PSN purchases transfer to PS4?

6 replies 1330 views Edited Jul 7, 2013

I have tv series' and movies bought on my ps3. my question is does anyone know if it'll transfer over to the PS4 automatically. or would i have to USB it and transfer the files. And if the USB is the way to go are you sure the Videos will be playable on the new hardware or will it be locked to ps3 only.

Originally you weren't able to re-download movies or TV show episodes you purchased previously, but this has now been changed, probably in preparation for PS4, so yes most likely they will transfer.

Keep your PS3 and you don't have to worry about it

Logic, who would've thought eh? Oh wait.... No one thinks anymore.

Movies and TV shows transfer. PS1, 2 and 3 games do not.

While you couldn't re-download video purchases, you could back them up to an external drive to move them to a newly-activated PS3.

 

If you can now re-download purchases, that would be awesome.

Why not go check? I checked mine and found both movies I've purchased in the past, Transformers 3 and Paranormal Activity 4, available for me to re-download. And everyone has reported the same thing. So it appears the policy has been changed, probably in preparation for PS4 in order to make the transition easier.

I would, except that I've never actually bought any video content from the PSN.  The only PSN video that I 'own' is the God of War Unearthing the Legend that I got free with (I think) God of War III (and going to the store only presents me with the option of purchasing it for $10).
