Ps3 or ps4 to choose?

Hey all, not a fan of consoles and never was, but decided to buy for entertainment. The question is whether to buy ps3 or wait for ps4? Is it possible to run old games on a new console? And what would you chose.

Solution
About backward compatibility not yet known. Most likely PS3 games on PS4 will not be able to run (although personally I have hopes for Gaikai). In your place (given the "Money is not really an important factor") I would take the PS3 right now (and can be used.). This console is a huge number of exclusives as the already released and upcoming (Beyond, Gran Turismo 6). And while GTA 5 is announced for PS3/Xbox360. Most multiplatform games for at least another couple of years will be released on PS3 (albeit with simplified graphics and 720p).
I myself have a PS3 and in the queue for the passage of a lot of games. And PS4 will take the start.

Take PS3.
First, the console is already "checked" and games (and most delicious — exclusives) on it a huge amount — You will definitely find a game for everyone. For new items, don't worry — they're still long enough will be released on the PS3. And for the price it is now is not very big, but after the release of the next — generation consoles will drop prices on games. Therefore, if the console I plan to take now — take, will not regret. About backward compatibility of games nothing seems to be known.

PS4 comes out at the end of the year. Ready to wait a long time, choose PS4. Don't want to take the PS3 now. Games a lot. Like PS4 will support PS3 games, but what is strange online streaming, which at the moment nothing is clear.

About the backwards compatibility didn't hear anything.
Own several consoles. Took, initially, each over a separate exclusive — PS3 for MGS4 and GT5, and then came Heavy Rain, Uncharted2/3 and GOW3. Bought XBox360 because of Forza series, GOW and Halo.
I have never regretted that I was able to dive into the world of these games. Terribly sorry to the PC they didn't make it =(

I would have waited. Don't know how in the world of consoles, but for example in the world of iPhones as soon as there is a 5 — 4s is cheaper and so on. In General, if the capabilities of the new consoles you will not particularly important, the discount on the old version is already a reason to wait
Money is not really an important factor. That is, either to take now and enjoy, or to take newer, more powerful, which will potentially be a new game with improved graphics. But here an important point that the old games run. Need little big planet or similar. - Annetta_VonRueden commented on October 3rd 19 at 02:58
I think the comparison with the world of smartphones is incorrect due to a slightly different situation with backward compatibility of applications.
If you take the current on sale models of the PS3, they are incompatible with games from PS2, which is a bit frustrating. Although the first version of the third Curling irons how to run PS2 game. - alvis.Rolfson commented on October 3rd 19 at 03:01

Games with the ps3 with the ps4 is not compatible, only the ability to run old games is to wait for promised like Gaikai streaming of old games, but what you take depends on the needs on the ps4 game so far which is much less than the ps3.
