To start off, I want to establish myself that the PS1 was my first home console & I loved it immensely. I upgraded to the PS2 in the next generation, and that became my only console for that generation.
When the Xbox 360/PS3 generation came around, I was enticed by the graphical prowess of Gears of War, the fact most of my highschool schoolmates had an Xbox 360, and it was cheaper than the $600 PS3, were all factors that made the 360 my primary console this generation.
HOWEVER, upcoming news/rumors for Microsoft's next effort doesnt seem promising.
I watched the PS4 event live online, and I know that the PS4 won't natively support PS3 discs. However, they didn't mention if it would play digital versions of PS3 titles.
The Last of Us looks really intriguing, and I have YET to use my PSN (SEN) profile online yet, so I was wondering if you guys/gals think this would be something available at launch?
It would make sense in my mind, as launch lineups arent very big, and this would give newcomers like myself more titles to play with (pun intended).

The closest thing we have to any real shred of evidence is the Gaikai service, which will allow us to stream games right to our PS4s.
However, if you want to play PS3 games without worry with the PS4 out, you could always just keep/purchase a PS3, since it's still relevant technology and still being supported. I highly doubt that PS3 support will simply just drop once the PS4 is released.
It wont based off of watch dogs and battlefield 4, since they are releasing on current and next-gen.
