    I for one don't really care about Backward compatibility. I would only buy the PS4 if it plays PS4 games!!

    A highend PC could emulate PS3 games but I think it'll render the PC unusable to the point of having to reboot
    Remember in other to emulate it has to power both the PC & PS3 with addition proccessing, not a easy thing for even monster PC's

    I won't, developers have a lot to prove to me after this gen, so it depends if I want to buy it for PS4 games. If however it also played PS3 games with better AA then I would consider buying it regardless of PS4 games.

    Well I've got 97 PSX, 124 PS2, 99 PS3 & 32 PSN games
    I'd liked the PS4 to be able to play those
    Sadly the only way that would be possible would be emulation, instead of HW compatibility
    The PS4 seems like it has the balls to do it but its depends on Sony's emulator skills

    I'll just keep my PS3 to play those older games. i still have the 20GB model and it's working perfectly fine so I am not worried. honestly though, if I buy a PS4 I am most likely not going to be playing PS3 games on it. infact, I still have yet to play PS2 and PS1 games on my 20GB.

    I think the majority of people like the idea of backwards compatibility but once they get it, they don't really use it.

    I used my 60gb launch backwards compatibility pretty frequently for the first year, and stopped once some decent games started coming out. That first year was pretty bland. My friends and I were calling it the youtube machine. lol. Thankfully that ended.

    If the PS4 has a better starting year, I wont need backwards compatibility at all.

    I think that is exactly what happens! People just want it but, they don't really need it!

    I agree that would cost to much.
    And second of all you probably won't get much money for your PS1 and PS2. Maybe good money for your PS3.
    So just keep the systems if you want to play all the games.

    Having an all in one system is a nice convenience and yeah I still play plenty of PS1 games on my PS3, and I mostly use my Wii for NES/SNES games. Not sure why people have the attitude of old = $#@! nowadays. Probably COD "gamers".

    Hey now!

    I plan on keeping my PS3 until it dies, I still have a PS1 and only got rid of my PS2 because the optical drive was going out! Even with emulation, etc. there is still something different about playing it on the original hardware.
