    Do you think that it might be possible for ps3 users to play with ps4?

    I already know that PS3 and XBOX 360 users could play with each other over 3rd party software like XLINK Kai... but would Sony make a built in feature for developers to allow this possibility?

    Dust 514 allows play between PS3 and PC users. It's possible, but will any of the developers do it?

    YOUR THOUGHTS!

    That would be really cool! I know a few of my friends are worried about being left behind playing ps3 alone.

    That would be great.

    However, I don't see us being able to do so. There will be those on their PlayStation 4, but it's not like they're just going to throw the PS3 to the side and forget it - if friends are still stuck on last gen.

    The common denominator between the PS3 and PS4 is the Playstation network which will be improving but will not drastically change.
    So there is no technical reason why a multiplayer game such as GTA V running on a PS3 can not interface with GTA V on a PS4.
    Questions are 1. Will Sony allow it? 2. Will game developers carefully craft their communications coding so it will work.
    It is kind of like the PC world at this point I can play a multiplayer game on my HP laptop with another player on a Dell desktop even
    though they have drastically different hardware and capability.
