    Downloading Ps3 games?

    I am sorry if this is a repost... but if you have a bunch of games you have downloaded through PsPlus membership will those be able to be re-downloaded on Ps4?... I know you can't play ps3 discs but it seems like I read somewhere that you can play downloaded games on ps4..... Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Let's give that statement some context -

    The wildly different architectures of the PS3 and 4 will make a wholesale import difficult, Yoshida explained to Engadget, but the company will attempt to transfer games that don’t require excessive processing overheads for emulation.
    It's not that we can't transfer our purchases, they're still attached to your PSN account. The problem is PS3 PSN content won't work on a PS4.

    So keep a PS3 around if you want to play PS3 content. Just as you'll need a Vita to play Vita content.

    Yeah but do we honestly believe they wont be re-releasing a bunch of these games for ps4 psn? just like there are ps1 classics and ps2 classics... I would hope they would transfer when they become available.
