Your PS3 Console Now Lets You Pre-order PS4 Games
You've pre-ordered the console, so now pre-order the games.
The PS4 might be the first PlayStation console that doesn't feature backwards compatibility from launch, but that doesn't mean you can't use your PS3 to prep for the arrival of your PS4, does it?
The Sony PlayStation Twitter account this week announced that PS3 users can now pre-order PS4 games from their PS3 console. The company is kicking things off with Knack and Warframe, and users will be able to pre-order via PS Store (PS3) and the SEN online store. Knack is priced at $60, but Warframe is actually free, so the pre-order is a bit pointless.
Both Warframe and Knack appear on Sony's list of launch titles that was released in late August. The PS4 is set for launch next month. It packs an eight-core 64-bit x86 Jaguar CPU from AMD; a GPU with a unified array of 18 compute units, collectively capable of generating 1.84 Teraflops of processing power; 8 GB of RAM; 802.11n WiFi; Bluetooth 2.1; USB 3.0; and an upgradeable 500 GB hard drive. It'll be priced at $399 when it goes on sale in November.
