It doesn't matter how the games are delivered.  The lack of B/C in the PS4 will have nothing to do with the Blu-ray drive.  It won't be able to play PS3 games, because it does not have the PS3 hardware in it, specifically the Cell processor.  Over 90% of PS3 games use Cell features, most of which cannot be emulated by any other processor.

 

If you want to continue playing PS3 games, it would be best to keep your PS3.  It will not magically explode if you buy a PS4.


It will not magically explode, but it will definitly magically YLOD on you. smh


Yes, the PS3 "death clock" is real. In other news we faked the moon landing, and Elvis is alive and well, and running an auto body repair shop in Kalamazoo.

It's still a valid concern...

Do you really think a $250 piece of electronics is supposed to last forever? I know what you're going to say; "well my SNES still works". That's a much simpler machine than a PS3 with no moving parts, so there's fewer things to go wrong.

Nope, I do not expect the PS3 to last forever. Which is why wish the PS4 was backwards compatible so I don't have to worry about it.

Well just to point out some more obvious.....I think this upcoming gen of gaming is going to take longer than ever to get rolling. With no b/c its going to be a longer transition period to the day when everybody has ps4 and xbox720 and nobody has the old ones anymore. So this upcoming gen will also probably last longer than this one did. Maybe more like 10 years rather than 6 or 7 years
