I would hope not. I can see it happening though.

Probably not possible. The Cell is not used anymore and AMD is doing both the processor and the graphics chip.


PS3 used the cell processor and NVidia chips.

So...what'll become of my backlog and my digital games? o_O What do you think Sony will do? Transfer some things (such as trophies) over to PS4?

I hope not, but it's likely they will. Unfortunate, really.

I don't know about your digital games. They were made for PS3. I'm sure trophies and friends will carry over.
Versus XIII is coming in 2014, GTA5 will be awesome, and PS4/Xbox 720 is coming in Dec. Lightning Return will be super awesome and I don't care what you think!

I doubt there will be any possibility of backward compatibility without a Cell processor. While it is possible to make the PS4/Orbis backward compatible it would cost them a fortune, and cost us a fortune, and at this point it's just not worth it.

I just hope PSN purchases are BC, I could not care less about discs
Trying is the first step towards failure.
