From their cloud service yes but the physical disc no. That's what I read anyway.
That is exactly the way I read it, also. It says that the PS4 doesn't have native compatibility, but the cloud service makes it compatible with everything. I think this is a win, except if it costs people from being able to share games. I remember when I was younger, a friend would bring over a game and I would like it and buy it. I have heard that games may or may not be licensed to a single ps4. Times have changed, and I usually just go rent the game from redbox before I buy it now.

Exactly, how will single license games effect the game rental business??

Sony released that the ps4 will not block used games. 4k media playback will be possible for photo and video only, no 4k games. Some people are bummed about that but I don't think it's a bad thing. Games running native 1080p at 60fps with all the new power is gonna be a solid upgrade. Most games now run native sub hd up converted by the system. Psn purchases won't be carried over and no backwards compatibility. As a long time console gamer, I'm very much looking forward to adding this and the next Xbox to my setup

Re: Ps4

I figured they wouldn't block used games since that market also helps boost sales in general and total profit for Sony. This entire concept did give me an idea about how to make awesome video games with hardware just the same way as most mapping services provide my desktop pc for my business.

Can you point me toward the article that says it will be 4K playback?? Is it 4K upconvert or 4k passthrough?

Sorry dude, i tried to post the link from ign but im so new it wouldnt let me yet. They haven't really stated if it will just be 4k streaming capabilities or 4k blu ray. I'm sure we'll know more around e3. Just said media playback of photos and video only and that 3d isn't a focus right now

Re: Ps4

What I would like to see is a 128 GB SSD drive in the PS4. Would make boot times and loads faster...especially if your going to be putting nice memory and processor like they are.
