    I asked this same question of Hellfire concerning their new virtual world project for PS4. Any chance you can make it backwards compatible with PS3? Even if it means some degraded visuals and minor functionality? Just so PS3 people can get a taste and decide whether to make the PS4 leap? Perhaps have it run in an emulator for PS3 as opposed to two versions...and maybe only for a limited time.

    Thanks

    That would be good, but I think they're just going to leave it on the PS4 =\

    Doubtfull, it would cost them too much cash to develop it for both consoles. As stated on their front page, it's PS4 not PS3. I am sure they would of stated PS3 if it was comin out for that.

    They are using a new Game Develop Engine which dosen't exist on PS3, so thats probaly anther reason why we don't want it on PS3.. we want better grraphcs

    Just realized I posted this in the wrong forum. This one is for questions about the forum itself.

    Whoops....my bad. When Neotopia goes live, I will spend a day in the virtual prison.

    I understand the difficulty of cross-platform compatibility, but PS3 still outnumbers PS4 by a huge margin. Just thinking from a business point of view...that's a pretty big customer base that could be tapped IF it can be done. Anyway....if only PS4, it is still exciting.

    Hi all, good question, initially neotopia is going to be on PS4 only but once it's up and running we can look at expanding it to new platforms, if it's technically possible and it's what you guys want, then why not? Definitely one for down the road though ;)

    Well we do want it for PS3 if it's possible, if it was possible to merge PS3/PS4 users togheter. That way we can mod it on PS3 :D lol.

    Hello All, I'm new here and signed up simply because this sounds exciting since I can't believe that PS HOME is going down! anyway, I am a PS4 owner and I do have lots of friends that I am pretty sure are not ready to jump to PS4 and some...haven't moved simply because there is no PS HOME on the PS4! so yes, I agree and would love to see it on PS3 for those who haven't made the switch yet. Hopefully this team will be able to to do it and I can't wait to see Neotopia in action!

    Nah, please keep it off of PS3, think about how long this project may take, by that time PS4 is going to be the standard. Wasting resources on a platform that will have little time by then.
    please do not waste resources, I love my PS3 and all but all that effort can be put into the PS4 instead of having to manage both PS3 & PS4's community and wouldn't merging it so that both PS3 & PS4 owners use the same servers be a bad idea, like we PS4 owners can basically be held back?
    Make it easier on yourselves and focus on the current gen consoles.

    There will be nothing exclusive about this virtual world if it's on the PS3. We are aiming towards the future here people. The next generation of virtual gaming is PS4.

    ABSOLUTELY NOT! I have no interest or desire to share cross compatible server space with the PS3....should Neotopia ever enter a consideration phase for porting it to another platform. You want it on PS3, fine...then make it a seperate entity with it's own servers...AWAY from PS4 servers! I do not want potential modders, booters, freezers, IP sniffers or hackers anywhere near Neotopia or PS4 servers. And if PS3 users share the same playground as PS4 users, in a cross compatible sense....that's EXACTLY what will happen. We can just kill THAT right now! (We are NOT repeating the same BS we did with Home, folks! And if it ever looks like thats where Neotopia is going with the "modder/freezer" crowd - IM OUT)

    That pesky Neotopia! It's going to be unlikely that we'll launch on the PS3. Unreal Engine 4 doesn't support it. I realise this might be a huge disappointment to some, but it means the world will look better and we won't be restricted by last-gen hardware and limits.

    Yeah. Focusing on the new platform is good but I feel for those still on PS3 with no plans to purchase a PS4 anytime soon. If I recall correctly, U4 can be modified to run on last gen. Not sure how big of a task that would be or if Madmunki is even up for the challenge but maybe if this thing takes off and does well it could be an option in the future. Although I highly doubt the PS3 will be supported by anyone much longer.

    If you want an unreal world and unreal performance, the PS3 is not an option. Neotopia is not going to be Playstation Home, it is going to be much better. The PS3 would only hold it back.
