    Fortunately most of them are psn games and not very long. But I do have several full PS3 games on there and some HD collections of old games.

    Suppose it doesn't really matter considering I will not be getting rid of my PS3 just cause I get a PS4. My kids will just have thier own PS3's is all.

    Storm in a teacup, digital makes no difference as you need a ps3 either way. I'm sure they will sort something out if you ever do get ps3 games on ps4. I am not worried about it. I am sure by the time this is an issue I won't care less anyway, old games become redundant.
    My FAV plats:Bioshock, Fallout, Crysis, Dead Space, Dead Island, RE, Prince of Persia and all the different versions of those games.

    What I don't seem to understand is if the PS4 isn't backwards compatible, why would it still be able to play downloaded PS3 games? The hardware is different, not the disc drive. Wouldn't they still need an emulator anyways to play anything PS3?

    EDIT: And just thinking about it, how long after the PS4 will Sony stop supporting the PS3 Download servers? What happens if you need to download something you bought, you wouldn't be able to. I have always feared that, and I have never bought and digital downloads.

    The PS4's backward compatibility is via Gaikai, so essentially a remote system is running the game, you stream your button presses, and the server streams back the results...cloud computing. This avoids the PS4 having to actually run a PS1/PS2/PS3 game. The same idea is how they'll also achieve the Vita 'running' PS4 games - your PS4 will run the game, and stream the video feedback to your Vita.

    What people would like is for their PSN purchases to be acknowledged with the new system, so they could stream them via Gaikai, instead of installing them locally. Yet from what they're saying, that's not going to happen.

    This is a non-issue for me. Like others, I hardly play PSN games, get games on disc or am done with them after a playthrough

    Makes sense. Though I stand 100% against streaming a playable games like that. It annoys me that the reason the PS4 won't be backwards compatible is JUST so they can make money off selling PS3 games again and using this streaming service. I know they could have found a way to make the new system play PS3 games. I am completely scared to see what happens when we find out what will happen with used games. The PS Vita already blocks trophies from being earned, who knows how far they will take it with games for this.

    Now this is some bull shit. I know they want you to buy the "latest and greatest" to play your games, but the digital copies should transfer over without any issues. This is stupid...I completely agree with DJ on this that if they are going to keep pushing this digital garbage, then they need to figure this shit out or they will fall hard.

    Not much of a shock , would like to be pissed but don't really have much downloaded , plus like El Jefe said I don't really care too much for older games , if you want to show a response to it though you should not download anything this time round
    Would like to thank Google and snipping tool for my amazing sig + avatar

    Everyone in this thread makes it sound like once PS4 releases they are gonna use their PS3 as a paperweight. Just because you can't put your shit on the PS4 doesnt mean it can't stay on your PS3. Its not like your being forced to get rid of the PS3.

    just play the PS4 when you want to play a PS4 game and plug in your PS3 when you want to play your downloaded shit.

    That's great, until you PS3 stops working, which they're kind of prone to do. I'm not sure how you can take better care of a system than I do, and my first one didn't even make it two years.

    Maybe Broken's PS3 is a slim. I had my slim for 3 years and it's still going strong.
