Pocket-Lint: The PS3 is dead, long live the PS4. Except the PS3 is so far from dead it's almost ridiculous. For one thing, there is a persistent rumour that when the PS4 launches, it will not be backwards compatible with PS3 games. That's not a hardship for most, as almost everyone who will want a PS4 is quite likely to already own a PS3. But what if you don't? Well, as we've found out, there's never been a better time to get a PS3 than right now.
