1w ago - Following up on Sony's Ultimate PS4 FAQ which states PS4 does not feature backward compatibility, today we have some pictures and a video of what exactly happens when inserting a PS3 game disc in the PlayStation 4 console.
To quote: With the arrival of the next generation of gaming hardware in the PS4 and XBox One, it's also clear that plenty of people will be holding onto their older consoles, and just as obvious that developers will continue to make games for these legacy systems for a long while yet.
But what if you're looking to blend the past and future by jamming a game from the last gen into one of your new consoles? We've got the answers.
As a test, we took a PS3 game - Mirror's Edge, obviously. Here it is. And oh so delicately, so as not to frighten anyway, inserted it into our shiny new PS4.
The menu pop-up was less than reassuring. And the result even less so.
This doesn't come as any surprise, backwards compatibility was never supposed to be a part of the PS4 ecosystem and at least in this case the console identifies the fact that it's a PS3 disc, unlike the XBox One which...
To quote, roughly translated: Hi guys, I know I have not even gone two days, but here's a new release of our new manager manager. In this I added very little compared to version 1.05 CFW right, but the biggest news is the version heard that it is finally ready.

To quote via e-mail: Hi I created a little tool to help out converting all those fun game rips to iso form. This is my contribution back to the PS3 scene. Hope this helps everybody.
PS3 GAME (RIP-TO-ISO) MASS CONVERTER will convert all game rips in any game folder you drag and drop onto the CONVERT_TO_ISO.BAT file. It can also continue converting where you left off if suddenly you stop the program or your PC shuts off or whatever the scenario that may happen.
