In no way will we forget about PS3, says Sony

Sony will in no way forget about the PlayStation 3, despite the fact its successor the PS4 will launch later this year, Sony Computer Entertainment UK MD Fergal Gara has told VideoGamer.com.

"I suppose it's my biggest challenge this year but a great problem to have, which is in no way should we or will we say forget about PS3 because PS4 is coming," said Gara.

That's great to hear and all but what about this used games debacle? and if it is even at all possible, just exactly how will we be able to play our PS3 games on the PS4?

You don't play your PS3 games on PS4. Simples. Unless that gaikai (spelling?) works out as planned but even then you'd have to repurchase them and stream them.

Don't know why you're getting disagrees. That's exactly how it will work from what Sony has said.

Apparently, not even PSN games will be compatible, so those of us with hundreds of dollars tied up to digital content will be severely disincentivized from buying into PS4.

Not really it is called a new gen. Keep your PS3 and stop being entitled to everything. Did you VHSs work with your DVDs? No. This is a completely different architecture and they had to do it. The Cell was a backwards developmental tool. They have done everything right. No problem keeping my PS3 around. Tons of PSN games and yeah it sucks a little but I already rebought a few on Steam.

We won't. Not a big deal imo the SNES didnt play Nes games and is one of the best consoles of all time. I still have a PS2 kicking around and never play it. I'll be too busy playing PS4 games come this winter.

what people fell to realize kazu said ps3 is the ALL in one console why is the ps4 not holding up that promise?? meaning we should still be able to play ps1,ps2,ps3 games on ps4 without loading from GAIKEI CLOUD service. yeah, i know it would cost to much to play all 4 console games but then it would be worth 650.00
instead if you want to play ps1 games you need ps1,ps2,ps3 consoles to play those games thats crazy.

@mttley65 cause they said the ps3 was not the ps4 and even though they said that with the ps3 how many of you actually still own the orginal ps3 that is the all in one i bet not many. I DONT KNOW HOW MANY TIMES I GOT TO KEEP SAYING THIS BUT IF ITS THAT BIG OF A DEAL KEEP YOUR PS3.solves the problem.

Say and do are 2 different things, I ignored the comment and go back to play games. I will not forget the PS3 lol... Palm raced, going back to fire emblem awakening.

ThatXboxGuy1188d ago

Perhaps you guys should wait until we actually know what works and how before you cement our assumptions as facts...

zerocrossing1187d ago

It died on me...

Well I imagine the PS3 will get a price cut shortly after the PS4 is released, so if they don't decide to incorporate BC it shouldn't be a problem.

We love you sony, for everything ! You're the best publisher in the industry !

Elwenil1188d ago

I don't think anyone expect Sony to abandon the PS3 anytime soon. They want to get the most out of each console and know that not everyone will rush to buy the new one. After seeing the support they gave to the PS1 and PS2, it's only natural that they support the PS3 for a similar amount of time as it seems profitable to them.

You have to hand it to Sony. Kudos
