Shuhei Yoshida, President of SCE World Wide Studios, dropped a bombshell during a roundtable discussion when a reporter asked about the possibilities of playing your PlayStation Network titles on the PlayStation 4. The answer was expected, but it will still be a controversial decision by Sony. “There is no native compatibility for PS3 games on PS4,” Yoshida stated. That’s not to say that there will never be a way to play your older games on the system. Yoshida talked about moving your existing saves over to the PS4 when, or if, they found a way to bring existing games to the PS4 via Sony’s streaming technology or software emulation. “When we provide the games in some form to be playable on PS4, absolutely we will try to do that, because we know that’s what people want, and it makes sense,” he explained.
PlayStation 4 Won’t Play Any PS3 or PSN Games
