Hello all. I haven't seen much info on this. But If I buy the game on the PS3 and then get a PS4. Does it carry over or do I need to buy a PS4 game of it also?

Also, I would love to get a PC copy of this game but all my money is going to a new automobile. I was going to buy the PS3 ver. but I'm kinda nervous if it's playable on it or if lag will set its ugly head in. How playable is this game on a PS3 and what ways can make it more better to play it on the PS3?

Thank you

I think its functionality on ps3 is fine... I have had no more than 23 minutes when trying to log and its looks good all things considered.. That being said, I have always been a console MMO player and enjoy sitting on the couch and having a gamepad or controller in my hand w a keyboard. Simply put, IMO, its fine.

You will still need to buy the PS4 game but I read that there will be a discount for PS3 owners of the game. I don't have a source on that information, but I read it somewhere by Yoshi.

The PS3 is playable and I have some friends using it. They say it's fine but it's a little laggy for my tastes, especially during FATEs. But it's playable. If you can't get a PC version it would be worthwhile to level up and play the story, etc. then upgrade to the PS4 version later.

Well was going to buy it tonight after putting my PS3 on DMZ but I guess they are not allowing digital downloads. It's not on the PS3 store right now

Do PS3 players hook up a keyboard to type to folks?

Yes or you can buy the keyboard that connects to the control. I'm on ps3 and it runs well only time lag happens slightly during fates but it ain't am that bad on my end anyways.

The PS3 version handles remarkable well for a PS3 game. If you aren't used to the limitations of the PS3, you might be disappointed. I'm having a blast with the PS3 version right now myself. The only touchy spot for the console is how it plays during Fates. Other than that, the frame rate and graphics look good for an older console. The PS4 version will probably look better than most PC setups due to optimization. A PC game is unable to do this because of all the various GPU's and such.
