All PSN Titles on PS3 Will Transfer to PS4

The European video game store named “Game” had an interview with PlayStation and Shuhei Yoshida early this morning and uncovered some interesting news.  According to a series of tweets by Game and Yoshida, ALL of your current PSN titles on PS3 will transfer over to your PS4.  This means that if you bought titles such as The Last of UsGrand Theft Auto V, or Ni No Kuni digitally rather than the physical copy, you will be able to play them on your PS4.

This however will not be available right away when you get your PS4 and is probably referring to the Gaikai service that is rolling out in 2014 as stated in a tweet later on in reply to a question.  All of this also means is that you will be able to play all of your favorite PS3 digital titles on your Vita through remote play.

@GazVon yup, TLOU played on your Vita, streamed from your PS4 that you bought digitally for your PS3!

My Opinion:
This is awesome news.  There are many people freaking out about the PlayStation 4 not being backwards compatible, and this is one of the ways that their complaints can be resolved.  It does not completely solve the issue since it only works on digital games, but is still something. This is another one of the functions we will have to wait until 2014 in order to use but in reality, that is not long to wait.  If you are so worried about playing your PS3 games then just don’t sell your PS3.  I have several titles I bought through PSN that I wouldn’t mind playing on my PS4 when I get it, and now that this will be available I will most likely start buying future PS3 titles through PSN rather than the physical version.
