Maybe a stretch, but will a ps4 console user playing the PS3 version of GTA5 (or any other PS3 title) be able to play a person online using a ps3 console of the same game?

That depends entirely on the developer of said game.

Confirmation on data installs

You play the game while it installs the data cache. Which is temporary, but you need that extra space to play the game in the future. The good part about that is games will run faster with faster load times and you can reuse that space for any other game you are playing at the time.

So, will the PS4 do all of the other media stuff that PS3 does? For example, playing Blu-ray movies and streaming movies over local Wi-Fi.

I have nothing funny to say here.

Gaikai [FE1]
Gaikai has been integrated into the playstation hardware and software to help reduce the time you are waiting to play games. With the new store system you will be able to download part of the game and Gaikai will slowly stream the rest of the game to you eventually having the full game downloaded to your hard drive. Basically Gaikai reduces the wall between you and digital games.

Gaikai is also a game streaming service that Sony is hoping to use to stream PS3 games to the PS4. Because the Gaikai servers will be calculating everything, this is an online only service much like Netflix.

Cloud Service available in 2014. Allows PS3 BC.


Can I get a source/cross-check on this? My entire decision on whether or not to ever get a PS4 literally hinges on this, since I'm not buying it unless I'm positive I will have offline access to PS4 versions of games I already own, at a reasonable price.

Did you mean PS3 games? No. No matter what you will not be able to play PS3 games offline on the PS4. It's not in the system architecture. You can get a Fat PS3 for <$150 and have PS2 backwards compatibility.

I'm doing some research for you, but your post could be taken several different ways.

I already have a PS3, but I don't have the money or the means to own both a PS4 and a PS3.
The excerpt I just quoted from your post, says the PS4 will be able to play PS3, PS2, and PS1 games via Gaikai... so which is it? and can I get a source?
