My PS4 told me to kick rocks.

This.  It's always been a feature.


Good.  I thought that to be true.

 

But up to now I really can't say that I was 100% certain that either of our PS3 slims would play PS1 games.

Same here.  Intelligent Qube is also a part of my collection but I never progressed very far in it on the original PlayStation.

 

Sounds like it merits another look.

surprised that the PS4 doesnt play PS1 games.

i mean PS1 games are on a simple format. plain ol' CD discs and even your average smartphone has the capabilities to play them.

seems like the feature was purposely blocked on the system. probably to get people to buy PSOne classics instead of using actual PS1 games.

Not at all Sony said no backward compatibility. Playing PS1 games is exactly that backward Compatibility. So no older Sony Playstation games will be able to play on PS4.
