Well...What they don't want to say is PS4 is 'NOT' compatible with PS3, so that Sony can make more money out of PS3...Stupid Capitalists!!!! Greed is the problem here!!!! Not quality of games or consoles!!!

i still say that if i had a option between a PS3 and a PS4 i would choose a PS3 because so far it is the best playstation ever.

They just have to make it backward compatible way to many games on PSN that might not work.

I believe that the PS3 would be the best console ever probably if all its models had backwards capability with the PS2.

I agree. I have a backward PS3 and it rocks.

If it dosent play PS3 games then its not a huge loss to me if I have my PS3 still. Its not backwords compatible but I still have PS2 so it dosent bother me. Besides the games I would play on PS2 are remade now or on thier way.

For Sony its not so much an issue of money as it is the fact they swap their architectures around. Whilst Microsoft have stuck by IBM's Power PC architecture Sony have been swapping around in recent console iterations. Since they had no viable option for emulation with the PS3 they literally had to build PS2 components within the PS3 for backwards compatibility, leading to its high price and subsequent fall in price after removal of backwards compatibility.

Anyway I'm not complaining, I'd rather pick up both a PS3 and PS4 and have a x86 core architectured console thats more efficient and produces higher quality PC ports

MetallicaDragon Sorry about that. Didn't mean to report you. I was browsing on my PSP and things were a little weird. I actually agree with you since I never get rid of my consoles and there aren't any signs of them giving up now. The PS4 not being backwards-compatible isn't too much of an issue.

the thing with consoles is that you cant upgrade them (i.e their cpu, gpu etc) which limits it. But with PC you can upgrade anytime. So PC will beat console graphics

Umm It's less about money..

As hardware gets more advanced it gets harder to emulate. There are already rumours that both Playstation 4 and Xbox 720 will be using PC based hardware instead of the bespoke one of a kind stuff in previous systems which does make backwards compatibility hard. It may be hard to believe but there are very few PC based processors even now that can match the processor in the Playstation 3, it doesn't make them worse it just means that it'll be hard to emulate the games..

If and when Sony and Microsoft come out next year and say it can't do backwards compatibility, it's not because they don't want to as of course they do. If a system supports the previous gen games then people will upgrade to it faster knowing their old games will offset the lack of new games. So they won't leave backwards compatibility out unless they have no choice.

Yes Sony and Microsoft are after money, but removing backwards compatibility isn't the way to do it. Yes Sony licenced the ability to make HD re-releases of Playstation 2 games, but they only did that after 5 years of trying to get Playstation 2 games running on the Playstation 3 hardware. They succeeded for a few as there are a few on the Playstation Store that legit work on Playstation 3 hardware, but to get a few working after 5 years of work shows how hard it is.. Just accept that as hardware gets more powerful that unless the new system has similar hardware to the previous system backwards compatibility becomes near impossible.

It's sad that Microsoft and Sony are only after money. They need to care about customers/players.

Don't tell me nintendo is like them, Nintendo is my favorite company..

Nintendo are like them want to know why? Because they are a business and what do business operate for? Money, that glorious substance that makes the World we live in work. You don't think Nintendo are in it for the money? You think they needed to release the Wii Balance Board? The numerous peripherals?

Yes Sony and Microsoft like money but not as much as Nintendo.. Sony and Microsoft sold their consoles at a loss to get high spec, high quality systems into peoples homes. They then made money off licencing fee's for games and peripherals. Nintendo on the other hand sold a console that cost them $80 to manufacture at $280 made billions upon billions of dollars and then continued to make more money off peripherals the console didn't need.

Anything other than controllers is not necessary and is a blatant money grab. I include Kinect, Move and Balance Board in this, though yet again Nintendo had additional things like the snap on Wheel peripheral the Golf Club peripheral, Wii Motion Plus which wasn't free even though it was something that should have been in the controller from day one.. So to think Nintendo is unlike them when they are borderline worse than them is unfortunately mistaken.
