    Hacked PS3 was pretty cool since you could backup load your PS1, PS2, and PSP games on the PS3 itself. Does anyone believe this functionality will be possible on the PS4? And possibly even play PS3 backups? I ask because I know you have to have a certain kind of hardware to emulate those consoles.

    If the hack is released,AND many people is working to make hombrews,then maybe PS4 game loader will happen.
    About PS2 loader,maybe not because as far as i know those PS2 are modded to work on PS4,not fully emulated.

    PS1 only with emulator.

    Would be much simpler just buy an old PS2 to play PS1/PS2 games, and a PS3 for PS3 games. Since emulators does not work well on all the titles and those old machines are so cheap. I know you might want an all-in-one solution, but you did have a PC and a PS4 already right? Might also have a Switch or Xbox One, so why bother?

    PS3 is 100% no. PS2 and PS1 have a very good chance at working once homebrew and emulation get better.

    Nope. It's just a cool username with an even cooler avatar.

    This also proves people care useless things more than those emulators.

    The ps4 would need a way to install cfw which is currently impossible,unless we can get the console into some kind of userland mode like the 3ds's homebrew launcher.Then there could be a slight chance of a ps1 emulator if we would be able take advantage of whatever hardware we can.

    PS2 is a possibility as the hardware should be powerful enough. The PS3 games depend on a wide range of factors. The first and most important thing is how the psnow system works.

    As in are the games rebuilt with changes specific to the PS4 or are they just streaming the games with toned down graphics (to make the streaming faster no doubt.) I mean we could potentially exploit that system to enable playback of PS3 games. However that's the only viable means I can see this happening.

    PSNOW just streams ps3 games. ps3 is basically impossible.

    sincerely hope so.
    i love my ps3 because i can play ps2 on it.

    it can also play psp psx, so sweet.
    hoping the same will eventually come for the ps4.

    these days i am playing more on my ps3 than my ps4. (even though i do have plenty of games on my ps4)

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    I do not care about PSP since PSP emulator is available on PC/MAC/LInux but I would love to see PS3 mostly for PS4. PS2 and PS1 are welcome however available on PS3 (PS1 is compatibility to PS3 but PS2 games through jailbreak via Cobra+webMan Mod). :)
