supposed to be NO, not NP lol

Can't say it can't be done, you can give away codes for the game via the PS NOW service, there was a few other games i seen that came with older version with a code to redeem for a digital copy via PS NOW.

Although i literally had just rented and beat the game less then a week ago, still be nice to have it. If its not available atm on PS NOW, then give a code and a date it will be available by so people can redeem it later, its a no brainer.

Er, because PS4 doesn't have backwards compatibility?

Was that a trick question?

Considering that it came out 7 years ago, then almost everyone should have a computer that can run it just fine.

It takes work to port games from other consoles to the newest console. Therefore for game companies to do something like this, there has to be profit to be made. There will always be people asking why games from PS1, PS2, and other old consoles haven't been ported to the PS4. Why stop there. Why can't ET from Atari be on the PS4?

Reasons? First, too much hastle and to much money involved. The PS4 isnt just a box with some more memory and a more powerfull CPU, its core operating system has changed, just like when Win7 was succeeded by say Win8. They are still based on the same core elements, but changes are there that might make it dificult to port the old engine for the PS3 version of the game, over to the PS4.

It was my understanding that Fallout 3 was not being ported to the Xbox One.

Microsoft provides a backward compatibility that lets Xbox games run on the Xbox One, and they give you the Xbox version.

No effort required from Bethesda at all, except to cash the check.

Go ask Sony where your backward compatibility option is.

I know where it is!.. It's in psnow.. Where you have to pay to rent and stream old games. Why make backwards compatibility when idiots will pay to play games they already own? I'm just as guilty for re-purchasing games I already own. I feel like an idiot as i do it but I keep doing it.
