    holidays? easily 2-3 million...but then again, i think next year PS4 will sell a lot more during holiday as this year it's still going to be relatively dry.

    That's far too low of a worldwide figure.

    @Bitbydeath For your opinion, Do you think PS4 sales would skyrocket if they added native backwards compatibility?

    that's not an easy question as it would also raise the price of the product. and if they don't raise it, they will need to cut it out of their budget for game development/support.

    Nope, I believe it is mostly hardcore gamers that hang onto their old games and being hardcore usually means they would purchase a new console within the first three years of its life regardless.

    Will it spur some interest, sure but nothing of great magnitude... IMO

    I predict that after this fiscal year is done, Sony will have sold between 16-20 million. Either number is just phenomenal for the short amount of time. All I gotta say is, "HOT DOG"!

    BC would have added $150-200 more to it's price tag which would have been a disaster.

    I agree that hiking the price up would have been bad for sales but that would be for extra hardware.
    Im not sure if the ps4 can handle ps3 software emulation but it could easily handle ps1 and ps2 emulation, the ps3 does. all the ps2 classics are played through a software emulator.
    Im not knocking down Sony. I get it. BC through a business perspective is not profitable. Selling Remasters OR the same game on PSN is.
    lol, almost forgot about Playstation Now.

    That said I cant wait to get my hands on Resident Evil Remastered

    Good points. Yeah, the hardware is the cost factor. Of course, he asked about "native" BC. That was never going to happen. I doubt software emulation will either unless PS Now totally flops.

    that is exactly why. i have no doubt they could even emulate the PS3. but that is precisely the reason why they won't: lack of profits.

    Holding back emulation is one thing (which I'm fine with) but cashing in on remasters that strictly aren't necessary doesn't sit well with me. Now on the other hand.. emulation you pay for and lets us play our old games by inserting old discs for verification? - I'm onboard with that!

    that could be a good idea but it would still not make them the money they want. and after say $5-$10, people will start complaining. with a remaster, the game gets new support (if it's online especially), and they can redo the visuals. this also means the game gets new attention, something you can't do with an emulation.

    it can be a win-win situation for those that want it. since i play a lot of online games, remasters of my fav games is completely fine, because with the PS4, they will survive a lot longer. so far i haven't bought a remaster unless you consider BF4 one which isn't entirely the case.

    So you'll happily rebuy your favorite online shooter because they shut down the servers on the latter gen. console? (trying to make a new point of view.. not necessarily win an argument )

    former gen, yes. oh not just the shut downs but games usually lose their community after a while, this is especially true after a new generation arrives. luckily, all PS3 games i own are the last pillars of online gaming on the PS3 so i'm good but i'm sure they will wither away sooner or later, they may still have players but the population will decrease and the options of what sort of rooms i can join (game modes) will lessen as time passes.

    on the PS4, it will be a lot less since it's a new console, not an old one dying off.

    at the same time, PS4 will have less people online because there's not many of them out there...but the number of online players will likely go up, not down. or at least stay stable.

    in the next couple of years, we're likely going to see a drastic shift towards the PS4 so the PS3 online community will suffer in numbers.

    P.S. for people who play multiplayer games, online community is everything. i have skipped decent games because their communities died off. heck, that's the only reason i want a remake of SOCOM.

    PS4 has sold 1 Million in the UK

    PS4 has sold 1m units in the UK, making it the second fastest selling home console of all time.

    The machine reaches the figure after 42 weeks. Wii managed the same feat in 38 weeks.

    By comparison, PS2 hit 1m in 50 weeks and Xbox 360 took 60 weeks to hit that target. PS3 was quite quick to 1m, selling to that number by week 46.

    And UK MD Fergal Gara has told MCV that many of the customers that have picked up PS4 have come over from Xbox.

    "We have certainly seen PS3 consumers come across quite hard and fast," he said.

    "But a very significant proportion are people we have never seen on our network before. And from their behaviour and the types of games they are playing, its fairly clear that a big chunk of those have come across from Xbox, which is tremendous to see.

    The PS4 is a sales juggernaut. This is Sony's industry again. Order has been restored to the kingdom.

    Yup and as you may or may not know the Wii released on Nov 19 2006 and PS4 released on Nov 15 2013. (roughly the same timeframe)

    Last month (August) PS4 had announced they reached 10 million.

    http://blog.us.playstation.com/2014/...-going-strong/

    However in September 2007 (1 month after PS4) the Wii reached 9 million.

    http://gizmodo.com/299436/

    That's a gap of about 2 million units (give or take) in PS4's favour in worldwide sales.

    PS4 number 1 again, with Diablo 3 and Madden 15 selling the most on PS4.
