Do you guys think the PS4 will be backwards compatible with all PS3 games?

If it plays ps2 games and not ps3 games that's an excellent business decision because it means you have to still own or buy new ps3s. As an ethical decision it turns you into Hitler IRL.

I think Gaikai will be used for streaming demos of new games and allow you to play PS3 games you missed as well. PS2 and PS1 titles should still be compatible from the store -- hopefully your purchases carry over.

Eh, I'll just use my PS3 for PS3 games.

^this.. to be honest if it does have it then yeah i'll probably use it for PS3 games for the first few months but after that I doubt I'll use BC very often.

I don't think PS3 BC is happening but I also don't think it's as big of a deal as removing PS2 BC on the PS3. The reason is the PS3 is already a HD console and its games look fine on a HDTV. The PS2, on the other hand, looked like ass when played on a HDTV because it's a SD console.

I'd have no complaints about having a PS3 and a PS4 hooked up to my TV. Sony might even do one better have have the systems use the same cords if you're worried about clutter.

In a perfect world Sony would either release a PS3 add-on or a more expensive PS4 (say $100 over the "base model") that has the PS3 hardware built-in but I think Sony wants to sell a $200 PS3 next to a $400 PS4...

Not unless they include ps3 hardware inside to handle backwards compatibility (It probably wouldn't be just Cell, the XDR ram the ps3 uses is rather weird and rumors having them going with an AMD chip around so it's unlikely to be able run the same code directly). Which they might, particularly as a second high-end model, but by and large I'd expect them to just keep producing ps3s for most of the ps3's lifetime.

I'm surprised there's no speculation on the PS9 with Holodeck yet.

Nope. It's hard enough for a PC to emulate Wii games.

No, no it isn't.

Originally I had been hoping PS4 would support PS3 games, but the more I think about it, I would rather they didn't. Because I won't be switching to PS4 until it has good games of it's own, until then I'll keep my PS3.
