PS3 games mysteriously appear on PS4 PlayStation Store - prepping for PlayStation Now?

Post by BigBox on Sat May 17, 2014 5:03 pm

If this is some kind of possible Backward Compatibility patch coming.  I'm taking my PS3 and upgrading to a PlayStation 4.

You can't patch in PS3 backwards compatability. There's way too much that would need to be done to fit in a single patch. It could just be popping up for PSNow's service, so that people can rent/buy the games. Who knows, really.

Either way, I'm likely gonna upgrade my PS3 when PlayStation Now comes out.  Although, I shouldn't have to re-buy GTA V since I bought it on PSN already.

You shouldn't but Sony nor Microsoft care about upgrading digital purchases this gen, so sadly you probably will have to rebuy it

Mine is already digital, and it's the same version.  So, if it doesn't let me download what I already own.  A quick call to customer service should fix that.

I doubt that'll solve anything; they've said the store transactions won't carry over, no exceptions. Unless they announce a policy claiming the opposite it'll end up the same way.
