Can I play PS3 games on PS4? As my PS3 is defected, I want to buy a new PS and I have lots of new games for PS3. So I want to know if i can, so as to buy it.

Unfortunately, the PS4 is not backwards compatable.  You cannot play your PS3 disc games on a PS4.

No.  The PS4 is not compatible with PS3 (or PS2, or PS1) games.  Digital or disc.

No you can not.  There are a few Download titles for the PS3 that have been updated so you can also download and play on the PS4 but you can not play your PS3 disc games in it at all.

That sucks.. However, PSNow comes out in a few months, so if your internet is fast enough, you might have some of your old titles that are available on there.
