Hehe. But look guy... Sony is in it to win it. They make things to make monies. It don't make sense for them to make something and wait for them to slash the price to sell it. The cheaper price makes them move more units...besides like you said poor people don't buy playstations...just re-buy all your ps3 games on the gakai service if you got the guap.

Just wait until Gaikai kicks in next year after the PS4 is released. As of now, just keep playing your games on your PS3 and Vita. The person who told you about that must've gotten the wrong idea.

Yeah l heard the same information about the Gaikai Cloud Service they're implementing next year,this was shared by top Sony Playstation execs in their 2 hour PS4 premier event,and to which they plan on having every title avilale to PSVita at some point in the distant future. l own a Vita also so its great to hear that more AAA titles will make it over from PS1,2,&3 at the very least.

Do some research. It's impossible for the PS4 to play PS3 games (excluding Gaikai) due to it's architechture.

I didn't know what to say about this thread.

So I'll just leave this

I'm just curious to know how much extra it would have cost them just to include the architecture. Considering that you can get a PS3 for $200 now days, it certainly couldn't have cost them much. And it certainly could have made a lot of money considering all the PS3 digital games and content they are pretty much going to abandon. Or could it just be that backwards compatibility would have been counter productive with their Gaikai plan.

Why I already have a PS3! I dont need or want a second one. I really dont want to pay extra for my new PS4 to play PS3 games.Super glue your PS3 to the PS4 tada you just upgraded it.


Getting Older doesn't mean it's GAME OVER
It's a better idea to buy games for your PS4
Than to buy a New Console for your PS4

Like I said though. With as cheap as the PS3 is now, a higher price shouldn't really even be an issue. The small amount of money they might eat would easily be made up through the Sony store. I highly doubt it would cost a fortune to include the chips from a 7 year old console.

It is to me, and a lot of other people.  Besdies, by that logic, the PS3 should have been far less expensive at launch, and they never would have taken out the BC hardware in later models.

 

It's not like there isn't a clear precedent here.

 

Gaikai, if excuted well, is the future of the BC argument, and in such a way that this discussion will never have to happen again.  What we're experiencing now, in my opinion, are growing pains.
