You Can Already Pre-Order PS4 Games on Your PS3

Posted by Sammy Barker

Looking to the future

This may be the first generation ever where you can purchase games for an unreleased system on its predecessor. Sony kickstarted digital PlayStation 4 pre-orders in North America overnight – and you can fulfil the required transactions via your existing PlayStation 3. That’s a pretty novel feature, isn’t it?

Current options include Knack and Warframe – though the latter is a free-to-play game, so we’re not quite sure why that’s been made available so early. Regardless, with the console now less than a month away, it’s pretty exciting to see next generation releases adorning the home screen of the PlayStation Store.

Judging by a Tweet from the PlayStation account, it sounds like the platform holder will be rolling these pre-orders out on a weekly basis through until launch. Are you planning to purchase any of your PS4 games digitally? Which titles are you hoping to nab? Drop us a deposit in the comments section below.

Should i download Warframe now so it can be on my list, or will it continue to be free when the ps4 releases???

For some reason, I thought Knack was only going to be $39.99. I'm not completely sure if I'll get it for $60 even if it looks like it's going to be a pretty good platformer.

Also, pre-ordering a free game is just silly.

@nathanuc1988 Yes that is bad. I also thought that Knack would be 40 or 50 euros. It would be a must buy in this price but maybe not for 60 euros.



NathanUC said:

@belmont Yeah completely agreed. I'm guessing this will be one of the first titles we see discounted/free on PS+ within the first few months.

Don't forget in the US we still have that promotion where if you spend $50 you will be getting $10 back.

So that helps to offset Knack's price.

Knack still seems like it should be a $30 budget game. No disrespect intended to Cerny or Japan Studio, but unfortunately the game just seems pretty poor.
