The poll which GameStooge has been running since August has shown what Sony gamers want most: restoration of PlayStation 2 backwards compatibility.
Of course, that's not going to happen, since Sony would rather you either buy a PS2 or perhaps buy PS2 games from the PlayStation Store, or have you buy stuff like God of War Collection with "HD graphics!" when the original PS3 upscaled games, making God of War 2, for example, look gorgeous.
It isn't just PlayStation 3 owners – all gamers want backwards compat. Xbox 360 owners like being able to play Halo 2 or Knights of the Old Republic, for instance, while Wii owners? They can play all GameCube games right from the start (though maybe there's a reason for that.)
$100 PS3 price drop did it for me: 9%
Restore PS2 back compat: 32%
Drop game prices by $10: 24%
Give PS4 release date: 12%
Another PS3 price cut: 15%
Drop PSP Go price by $100: 8%
