Here's a thread explaining what Playstation Now is OP Smiley Happy!

Simple terms, you'll be able to play PS1, PS2, and PS3 titles streamed to your PS4 ala like Netflix (for Games).

PS4 is not backwards cmpatible due to different architectures between the consoles. Disc Based game incompatible.

Digital purchases are dependant on the developer to work with the PS4 as they have to port the code to make it work on the console.

Sound Shapes, Flow, Flower, and Escape Plan are good examples - These are crossbuy, so if you bought them on the PS3/Vita, they will work on the PS4.

Big titles have already come over though like Injustice Gods Among Us, Madden 25, NBA 2K14, NBA Live 14, Assassins Creeed 4, Call of Duty Ghosts, Tomb Raider, and Battlefield 4. Some are even part of the Upgrade program (aka if you bought the PS3 copy new, you will have a voucher to upgrade for $10, if the promotion is still going that is).

Final Fantasy 14 will be upgradeable for free though from your PS3 account.

DCUO was also ported but still free to play Smiley Happy but Counter Spy and Mincraft will be coming soon to PS4 at a later time.

There is no word on that yet but I would like PSone, PS2 and PS3 games to be made available on the PS4.

 

PS2 games can be emulated on the PS4 but PS3 games can't be emulated on the PS4 so in order to make PS3 games playable on the PS4 they would need be to re-compiled and ported to the PS4.
