The lights are on
At the Sony PlayStation 4 press conference, Gaikai's Dave
Perry seemed to confirm the rumors that the system would not be backwards
compatible with PS3 games, but Sony has big plans to allow users access to the
PlayStation back catalog.
While Perry said PS3 games are "not natively
supported," that doesn't mean the extensive history of PlayStation games
won't be available to users.
He did not mention specifics, but Perry claims the system's cloud service will allow users access to a wide array of past
PlayStation titles at a later date. We'll have to wait on details to see which titles make the cut.
