If rumors are true about the PS4 not being backward compatable will you buy it?

49 replies 128 views Edited Mar 29, 2012

My answer would be hell now.  In a world where a company like apple is dominating alot of it has to do with the fact that there apps are compatable across all there platforms.  If you take out backward compatablity you immediately lose 66+ million potential buyers including myself.  Im not sure if anyone else has heard these rumors but please do not make this mistake Sony.

this is just one of the false rumors like many that appeared before the ps3 was officially released.....happens with every system and these things always come out to be false..

Well I hope thats all it is but people should let it be known that it is not a smart move, However Sony did not say they will not release a console next year they simply said they would not annouce one this year.

IMO if the PS4 is priced right, and the games look great, BC won't matter as much...

You know what they say about rumors; trace it back to the source, and then laugh it off.

And right now there's no bigger source of laughter than GameSpot. Have they been right about ANYTHING lately?

i completely agree with that,they seem to just be digging to try and get correct information but it always turns out the opposite,they are unreliable as far as i see it...

    I would still buy PS4 if it were not backwards compatible. But I would not buy it on the first day of its release. If PS4 was not backwards compatible I would wait for a full year for the PS4 library of games to build up.


    Even if PS4 is not backwards compatible, we would still be able to play some PS3 games on PS4 because Sony would release PS3 games in the Playstation Store that could be played on PS4 and make us buy PS3 games that we already own, so that we could play them on PS4.

i agree with that as well,BC has never concerened me in the least bit,i almost always just play the game on the intended system other than my old original xbox that has alot of the older emulators lol...but as bronxsushi said above i would wait some time to let the good games come out and let the developers get used to it..
