PS4 can't play PS3 games? Really?

God, what a useless piece of crap. So you can't get a PS4 and sell your PS3 to actually make some money back. Can't let you do that, Star Fox. Good Lord, Sony. At least WIi U gets it right. I already need to have both a PS2 and a PS3 because PS3 can't play PS2 games. I don't have space for 3 blasted Sony consoles. At least PS2 and PS3 both play PS1 games. Ugh, I'll just have to watch gameplay of Abigail/Fetch and dream of her. Infamous 2 has Nix and Lucy Kuo, but you can't freaking play as them. I hate only being able to play as that godforsaken buttmunch Cole. I want to play as some godblasted  females...

I respect your opinion but I honestly dont see the problem. Did people complain back in the day when super nintendo couldnt play original nintendo? No. Backwards compatibility has been extremely rare for the entire history of consoles. Seriously people buy a PS4 to play PS4 games, if you like your PS3 so much just plug it back in for a while, or make room somehow for it. Would it be nice? Absolutely, but its not a deal breaker for me.

You know what I find even more amazing than the PS4 not being backwards compatible? The fact that it has been out for 9 months and you just figured it out!

 

I was upset when I found out it didn't make pizza or sandwiches! What were they thinking?

I don't have room for another console. When I get a Wii U, I'll have to transfer everything off my Wii and move it out of the way. 

 

I have a 3-shelf TV stand. On the top shelf I have my Wii, GameCube and Xbox 360. Middle shelf I have my N64 and console accessories, and not the bottom shelf I have my PS2 and PS3.

then just remove one of them and put your ps3 there, and when you want to play the other one again just put it back. I have all my old consoles hooked up too but in all honesty its rare when I want to go back to an older game, which is why backwards compatibility for me personally isnt a big deal.

If I were you I would box up the gamecube and PS2 for sure, I mean in 2014 what could you possibly still be playing on those systems? At some point you either have to put things up or completely part ways with it.

I need my PS2 to play PS2 games, and my GameCube with my Game Boy Player to play GB games on the TV screen.

I make room for my SEGA Genesis. It has some pretty enjoyable video games you know.
