this should very well be possible as long as the ps4 is playing a PS3 game..

No because no one has a PS4 :smileywink:.

 

I think it would be, if they have that PS3 game playable on PS4 (via Gaikai or whatever).  But no one will know until Sony says anything about it.

I was digging around and saw some stuff saying that, yes it is possible, but I can't verify that on any official Sony stuff I've read.

 

I hope you can.

I'm hoping they allow PS3/PS4 owners to play online together in upcoming games like "Destiny", "Watch_Dogs", and "Assassin's Creed IV." But, as far as older PS3 games being streamed on a PS4, I'd assume they will have the MP taken out. Much like PS2 classics on PS3 don't have online multiplayer.

The games will be built around different architectures. So I would say no.

I don't think so either. Just hoping. Doubt out weighs the hope, though.

It sounds to me like you're thinking of the same game having a PS3 version and a PS4 version, and I would agree with you on that.  OP didn't specify what kind of situation he was thinking of which is why I replied as I did.  If the PS4 was able to run an actual PS3 game (not a PS4 port) via Gaikai, for example, I don't really see why it could not be compatible, although lag could be an issue.
