What they are going to do is make is buy the old games we hold dearest. Sony is a company, and their main focus is to make money. They know costumer satisfaction is a major income, but for the few that actually wants backwards compatibility, we make up a small portion of those who care. That's why they won't add it in, because they can easily make money from us to buy these older games; even if we already have them.

You really think they make a ton of money by you buying a ten year old game for ten bucks? Please, the make money when you buy NEW games. The console is a LOSS LEADER. They break even or even lose money on the console, so they can make a profit selling things that go with it, i.e. GAMES. Playing your ten year old games, even the ones they sell for ten bucks on the store, is essentially a LOSS for them.

 

Why do so many think that there's a veritable goldmine in reselling your back library to you? It's a gamer misconception that has been repeated, and now it's taken on a life of it's own.

Like they said KEEP YOUR PS3! I've kept every console i've ever bought. Got a stack of PS1s and PS2s still in working order. Also I have multiple BC PS3s. I'll never buy PS3 games re-released on PS4 cause its blatantly illogical. The OP was incorrect in saying Sony failed with not making systems BC. PS2 and PS3 are BC. sorry ewe gots stuck wit da lobotomized PS3s. Smiley Tongue Smiley Wink Kinda like taking a chainsaw to the "Mona Lisa" then saying its better cause it fits in a 4"x4" frame. Lol! But KUDOS to Sony for learning from mistakes. IBM to AMD = good choice! I'll be getting a PS4 but i'm avoiding the launch gen. Ya'll can step on the landmines for ppl like me. Lol! ie launch PS2s and PS3s?

i too am a bit dissapointed to hear to backwards compactability.  for the hardcore games that constantly play new games and rent and buy everything its prob not a problem, they are a one and done type of gamer and thats how most prob are but when your a more casual gamer and maybe acturally have a favorite game series, your going to go back and play the games from your favorite series again.  and i think their should at least be a higher price version with b/c and if you want it pay for it and if you dont then dont pay for it.

I believe it runs on DOSBOX. The PC community has a massive community that makes sure that having a game that won't run at all is a rarity. I don't need to keep a different computer out b/c someone fixed it's problems. I want to play lego island, but it won't run in it's current form. If I wanted to play it badly enough, I could find a way to fix it. I don't get that freedom with a console.

I know that this is the case about consoles, but I haven't seen this with PSone classics. Are you telling me that FFVII, which has been on the top sellers many times was sold at a loss? Where did you get this information?

 

 

Here is the problem with the "keep your PS3 argument". I am on my 3rd PS3, I wore out the others. I also bought a second Xbox b/c the first one is about to die just from playing BF3. My consoles wear out very quickly, so this is going to be a big problem for me. The share button is enough of a problem for me ( I know it is optional, that doesn't mean it doesn't take resources from the console that could be better used). I wasn't happy when they took out the bc for PS1 and 2. I am afraid to play my old consoles b/c they only have so long to play. I get that they say, "Oh, you will be able to stream your games to your console". No, thanks, I have enough of a problem buying digital games as it is, I am not just going to hop on this like everyone else. It doesn't mean it will fail, it just means that I will have a hard time buying it if I only have a couple of games to play on it for a while.

  Ya... I remember asking for a PS3 in 1990. You know, to go with mt 3Dtv and my 3d games like black ops and uncharted 3. The guy at store said I was a little early.

 But seriously, you should really learn to fully read things and also realize what year certain consoles and games game out. All my PS3 stuff is 1997 or newer, some games barely a year old. PS3 games should absolutely be playable on PS4.
