Well he said put PS3 on top of PS4, not the other way around.

 

Because perhaps the PS4 will be flat.

Yes, perhaps, but we don't have any idea what it will be like.  The "trend" is that the system is getting rounder, so that would not work if it continues.

It's confirmed that the PS4 will not be backwards compatible but neither will the new xbox

That's the best continuation of an idea ever. I did that with my PS2 (fat) and my PS3 (also fat [my consoles need to lose some weight]) and boom! Perfect Backwards compatibility

The PS4, when placed in a horizontal position, should have a sufficently large flat surface on the top of the unit. This allows easy stacking of the PS3 on top of the PS4 in order to provide excellent and 100% compatible backwards compatibility to all current PS3 owners.

kudos for creativity!  Smiley Tongue

 

Personally that option wouldn't work for me, not enough room in my entertainment center for a 2nd system no matter how I stack them Smiley Wink.

the PS4 won't be flat on top - there will be a PS Vita dock there - my theory anyway

I think that would be a really bad decision.  I think it would look weird with or especially without a Vita in it.  It would also be an additional cost for something a lot of people wouldn't use.
