All digital content? What does that entail? I somehow don't believe it means digital games, I mean they have already said no backwards compatability.

PS3 and PS4 architectures are too different to offer any backward compatibility out of the box.

And who is Game Basildon anyway?

Basilidon is a town in Essex I believe (London area), and GAME is the retail chain.

Must be nice having a system that can carry over content it can't even play.

Actually, no, it's not nice. It's dumb.

I'm skeptical and will wait for a better source but awesome if true. I think it might just be any games that have a PS4 version that were on the PS3's PSN could be carried over or maybe upgraded like Flower or hopefully titles like FIFA 14. I'd be surprised if GTA 5 etc worked.

Hmm, I hope not. Gaikai isn't even going to be seen in Europe probably until 2015.

If Sony had this feature, don't you think THEY would be shouting it from the mountain tops?

They might mean themes, songs, movies and other non-game related content.

Yeah... that would make sense. Hell, Microsoft said movies and music you purchased would carry over. But not games. If games were going to work, make no mistake: we would hear about it straight from the horse's mouth in capital letters.

Digital content but not games?

X1 has the same, but both are useless without the digital games.

Digital content is very vague. Theres digital content that gets carried over from 360 to XOne as well

#1 Dude is not a Sony employee nor does he have any real connection to Sony.

#2 "Digital content" has been used by Sony in the past and it's always in reference to movie, music, and tv shows.

I knew this would be a thing.

So PS4 is backwards compatible only Digitally.

He's Shuhei Yoshida, President of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios; 1st Party game Development manager. I think that's a pretty big connection to Sony. ;)

What are you talking about? OP's post isn't from Shuhei. Find anything in Shuhei's timeline that suggest what the OP and tweeter are saying.

I really hope that is not what it means. But that is what I am thinking.

I have got a royal shit ton of digital stuff on my PS3. Would love to see this somehow happen.

Possible but why a gaming company bother tweeting about that sort of stuff unless it's referring to game content? Unless someone's got the complete wrong end of the stick at Game.

It may not mean PS3 digital games or indie games for it, but what about PS1 or PS2 games you can get from PSN?

This has been completely debunked by Sony: https://twitter.com/PlayStationEU/st...39033872846848
