I reccommend you think again before setting your PS3 on fire in celebration. The PS4 will not natively play PS3, PS2, or PS1 games. I suggest you Bing Gaikai to find out more.

There will be no backwards compatibility for the PlayStation 4, meaning gamers won't be able to pop in their old PlayStation 3 (PS2 and PS1 as well) titles into the console, Sony detailed. Rather, gamers will be required to download the games over the cloud.

Google it and find out instead of asking lol Smiley Tongue you people make me sick hahahaha Just Kidding. But sadly, no BC for PS goes on the PS4 disc wise. They said it will be with streaming the games from the cloud company they purchased. Wait 3 more weeks for Sony's E3 to see all the details.

I will certainly not be throwing away my PS3, but it's a shame to hear that there is no backwards compatibility.

You have to understand the difference in the PS3's cell processor and the new AMD processor in the PS4. Completely different designs and I dont think any system will be able to emulate the cell processor any time soon. If you add the cell processor to the PS4 then it would add more to the cost of the system.

On the other hand, Xbots are finding out the same news with the XBO.  That system is making a similar switch from PowerPC to AMD.

 

The Eighth Generation of Console gaming seems to favor no backward-thinking man.
