  • All the Gaikai stuff is confusing and even though it may add to the price tag they really should op for native reverse compatibility with PS3 otherwise all the games PS3 users bought will be useless unless they’re gonna make something that lets u enter the PS3 games u own and like store them on ur PS4 or something. And 8 GB us a lotta memory right? One of you smarter people should write up an article explaining what the hell all that techy stuff means ~Seiko/Torre

    • Well, there is 1024 megabytes in a gigabyte, and the PS3 had 521 mb of storage. So, with 8 gb, 8 x 1024 = 8192 mb. Which means the PS4 had 15.7 times the amount of storage the PS3 did (If I did my math correctly)
