At least in physical form. I really don't want to see people complaining on this board about it not being BC.
It's highly unlikely it will, so for yours and everyone's sake stop now.

I mean after all does it really matter? Blu ray is still relevant, and the PS3 is a great media machine with DVD music, and video services. There isn't much reason to trade it in.

I'm willing to bet money everything downloadable on PSN will be available to play on PS4, minus games that developers futz up their licenses for.
You are hallucinating. Seek help immediately.

I fail to see any reason to comply with that.

It better be backwards compatible or I'm going to buy the competitors product instead.
Know that if you allow someone to take advantage of you, they might make it a habit.

Maybe you will change your mind when your PS3 goes YLOD?

I'd prefer it to be BC at LEAST with the PS3 catalog.

Most likely senarios:

1 - Most older-than-ps3 PSN purchases will still work
2 - ps2 may work (certainly could technically but they may want to encourage PSN purchases of re-released ps2 games, plus HD releases)
3 - more hd releases, including of ps3 titles (down the line... such as 1080p versions of 720 games)
4 - some ps3 games, especially less intensive ones, quickly ported for ps4, like Castle Crashers, PS MInis, etc.
5 - Gaikai is used for streaming new and old games, may require subscription or be part of PS+

just guesses - but I hope they include as much B./C as possible -- doing it in software (thru the store) just brings them more money, makes their library larger and requires the user to have less devices.
