WC - As talk of the new generation of consoles has begun to heat up, there’s been two particularly powerful rumors swirling about. Rumors that if true could prove more damaging to both the Playstation 4 and the new Xbox than any other snafu in the history of gaming. I am, of course, talking about the continued lack of backwards compatibility and the possible end of used game support. Talks of both of these features have featured at one point or another during the gaming industry’s continuing narrative on the Next Generation, but more and more fervently we’ve been hearing these rumors that both of these features will be disabled. Some have cited the new PC-esque installation process that next gen games supposedly will require as the end to Used Gaming support; and as for Backwards Compatibility…well, Nintendo is the only one still using it, and Sony dropped it a while ago.
