Just exactly the boost Sony needed good on them. Knew they still had it in them! ;)

6 ( +9 / -3 )

I was thinking about buying a next gen console but I heard that both the PS4 and Xbox One are not backwards compatible.

3 ( +3 / -0 )

@John Same here. If the PS4 was backwards compatible, I would have bought one already. I just decided to hold off for a year or two, or until Uncharted 4 comes out...whichever comes first.

Why do you need backwards compatibility in this digital era where you could just download the games.

1 ( +3 / -2 )

Because if you download the games, you have to pay for them again.

PS3 was also not backward compatible to the PS2 (only shortly) but what kind of news is this, it is still not out in Japan!!!!

By saying that you have to pay for them again, you mean that you already own the games in a previous generation console? If that's the case, then you don't need a next gen console to play those games.

Who cares, can't SONY make money making useful things anymore?

-7 ( +2 / -9 )

I wonder if I can sell mine for a tidy profit once those in line for endless hours at Bic Camera are turned away.... I would probably get rushed.

Nahh, I wouldn't part with mine.

There is supposed to be backwards compatibility through Sony's Now streaming service hitting later this year, but I would just use my "old" PS3, and still do since there are a lot of good and free PS3 games (Bioshock infinite, Dante, etc.) for PS Plus users, which is required for PS4 online games. The Now service will likely be a subscription based service though, no thanks.

Which one is better, x-bone or ps4?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

The launch version of PS3 was backwards compatible. I have one of those. In the later generations of this they removed this feature.

Why bother with wanting backwards compatibility when you already own the old console anyway? I suppose it means you don't get to sell the old one and it clutters your AV cabinet... but so what, really
