Update the PS4 Store w/ PS3 content

[ Edited ]
9 replies 274 views Edited Jan 28, 2014

i started buying my ps3 game only before ps4's launch cause i knew ps4 wouldn't support the ps3 disc's so was it all for nothing to buy the digital versions, cause its quite annoying that the ps4 has nothing good for game selection and on top of that i can't  download my digital games which now seems like a huge waste of preparation so idk but i would greatly hope i'll be able to use my digital content on the ps4 soon...........

You're not going to be able to play your downloaded games on tjhe ps4, ever. Unless you're taking part in the playstation now thing

Next time do your research

You downloaded games on your ps3 in preparation for the ps4 launch? Why not just play them on the ps3?

Because that would make sense. Too much sense.

psn4 no psn3 content

I have to say that while I understand (somewhat) why the PS4 isn't backwards compatible for actualy game discs, I don't understand why the store itself dosn't include more arcade and puzzle or simple 2d games from the ps3 network...

 

I mean the ps4 sure as hell can play anything the ps3 does considering the hardware is loads improved and providing some cross platform games from the old network could have really boosted the psn4....

 

Seems like a waste.

 

Signed: home alone with my psn4 n' bored!

Go buy a PS3 it is compatible with a PS3. If for nothing else but the Free games you get from Plus! And at $199 now are a super deal. Playstation Now will solve your backwards troubles this Summer. While I will mostly only buy new games for my PS4 now I am very happy to own a PS4, Phat Ps3 and a Vita along with 2 years of Plus. Gaming Boredom is something I haven't seen.

There are a few PS3 "Cross Buy" games that work on PS3 and PS4. The PS3 game "Flower" will work on PS4 if you buy it for PS3 and one of the "Zen Pinball" games is a "Cross Buy" game that will work on PS4 if you buy it for PS3. Also the "Free" Playstation Plus games for PS4 "Contrast" and "Don't Starve", might as well be PS3 games. :smileywink:

I guess it's kind of like when the game cube was coming out, so I went and bought a bunch of N64 games. Then when the game cube was released none of them were compatible.
