PS4 and PS3 players play online together?

21 replies 39838 views Edited May 8, 2013

As the title say, can ps4 play online with ps3 players? since most games are coming out for both systems, it would be a disappointment if the online servers for both systems be seperate.

We don't know.

 

The final specs and operating conditions of the PS4 are only rumors at this point.  There may be more information given at E3 in June.

** Use a unique password for your PSN ID - one you don't use anywhere else **
** Engage brain before putting mouth in gear ** ** two-step verification - use it **

I think once the whole Gaikai backwards compatibility thing gets worked out, then yeah you should be able to. If Halo 2 players could play cross console last gen I don't see why we couldn't do the same thing almost 10 years later.

I figured this shouldn't be an issue. I got a lot of friends playing call of duty or ff11/14...was wondering.. would suck if you can have your psn friends on your list but can't play cause they on ps4 or ps3.

maybe it'll be on a game by game basis
I could imagine the upcoming Destiny game like that.

If they intend to keep the whole PSN thing together then why shouldn't gamers be able to play/communicate with each other?

I hope so because i'm not planning to buy the PS4 for a while, and I wouldn't want to be left behind while all my friends are playing the PS4.

It would also be cool if you could play online with streamed PS3 games by Gaikai, i.e. you buy Uncharted 3 for the PS4 and be able to play with all those who have it on PS3.

If the vita and ps3 can play together, i'm sure the ps3 and ps4 will be able to.

Technically you will be on the same network, just a different system

I can see unified friends list and communication but not crossplay within a game.
