    PS3 content on PS4?

    Ok so I picked up my PS4 yesterday and have to admit I'm impressed.

    Question though, can I download PS3 content onto the PS4? I mean PS3 games I've currently got on my PS3?

    Also, the store on the PS4 looks baron, does it only show PS4 content? For example, the PS+ section only has a couple of games.

    The store only shows PS4 content, and you cant use PS3 content on it

    I though that might be the answer, that sucks!

    It's a step backwards as the PS3 will play PS1 and PS2 downloads. Hope this will be addressed, in the meantime I'll have to hold onto my PS3

    PlayStation Now is NOT backwards compatibility. It's a service.

    As already said you can't as yet, but PS Now will be a streaming service that although not the answer to backwards compatibility will allow you to play PS1, PS2 and PS3 games on the PS4 and various other devices. The only answer to Playstation backwards compatibility at the minute is to buy an original full fat PS3 which supports PS1 and PS2 games as standard, or buy all 3 consoles separately!

    Its a service that adds backwards compatibility, as in it lets you play PS3 games on a PS4 system. Also the poster was asking about being able to play PS3 content on PS4, again PlayStation Now will cover this and thats the reply the poster should be given.

    The PS4 store looks pretty baron for the minute because of the lack of PS4 games out at this point in time but as the year progresses and more games are released the store should start to fill up!

    It's not BC at all because the gamea aren't being played on the PS4. Just being streamed.

    I adore Nintendo for their BC of Wii and DS games on the new systems. So so good.

    And to those saying how there isnt much content on the PS4 atm. Haha. You guus mustn't have got the PS3 at launch :P

    Going have to disagree, to me its BC, because its letting you play PS3 games via your PS4 even if its still a stream but thats my personal view no matter if others think its wrong or right and as i say the poster was asking about PS3 content.

    When my tablet has the streaming app, does that make my tablet backwards compatible with the pS3?? nahhhh...

    That being said,
    OP, you can download Flower on the pS4.

    Pinball Arcade and Zen Pinball 2 are also available for free on the PS4 if you had them for the PS3. There might be a few more too.

    I wish more developers would opt in to upgrade their games for re-release on the PS4 for the $10 charge. I for one hope this will be the case when DIablo 3 releases on the PS4.

    If ND did this with TLoU I would get the PS4 the same day. Hell, just having it available on the PS4 may be enough for me.

    Maybe we'll get something good out of PS Now. Can't wait to see the pricing options and list of available games.

    Maybe it is just me but haven't seen you around in ages! Good stuff to see you posting.

    To me this would mean instant pay day for many developers. Last gen saw a lot of developers re-releasing past gen games redone in HD, and the sales statistics are nothing to laugh at. So why not re-release a few PS3 gems redone to take advantage of the PS4 hardware? If they follow the $10 upgrade their support for this would be huge in my opinion. TLoU re-released on PS4 would be amazing!

    Yeah, it has been awhile! I had a couple of kids (now 4 and 6) and didn't have much time for gaming. I Just started playing again recently and really enjoy the community here. It seems a bit quieter than it used to be but I see a lot of familiar names.

    If Sony does PS Now right, it can be a money pit for them and for developers/publishers! It will be intersting to see how it goes. They obviosly don't want to cut into new games sales but I think they have an opportunity to make a lot of money this year and next year by re-releasing the better PS3 games. After that, there will be enough new PS4 games that may want to shift the focus of the service to another option for new PS4 games and not just legacy games. Not sure if the infrastructure will be ready by then but at least they will have something to build on.

    For now, just give me TLoU on PS4!

    I will have my fingers crossed until official confirmation on Diablo 3 being a $10 upgrade option on PS4. I bought it for PC, PS3, and do NOT want to buy it for full price on PS4....

    Sounds like PS Now will be really awesome if done right. Sucks that there's no backwards compatibility on the PS4 right now but what can you do? It's always a good idea to keep those old consoles around!

    It could be.

    They are most likely use custom server blades in which they have a lot of additional ps1/2 % ps3 boards to run the games on.
    What makes the method interesting is that the game and save data comes from file servers and not from physical media.
    This should improve loading times a lot, especially seek time limited games.
