Will the PS4 system be compatible with PS3 games?

I've been an Xbox user for a longg time, but I want to purchase a PS3 to play games like The Last of Us and the Uncharted series. But since the Play Station 4 is coming out, I don't want it to be a waste of money. So should I just wait till the PS4 to come to play PS3 games?
