Could the PS4 Have a PS3 Chip On Board?

It would be an incredibly smart move for Sony to provide two SKU's at launch, one with BC; even smarter to make it a limited edition. That thing would be snapped up faster than a 12-year-old at an R. Kelly concert.

No a guru on this, but all that tech is from 2005 so by now it should be able to get integrated at little to now cost right? I think Sony should have something, whether it be Gaikai or PSN where gamers can keep their accounts fully updated to the next Playstation. I personally will keep my PS3 around until it finally goes. Even though I am sure I'll use the PS4 90% of the time (Unless no BC then until I have completed all the PS3 games I want to), I will keep my PS3 for bluray in my bedroom. It's still a center for media and whatnots.

that has been my thought as well. a cell chip used for the ps3 that enables BC for the Playstation 4 has to be dirt cheap at this point.

Well one can certainly dream. Doubtful but I do hope that ps4 is bc.

$700...I would get the one with BC.

It would be amazing to have the PS4 capable of playing PS1-4 games. I'd pay extra for that!

I will be very happy to have a PS4 with a bonus PS3 inside. Bang for the Buck again!

I just don't see how they can do BC without having a chip. At least when you have a disc. If its something you downloaded then they could use Gaikai to look at your account and stream the games you've bought. However, I (like many ppl) have a lot of disc based games that I'd want to play everything on one platform. We'll see though.

I would buy one, and then i could get rid of 1 out of 3 ps3's i own.
