The Sony PlayStation 4 has enjoyed a very promising start in the battle of the new-gen consoles, comfortably outselling rival Microsoft's Xbox One during the early stages of its existence. Things got even better last month for PS4 users when Sony decided to announce its PlayStation Now gaming platform, allowing those on the PS3/PS4/Vita to enjoy classic titles from the PS3/PS2/PS1 thanks to a robust, cloud-based infrastructure. The idea that classic titles could be relived on modern day machine instantly struck a chord with the gaming faithful, and now, a video of a beta PlayStation Now streaming Killzone 3 has been leaked.
Sony may have just announced that it sold 4.2 million PS4s before the end of 2013, but that doesn't mean that there hasn't been the odd issue that gamers have with the new machine coming out of Japan. While it's clear that they have been buying new PS4s in their droves, gamers have also been vocal about the lack of support for PS3 games on the new console, with backward compatibility falling by the wayside.
