It's not like game consoles. iOS doesn't work like that. You can run the game if you can run the software. The only time this will be an issue is two years from now when the 5th-gen iPod touch can run iOS 7 and the 4th-gen iPod touch can only run iOS 6.

But does'nt hardware matter as well,Apple change it after every iteration.There are some rumors that the itouch 5g will have 512 MB RAM so won't that limit the itouch 4g's compatibility with it?And also,when do you think the ipod touch 5g will be released,Since it is always released september of every year.

Ooh, good, you recognize that. Yes, it matters to an extent. For 95% of games, et. al., however, it won't. You shouldn't have much to worry about. If nothing else, the graphics will look a little bit worse. Not really a big deal on a 3.5" screen.

Kind of answered your own question there. We can't know, at any rate.
