PS4 What We Want and What We Dont Want

With Sony PlayStation’s huge upcoming February 20th press conference looking more and more likely to be the official announcement of the PS4, we here at Good Game ANZ have put together a list of what we want and don't want to see in the next generation of PlayStation, along with some questions we would like answered by Sony at the big event. (Next-Gen, PS3, Sony)

You know what I want? I want Sony to play the first 2 min 30 sec of this song along with a gameplay compilation of all the PlayStation games over years. From Spyro to Crash to God of war and so on. Aww a man can dream can he? But no kidding if this actually happened I'd jizz in my pants.

So you want to spend over $400 to play current PS3 games?? LOL! buy a ps3 bro!
So Ummm... No thanks, I don't really care for that feature... I'm buying a PS4 for other reasons;-)

Um it probably only cost 20 bucks to have it. SO if it was going to be $600 with it, it would be $579 without it. Which of course wouldn't happen because you know they would up it to $600 anyways.

i can't see it having any backwards compatibility beyond being able to re-buy PS1/2/3 titles on the PS store which is ridiculous.
DigitalSmoke  +   769d ago
You Disagreed, and then agreed.
GraphicX  +   769d ago
i agree we want backwards compatibility, but i can't see it coming the way we want it (ie. use the game discs we own & put them straight in).

The issue is not with the media or its format. The issue is a architectural hardware issue.

So unless there are going to be PS3 processors soldered onto the PS4 board, no go.

I'm a big proponent of BC, but it's simply not physically doable, and I'm okay with that. If it was Sony simply deciding not to include it, that be a different story.

Agreed - I'd like it in there, but not at an extra $50/unit. Someone once suggested having a plug-in BC chip that people could pay for - probably too fiddly to work reliably, but that'd be the way to do it.

@ -Falaut- Don't listen to the rumours. PS4 will have an updated Cell processor, so the architecture will be there to play all PS3 games.
ziggurcat  +   768d ago
i don't.

Every Playstation went to lengths to have BC intergrated.
Why wouldn't Sony make the option available this generation.
There are bound to be different versions in stores, it isn't hard to see a BC version being made available for a certain price, if not with a PS3 trade in? which is a long shot but whatever.

No backwards compatibility no buy.
Nyromith  +   769d ago
Very good article. I agree with every point.
MysticStrummer  +   769d ago
It's probably a little late to make a list like this, isn't it?
nigelp520  +   769d ago
-Physical backwards compability for ps1,ps2, ps3 games
-OtherOS back

-Bring back Identify

We intellectual gamers don`t want cheesy hollywood look-a-like games like killzone. We need games with depth. Games we praise while the majority having a big ? over their heads. We need Tetsyua Takahashi minds.

I want a wide array of *standard paint color to choose for the PS4.

Also hope the noise levels from exhaust fans won't be as bad as PS3.
sprinterboy  +   769d ago
Maybe they will do 2 SKU`s so the gamer can choose which PS4 to purchase or they may make it timed again, BC for the first 6 Months with console then take the feature out for price reasons.
