Anyways, PS4 got announced.

Not yet excited, it will be the games they have that will get me interested. I would love to know if the likes of Bioshock, Last of Us and GTA will be released as PS4 games as well as PS3 games

I am not interested in the ps4, the only thing that might interest me is the possibility that the ps3 will get cheaper..
For 70-80€ I might grab one to "upgrade" my ps2.

At hold right now--GTA V isn't for next-gen at the moment--I hope it is tho, since I don't wanna just stream it thru the cloud when I get a PS4--(which probably won't be for a while..I say sometime in 2014 most likely, since I want to use my PS3 to the full potential it has left before moving on).

Crossing fingers that R* decides to do next-gen, but I'm trying not to have my hopes up, but we'll see... no sense talking about this anymore, because I rather see it happen instead of chatting away about it.

Last of Us is obviously a final this-gen game before next-gen arrives, I hardly see it coming out on PS4 but I wish it would, probably only thru the cloud like I mentioned above. So I hope more news is at E3 this year so I can see more about the PS4 before I keep judging about it.

PS4 atm should be around 400-450$ from the rumors I've been seeing, but we'll see the final price announced soon I hope, probably at E3.

I'm actually not happy about the PS4 being announced. I think it's too early for next generation consoles. People talk about how developers haven't gotten the most out of the PS3 yet. If it was up to me, PS4 and its like would be released in about 2-3 years. Obviously competition prevents this from happening.

All PS3 games and earlier consoles will supposedly be able to be playable on the 4.

Honestly not that excited for the PS4. Doesnt really look like anything new or innovative. Just looks like its a bump in graphics. Might as well just go for a Sony PC if they are just gonna make something capable of better graphics.

I thought the opposite was true. I remember reading something like no backwards compatibility due to different engine or something like that (I'm not tech savvy).

I had heard you had to buy and download the Ps3 games but the ones we currently have, the hard copies, won't work?

Backward compatibility

The PlayStation 4 hardware will not include the ability to natively play past PlayStation console retail and digital games, including PlayStation 3 titles. Sony is, however, considering emulation or cloud-based streaming as a workaround.

Sony is planning to launch a cloud-based streaming service through Gaikai, a company acquired by Sony in July 2012. The service will render older PlayStation games and stream them to the PS4.


It's possible sometime in the future--that backwards compatibility for hard copies may come into question, but for now we have only this which I quoted.

I doubt you have to buy them again, but we'll see what happens when more news arises.

Something in the current PS3 generation that I have been sad to see go is games having free downloadable themes/wall papers. Still got some of my Bioshock ones and realized I haven't downloaded one for a long long time
