    UK OPSM: Interview with Denny - Possiblity of full back cat' w/ Gakai

    Not sure if anyone else here has read the May issue of the UK Official Playstation Magazine, but there is an interview with Michael Denny that sheds a little light on what Sony might have planned with Gakai. He dropped this bomb when asked:

    OPM: Is it true PS4 won't play current-gen PSN games?

    Denny: PS4 won't play PS3 games natively. But through Gakai there's the possibility of having access in the future to a back catalogue of products from hopefully all of Playstation's previous formats
    No link, I'm just reading through the magazine. If I find anything else cool to talk about, I'll put it in here or another thread if it's something real juicy. Cheers from the UK!

    Edit1: Apparently, Jack Black is a Playstation fan. Brutal Legend 2 might be coming to PS4. "#Jackstation"

    Let's hope it's ready for launch, and allows the rental/subscription of very obscure ps3 games.


    i think it would be a stroke of genius [common sense] if Gaikai launched a game as soon as you put a corresponding ps3 disk in the ps4.

    Maths is biased! It keeps telling me the PS4 is 50% more powerful than XboxOne!
    Great song, should have more views :'(

    We've heard this before at the February show.

    Right now it just sounds like Pie in the Sky visions, when its confirmed to happen, then I'll be excited.

    Look at the words he's using, 'possibility', and 'hopefully'.

    edit: Also, Jack Black is turrible. > : (

    Ya know, not having PS3 compatibility is really making me rethink whether I'll be a day one adopter or not. Still have a tonne of PS3 games to get through so makes more sense to stick with the previous console if the new one won't play the titles.

    I guess I'll be expecting E3 to 'wow' me if I'm going to move over right away.

    Long story short, GaiKai at launch would help - if it's reasonably priced.

    Yeah, I think I'll wait, just as I did for the PS3.

    I have a $#@! ton of games for my PS3 that I haven't even started yet. With how little I get a chance to play, I could probably go two years before I finish all of them. The PS4 by then should have gained a lot of traction.

    If they can get this up and running on day 1 it would be awesome. It would be good to be able to go back and play some old Playstation classics without the old hardware. I would have to see it to believe it though because that's a lot games to be made available.

    I'm not paying for a service to play games I already own. Double dipping on PS1 Classics is one thing since I can play those offline and it's one payment, paying $20+ a month or something is ridiculous. Not to mention a lot of publishers won't use this, Bethesda doesn't even do Digital Releases on PSN, so what's the hope of this? Would much rather have Remote Play on PS Vita to play everything on my PS3.

    That's a permanent bandage not a solution. It's still being talked of s a dream, and when it is implemented they will make you buy again something I already own. PS3 you better not break down anytime soon

    Id rather they made some kind of optional addon that allows me to play my own games (at the very least)

    Only way I could see it as good, is if its added to the current $50/year PS+

    I don't care so much about playing my old games on a next gen system as I am of being able to download digital versions of games I never got a chance to buy as a kid.

    The PSN gave me that chance with a lot PS1 classics.

    edit: And yes guys, Jack Black is utter crap.

    It's not like I'm required to trade in my ps3 just because I now have a ps4, day one regardless of how lacking the os might be at launch

    I actually quite enjoy getting my retro gaming on-the-go. My Vita has kept me sane while in London.

    Eh. It's still Gaikai so not super excited, and still eliminates people with bandwidth and data cap issues.

    Either way I'm keeping my PS3 so it should be ok - just a TV button press of switching consoles.

    #IndieStation4 and proud of it.

    I'm cool with this, but not having to re-buy games I already paid for. It's one thing to pay for an HD update of a title I already own...... but not if it's just the same thing as I own now.
