to play wii games on wiiu you boot the wii operating system . they could do the same, boot up ps3 to play what we have on our ps3 systems. if you make 1 operating system its more complicated to make it compatable with older games. so the dual boot is the simplest way to do it.

im not going to pay to play ps3 games i all ready have or have to start over because the saves wont work.

Or, how about having your PS3 next to your PS4? No mess required!

The problem is not the different operating system, the problem is the difference in hardware. The Cell Processor is vastly different from the current x86 processor they will be using on the PS4.

 

Early PS3s had backwards compatibility because they literally had the PS2 hardware built-in (which was later removed due to cost). This, in my opinion, is not an option for Sony.

Wii U is B/C because its the same basic hardware as the Wii.... the only major difference is the I/O and the 1GB of RAM and the output to HD resolutioins......

I regret buying a Wii U.... I really dont think its going to be successul

I'm not going to just GIVE away something that is barely 2 months old. I'll wait and see. 

 

This is merely conversation based on the present time... unless Nintendo has a decent lineup of exclusive titles shown at E3 and PAX East, then I will sell it.

Actually, if makin backwards-compatible hardware is not an option for the PS4, they should make dual boot media! Like having a PS3 AND PS4 version of a game on ONE disk. ONE disk that can play on either platform. That way, you can still get use out of your PS3, and when you're ready for a PS4, you still have the same game that will play on it! Each BluRay disk should hold 50gigs of data. I think this is a possibility. I remember they used to sell Microsoft Office to both Macs and IBM compatible computers. They would format ONE disk to play (or load) on either system. Something to think about.......
