    does the ps4 have backwards compatibility with ps3 games?? my cousins want to upgrade their ps3 fat to a ps4 and they really don't want to get rid of all of their controllers and 45 games in their library... can I place the ps3 game into the ps4 and download the game off the ps store or something??

    No.. Ps3 games no... As for other PS games I am not sure if it emulates them

    Your only option is PSNow which i personally think is a joke.

    it's not one of thoose fancy clound bullshitery that the game runs in their servers and it's streamed to you, or isn't?

    what
    Its a Netflix like game streaming service. The game is streamed to your device negating the need for processing hardware.
