    All i want is PS3 and PS2 backwards compatibility on the PS4.

    I'll just use my PS3 or PS2 to play PS1 games if i want.

    I really doubt we will see traditional BC on ps4.
    A BC based on streaming is quite likely though.

    Sure they'll be no backwards compatibility on the PS4. The PS3 still has plenty of life in it. Sony said it would have at least a 10 year life cycle and they'll still be good games developed for it over the past couple of years. Backwards compatibility is pointless. If you want to play older games, get your older console out.

    I got to switch the title lol..

    The point of the thread isn't exactly about Backwards Capability. Sony needs innovate to inspire the rest of the gaming world a way that no one will need backwards capability. The exact way Sony decided, you buy PlayStation All Star Battle Royale for the ps3, you should get the Vita version downloadable or vice versa. Digital download may have its negative side, atleast you won't have to worry pulling out any older console.

    Think Sony would be making a HUGE mistake if they don't make PS4 backwards compatible. It has taken me years to build my collection of games, and I'm sure I'm not the only one that can't afford to start all over again. There is also talk of new games exclusively linking with your console, so used games would become a thing of the past. Sony needs to wise up, and pay more attention to what the consumers want, or I don't see the new consoles selling very well.

    see to be honest, i really do not care if it has the ability or not

    I will buy the console and play games simple as

    Why does it have to be backwards compatable? Is your PS3 is going to disappear?

    I'll answer that. EVENTUALLY YES. It's not an eternal device. And unlike some people seem to believe (in the most bias of ways I might add) some of us acually have games from older consoles we still go back too. Will be the same for PS3.

    Our consoles will disappear eventually. By that time we will probably be able to emulate them on a PC.

    I don't see why backwards compatability is so important to people. Maybe they're just inconvenienced by hooking up an old console.

    Yes hooking up old console is part of the reasons especially if you have a few of them but also they each require power and you don't want to daisy chain a bunch of sure protectors or keep pluging in then junpluging. It is def a convience thing ill admit.
