No, the PS4 does not natively support PS3 games. I wish the PS4 was backwards compatible too, but sadly it's not. Sony wants to make PS1, PS2 and PS3 games streamable though.

I'm glad that Sony has said that the PS4 will not have backwards compatibility.  That sort of stuff just makes the system cost more and then most people can't afford it.  The good thing is that I have been hearing that you will be able to sign into your old PSN account on your brand new PS4 and will be able to continue getting trophies.  I have 23 platinum trophies so I would not want to lose them. Smiley Wink

 I would rather have the BC than the trophies, but there it is. They will set side by side when the PS4 actually has at least 5 games that are must have for me. That could take a long time.

Here's the thing guys; you CAN have a PS3 AND a PS4 side by side. One doesn't preclude the other. Now I know what you're thinking; "But I have to sell my PS3 so I can buy a PS4!". Well says who exactly? GameStop? Those guys have you conditioned to think that's the only way, and you're taken in by the promise of a quick turn around. Really, when it comes down to it, trading in your systems and games to GameStop is a losing (note the spelling) proposition. You're better off keeping it, or if you do sell it to put it on Ebay or Craigslist and actual CASH for it.


Unless you don't have room in your entertainment center to have both hooked up at the same time, like myself Smiley Wink

Amazon.com is actually where I have got the most money for my used video game items, I can set my price, they give me plenty for shipping, I don't have to worry about payment/paypal, and they charge me less than ebay!

I agree! Having one device that can play all of your PlayStation games is better than having 2.

Would you guys rather spend your time playing all of the awesome next gen games instead of playing old outdated games?  I have been playing games my whole life and have never had the urge to play PS or PS2 games.  There's so many PS3 games that keep coming out that I can never get caught up.  I still have a pile of PS3 games that need to be platinumed still.  Also when I bought my PS3 I sold all of my dvd movies and only buy and rent blu-ray movies now.  I think that change is a good thing and you shouldn't let yourself get stuck in the past.  When the PS4 comes out I will sell my PS3 and all of my games and it will be a race again to try to keep up with all of the next gen games coming out.
