The lights are on
At the Sony PlayStation 4 press conference, Gaikai's Dave
Perry seemed to confirm the rumors that the system would not be backwards
compatible with PS3 games, but Sony has big plans to allow users access to the
PlayStation back catalog.
While Perry said PS3 games are "not natively
supported," that doesn't mean the extensive history of PlayStation games
won't be available to users.
He did not mention specifics, but Perry claims the system's cloud service will allow users access to a wide array of past
PlayStation titles at a later date. We'll have to wait on details to see which titles make the cut.

Hopefully it's software that'll recognize that I already bought the game and will let me automatically play those games I've already purchased.
That's not a huge concern for me. I rarely play with my old games anyway.
This is disappointing, but hopefully their solution to playing older games is practical and cheap.
Well, I hardly played ps3 so this news doesn't matter to me. So I'm more interested to see whats coming then what's passed. Still, sucks to have a large library that can't be played on it meaning you got to keep the ps3 around.
If they didn't charge me for these games again, I'm OK with it. I will not be buying my PS3 games over again. I didn't think it was gonna be BC but it's still a bummer.
well, good news to digital users, bad news to physical users. *sigh*
they better *** find a way to make them free to people who already own them.
Hopefully its not like xbox 360s BC where they promised a lot of titles but never got any good ones besides halo 2 of course.
A little disappointing, but I had. I intention of selling my PS3.
i assumed it wouldnt be Back Comp, but im still concerned about the rumor that the games will be tied to your account, and we wont be able to play used PS4 games. I hope they cover that
