    Default Sony admits Purchased PSN games can't be transferred to PS4

    PS3 owners thinking about upgrading to a PS4 may have to scrap their library of digital titles and start over, according to one PlayStation executive.
    Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida was quoted by Engadget as claiming that PSN games won't transfer from PS3 to the new console and nor will game saves.

    This is likely due to the radically different hardware architecture of both machines (the PS3 being based on Cell technology).

    But Yoshida said Sony will try to make digital purchases playable "in some form".

    Sony today allows PSN accounts to work across all its games systems - from PS3 to Vita - and has allowed for previously purchased games to be redownloaded on new hardware. Whether this is technically feasible is the key question.

    The PlayStation firm has already suggested that some older games could be streamed to PS4 using the Gaikai service.

    Sony revealed the PlayStation 4 at a New York press conference on Wednesday.

    The PS4 release date is set for "holiday 2013", likely across Japan, Europe and the US.

    I was hoping they would keep the cell, improve it and just add a beast GPU. But, nope. Ah well, no BC again

    Keep the cell for what?

    It did the PS3 no good. Well it end up doing good by assisting the not up to par gpu Nvidia put in the ps3.


    If they wanted BC they could write programs to emulate. Not sure if anything is powerful enough to emulate a Ps3 though.

    For the ps2 emulation, they could add the chip that was present in the first PS3s.
