Sony Confirms PSN Purchases will not Transfer to PS4
Filed under: PLAYSTATION 4

According to Engadget, Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida has confirmed that PSN game purchases will not be able to be transferred to the PS4. Last night during their press conference, Sony already said that the PS4 would not have backwards compatibility with PS3 games, but they also said that they were working on a way to use their Gaikai Cloud service to stream PSOne, PS2, and even PS3 games in the future, meaning not at launch. Of course, they didn't say how this would work, such as if it would require users to buy the games again.

Will this hamper your desire to pick up a PS4 at launch, or even at all?

For fuck's sake, what is so bad about allowing backwards compatibility?

Cost. If it is a hardware implementation to play PS3 or PS2 games, then that means you are putting a PS3/PS2 inside the PS4 - expensive.

If it's software emulation, then you need enough processing power to handle that. The software emulation is complicated as well.

They're thinking long term. I'm guessing they feel they have to move over to Steam's side of doing things, so goodbye GameFly rentals. Don't sell your PS3s anytime soon. Personally I'm gonna wait to see if it's even worth it (I don't use the Vita, wand, "Share button", or any other goofy PS4 crap).

Did Microsoft announce already that games on 360 will not work with next gen console? Well, that's a way to screw Sony. And me, as a gamer, if I would buy a console, I would like to be able to play Forza 4 on the next gen. That's practicly the only game for what a regret I don't have a console.
