    "We don't provide the 'easy to program for' console that (developers) want, because 'easy to program for' means that anybody will be able to take advantage of pretty much what the hardware can do, so then the question is, what do you do for the rest of the nine-and-a-half years?"

    Never said it was lame. More or less something that I don't really care about anymore. I realized that after buying a Phat PS3. I played one game on it the entire time for PS2. I would just rather a cheaper console than have BC. It's great for people who want it though.

    While it would be cool (not if it ensues in an increase in price though) to have BC for either console - I don't care if it doesn't.

    I'll believe that until I hear otherwise. Ballmer hasn't been doing a good job over at Microsoft, I can see everything getting turned upside down. It wouldn't surprise me.

    Don't lump everyone up in the same category, not everyone will use it. But yeah its to be expected that Sony fans will downplay the significance of having a backwards compatible machine. I know I'll miss my 99+ games I have downloaded (still keeping my ps3) but once I go next Gen, there is no looking back.

    It would have been nice tho to use some of the ps4 features on a ps3 game. No love lost

    BC for the 720 would definitely be a plus if it's true. There may be some that didn't buy the 360 who purchase a 720, so to have that library available is good. Better to have this than some other method.

    Forgot this forum was full of kids.

    Show some stats on the use of BC in the fatty PS3's please.

    Its not a big deal. I played SSX and Bully on my PS3. There is a reason why people invest in new consoles.

    Could also be because the pastebin looks like it was written by a 15yo joining the MS defence force with absolutely no background other than "I'm an inside source".

    Or would it be the freshly created random twitter account?

    Take your pick!!!

    This would be good news to all the 360 owners out there who want to upgrade their consoles without sacrificing their game library. Not really interested in the nextbox OR BC for that matter myself. Unless MS shows some seriously crazy new games im going to pass on their console.

    We don't question what gives the 720 an advantage
    Destiny is going to be EVERYTHING that EA and MS hoped titanfall would be

    No, because we don't even know much about Gaikai yet. We don't really know how that will work . It does rely on the internet/cloud so all those feelings people have about always online should feel the same way since it depends on a internet connection.

    So, if true, Microsoft could be giving Sony a edge on power, price and ease of development?

    • The 360 SoC would add to the overall cost and MS would be stuck with it.

    • The 360 SoC being used for games would (greatly?) add to the complexity of game development.

    • The power gain from the added 360 SoC would be very little (~355GF at most).


    This is his other alleged pastebin post.

    http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthre...0#post49898730
    http://pastebin.com/p8gSu8nL

    I first tried posting this on Beyond 3D, but I guess a certain moderator wouldn't want me to do that, so I couldn't.

    The best place to post this would be NeoGAF. But there's no way in hell I'll be posting it there, since if a mod really wanted to, they could easily find my registered email address and therefore find the company I work for (or even my name).

    So I guess the next best place is here, since anyone can sign up with a free random email address.

    Anyway, I guess I'll just post here exactly what I'd have said on B3D. It's not like I'm posting pics of Durango or anything, so don't get so excited, but this is something for you to think about.

    Until the day comes at least....




    Read it. Believe it. Then you might as well not bother replying since I won't be saying another word.

    I mean that last part by the way. So ban me or whatever you want to do
    Can not tell with many words....will tell (a bit) with some pictures.

    Me and my career if I'm caught talking about specifics:

    What's this I'm reading about 'confirmed' leaks?

    A taste of what you'll be seeing soon:

    The reactions of Sony & MS fanboys after ALL the specs are known. See if you can guess which set of reactions match which set of fanboys:

    The person that posts on pastebin is credible....but all this is confusin tho if they have soc for a 360 then why is there a need for an xbox mini?

    I went to e3 in 2006 when the ps3 was announced all the games were runnin on dev kits but when the avtual retail games were out they looked nothing like what was shown at the show.

    So it's graphics then? Because if that's the case then the Durango would be in the same boat.

    Unless it's gonna be PC here onwards.

    PC may be the way to go for gaming visuals and physx but if you want a full entertainment value console are the choice.
    Next Gen graphics and viduls have to be a leap over this genration if not than it will be a failure.
