people watch what you play or live stream to the internet....

Its pretty laggy when it comes to fast paced games, where twitch-like reflexes are needed.... other games are fine though, they play smooth. Although the overall image quality is SLIGHTLY lower but it can be overlooked. 
And you'd need a pretty good internet connection because, thats what you're playing through.... if you're downloading games and such, or torrenting on another computer, goodbye to using OnLive without getting very upset.

Pair that experience I had, with trying to play already streamed games on online-multiplayer, and you've got some stuff to workout.

Now what Sony has said, is that WHILE the game is being streamed, you are downloading the game locally, so that might be the mitigating factor in streaming gameplay which OnLive suffers from.

Seeing as how Sony is obviously going to live up to their 10 year support of the PS3, as they have done with the PS1, 2 and PSP, its pretty safe to say that some PS3 games will still maintain an online component.... but don't forget that most games are not going to be fully supported by the developer to deliver patches and such, as most games that are more than a year old, pretty much have zero support.

Furiously Chaosing

I get you so horked up

Proof? And a message board posting or internet "article" that's rife with speculation does not constitute "proof".

If the PS3 and Vita can support crossplay, the PS3 and PS4 without a doubt will support it as well. There's already talk about GT6 coming out for PS4 after the Holiday season, that might be our first taste of PS3 users interacting and playing with PS4 users.

Keep in mind that PS3 games are written around a different architecture.
