I bought a ps4...Follow

#1 Jan 03 2015 at 9:27 PM Rating: Good
...to play Destiny with my younger brother...who has yet to play with me >.>

Anyways, with Destiny came a free 30day of PSN+, free PSN > Not free. I had to create a new PSN account, no big deal. Now my question is, PSN+ gets "free" games. I've not really got to play Injustice, so I am DLing it.

I have a question tho, can I DL the ps3 games and play them on the ps4? Neither games (for this month) are something I want to play, but I'm just wondering for down the road.
I plan to keep my ps3 because I am going to be buying Kingdom Hearts 1.5 & 2.5, and hopefully can re-play and beat all the games before KH3 comes out.

Also, are there no RPGs on the ps4 yet? Destiny looked fun (watched my bro play, he has had it for about a week, me 2 days), but really isn't my type of game (FPS with a controller...blah). Not many adventure/rpgs out?

You can't play PS3 games on the PS4. You can't even access PS3 games on PSN from the PS4 (unless I missed it somewhere). As far as RPGs, none other than XIV that I'm aware of.

Some games have crossbuy, so if you buy the PS3 version of it you would get the PS4 version if it was available for free. PS1 game are playable on the PS4, so you should check there for RPGs. The Resident Evil 1 remake is coming out for PS4, and Lords of the Fallen is like Dark Souls if that's your thing.

I actually just finished Lord's of the Fallen. If Dark Souls is too masochistic for you stay away. It starts off pretty brutal. If you look up the locations of a couple of key weapons it smooths out quite a bit and was actually pretty fun for me. The magic powers also go a long way towards making it easier once you unlock them. But I love Dark Souls so YMMV.

The biggest problem I had with LoTF is the map design. Sometimes just trying to figure out where to go next is pure torture. Also they make you go back to the same maps with new mobs. Probably a budget and freshman effort issue (I guess they are some of the designers from The Witcher 2). I have 32 hours in the game so far and plan to play more. That's about 1.5 games worth as I abandoned my first warrior when I found out how great the cleric heals are.

I'll probably check out a rogue and then maybe check out NG+ after on my cleric.

I'm really waiting for FF Type-0, FFXV, and KH3 for the PS4.

I got a couple games on the PS4 that I've played a bit, but nothing all that impressive yet. So far my main use of my PS4 has been playing Netflix while I play the games I really wanted on my PSVita. Actually playing that a lot now. Tales of Hearts R mostly. I'm still kind of hopeful that they'll bring Tales of Innocence R, but, only kind of...

I played the hell out of GTAV on PS4. Considering how much I hated IV, I'm surprised I got into so much. Right now I'm playing Infamous: Second Sons. It's pretty decent, though a bit repetitive. As to RPGs, there isn't much available yet.

I think Square Enix is selling it for the same price directly from their store (or, the place that handles their store). I think it went for sale back at the beginning of December.
