Shuhei Yoshida, head of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios (SCE WWS), has confirmed that current PlayStation Network purchases and saves will not transfer over to PlayStation 4.
Speaking with Engadget, Yoshida-san explained that the reason these features will not make the transition to Sony’s next-generation console is due to the disparity between PS3 and PS4 architecture.
