Idea in regards to PS4

10 replies 160 views Edited May 23, 2013

I just thought of this this morning and I had to post it, would it not be good to have a backwards compatible PS4. However I know that is likely not going to be the case with the PS4 and as such I would like to propose a piece of hardware that you can attach to the console, one for each console so you have one for the PS3 PS2 and PS1. This device could be sold separately from the console itself and may raise even more revenue than the console would by itself as I am fairly sure some people still play on earlier generation consoles or at least want to.

So you're basically suggesting that Sony does what Sega did with the Sega 32x and Sega CD which did far more harm than good.

Bad idea, flat out.

So you want to be able to tape your PS3 to your PS4. 

 

I smell money.

This has been debated already, again and again and again.

 

The processor architecture of the PS4 is different from the PS3 - therefore different O/S and different programming.  The PS4 is x86 based while the PS3 is Cell.

This is a good idea. In fact, here is a prototype Sony is already working on....

I don't think that is a good idea. B/C is pointless. I still have my older ps and ps2 and plan on keeping my ps3 as well. If I want to play the older games ill play them on those consoles.
