Wouldn't affect me. I'd get a PS4 for oh say PS4 games.

really? no BC? That's pretty weak, come on, I thought the transition might be easier and smoother nowadays with the tech we have. Guess not.

I don't see what all the complaining is about... I didn't buy my PS3 to play PS1 or PS2 games. I won't be buying a PS4 to play PS3 games on either.

May as well just play on the original console anyway, it will always work better than emulated BC. Even hardware based BC still has a few problems, I would rather just play the games as they were intended.

Just keep a ps3 around and that solves the BC talk. Besides I don't want a expensive ps4.

I would've thought Sony learned its lesson and just left the console biz completely.

Isn't this old news?
Anyway I feel backwards compatibility isn't needed for the PS4.

I don't know about this, the reason I felt people didn't move onto the ps3 quickly was because it meant not having anything that great to play compared to their ps2's and that's also what held me back at first you want me to hang back and wait 1.5 year's basically for games to catch my attention again SONY? Well damn now I know to wait 2 years until a Metal gear come out!
For the people saying gaki will have your old games, Seriously?? you want me to re-buy my old games on gaki that I have avalible to me right now?well I'll be damned time to shell out more cash for things I already owned...

Think the main reason is because of the on-coming 4K resolution which I'm sure Sony will be pushing for the PS4 to have so it would be future-proofed with their line 4K television.

And so backward compatibility might not be possible.

Also this could inevitably bump it's price higher than the competition ( mainly the XBox 720 or whatever it would be called ).

I was pissed at first when PS3 lost the backwards compatibility with PS2 games. Honestly I don't really care anymore I still give my PS2 a run or I get the game off the PSN store. With the PS4 they might include the ability to PS3 games with emulation or hardware who knows. Its all speculation about the spcs of the PS4 if anything if PS4 does not play PS3 games I don't care I will still give my PS3 a run. I just hope PS4 uses Blu-Ray again I hate disc swapping.

only 60gbs were backwards huh? So my 80gb is just magical and can do it? Sweeeeet. I doubt these rumors already. Either way I have a ps1,2,and 3 so I think I'm okay.

whats the problem!? most hdtvs/recievers have multiple outputs. have the ps3 and the ps4 connected and switch to the one you want to play. it doesnt get much simpler than that.

OH PLEASE DON'T SAY THAT THE PS4 won't play PS3 games. cause i remember earlier this year a rumor that the PS4 will be backwards compatible WITH PS3 disc.
