PS4 Not Playing PS3 Games... So What Now?
Posted 25 February 2013 - 10:25 PM
I know all you guys will say ''You just keep your PS3'', true but when the PS4 is out it is more likely that you will be on that instead of the PS3 anyway.
So i just wanted to know what all you guys are going to do because this is the way i feel at least anyway about the situation with the PS4 not playing PS3 games.

So now that we all know about the PS4 not playing our PS3 games, what are you going to do now? What i mean is, i feel like that any game that comes out between now and the PS4 release is kind of not worth it and a waste of money because the PS4 can't play it anyway when it comes out.
I have a similar view point. I will keep my PS3 for as long as it works. But I don't think I'm going to be buying and more PS3 titles that aren't digital copies. It should be a simple process for Sony to acknowledge what digital games you purchased and make them available when they add them to Gaikai. (That's making the assumption that we won't have to repurchase them.) How Sony can go about to verify that the disc copies are actually mine and not like a copy I borrowed from a friend I don't know. As it stands now I have more than enough games the I haven't beaten or even played. So I'll be busy and still behind what I would like to play when the PS4 comes out.
Hopefully it won't takes years to get PS1, PS2 & PS3 games on Gaikai and there should be no shortage of new games to keep me busy in the meantime.
Unreal Tournament III, Mini Ninjas, Spare Parts, Infamous, Ratchet & Clank, Ratchet & Clank 2: Going Commando, Ratchet & Clank 3: Up Your Arsenal, Jak and Daxter: The Precusor Legacy, Borderlands, Sly Cooper and the Thievius Racoonus, Trine 2, The Walking Dead, Sleeping Dogs, Tomb Raider: Underworld, Saints Row: The Third, GOW, Fallout 3, LBP, Dead Space

I think im just going to wait, it seems they just want to get the system out as soon as possible and that's why there dropping backwards compatibility. They even said that they wouldn't have those features at LANCH, so i still think there is hope for the future. Im sure in a year or so the second wave of ps4s will be cheaper and will be able to play all of the classics we know and love.
You will never be able to play your ps3 disc games on a ps4 console. With the structure of the processor being completely different, a hardware solution would be way too expensive (as it was with the ps3 phat and ps2 games). If they introduce a gaikai streaming service for ps3 games on launch, they will not look for a different solution to the problem, why would they? Say they would find a cheap way to let you play your ps3 disc games on ps4 version 2 or 3, you would have no need for the gaikai service anymore and they spent a lot of money on that deal.
Anyway, to get back to topic:
I have about 130 ps3 disc games, so i'm definitely not gonna sell my ps3, but neither would I sell my snes, n64, ps2 or any other gaming system. I will buy the ps4 when it launches and all launch titles that look worth it and depending on how well the gaikai service is running and at what price point, I will keep my ps3 connected to the tv on a different channel, same as my ps2 right now (and yes, I do still use my ps2 from time to time).

I'll still buy PS3 games if I feel I'm going to like it and there are still lots of PS3 games that I want to try. Time is the biggest problem for me.
PS4 won't have lots of games at begining and its hardware might have some problems. So seriously I'll wait like a year for a refined version of PS4.

Just like I still play PS3 after Vita release.

I expect I will sell my PS3 to help fund the purchase, but being as I still have quite a few games to play, I will stick to the PS3 for the forseeable future

Show me thine strength and the strength of thine souls.
Prepare thyself, brave knight.
