Your games are tied to your account. If you remove your account from the system, the games will not be playable.

But isn't he asking if he transfers his account to a PS4, will he still have those downloaded games?

No, he wants to sell his PS3 and have the 4 games remain on the PS3 (presumably so he can advertise "Selling PS3 with 4 games installed")

Those games won't play on a PS4.  The PS4 is not backward compatible with PS3 games.  At least it won't be at launch.

Ok, I didn't realize DLC's were also not backwards compatible.
