WSJ: PS4 will have BC by streaming PS3 games via Gaikai

#21shinra35800Posted 2/15/2013 6:23:07 PM
They knew they had to find an alternate way to give you back your ps3 games when you bought a ps4 cosidering it is impossible to store all your ps3 games on even a 1TB hdd. Sony, you shoulda had the discs readable on the ps4....
Whoa wait: http://i3.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/000/263/610/772.png

If they're not going to make you able to play your ps3 games inside your ps4 with your discs, that certainly may mean that they are trying to go all digital!

what's the point if you'll still need your PS3 hooked up?

While BC is great- once it was confirmed nVidia wasn't doing GPU for PS3, everyone should've seen this coming. Hell, everyone should've seen this coming when sony removed BC from the PS3.

Seriously, Most of you won't even give a damn after year 1 of the PS4 is over, so let's not blow this up to be bigger than it really is.


i still play ps1 and ps2 games also i wonder what sony would do if we didn't buy a ps4 until they included actual BC and not this gaikai crap

Start shopping boys.

There is literally no point in buying a PS4 after this, what a colossal mess. Always online, image compression and latency, bandwidth caps in America, Jesus Christ what is wrong with this company.


Pretty much what this guy said. Especially the latency part. I thought Sony learned from their mistakes? I just want them to get it right...and if this is true it is not looking good.

What the hell does this mean? Stream PS3 games? So I can't play my PS3 games? I can only watch video's of them? Are they serious.


It means you stream them to play them..


That makes absolutely no sense to me. Streaming PS3 games? Wtf?


You don't have a clue what streaming is do you.

So let me get this straight, I'll be able to replay my entire PS3 collection in a lower resolution with input lag, AND have to constantly be connected to the internet?

WHERE DO I SIGN UP!

They expect us to "forget about the ps3" when the ps4 comes out. How are we gonna forget about all those $60 games ppl bought!? Not to mention, they aren't OLD at all and will continue to look great probably forever.
