There is no problem with systems not being BC, and the Ps4 isnt either, no, renting games for streaming is not the same as being BC.... its a service.

If it bothers you the choice is to either not get the newest "non BC system" or to get it and keep the old one.

Hey, just a heads up. This board gets really bent out of shape when you refer to Microsoft with the dollar sign in the name. I have absolutely no idea why, as I actually look at it as a compliment of a very financially successful business. But whatever. Fans of this board usually take offense to this, for some absurd reason, and it occasionally gets modded. It's happened to me, I should know. So you might want to edit or delete that post. Happy posting, everyone!

So we've proven MS can do it, good job. Will they actually pull it off in a way that doesn't scream money grab, if at all?


I'm sure they'll give a better deal than PSNows incredibly bad model. Hopefully subscription based.

I guess we'll see. Should be noted that PS Now is in beta and the pricing model will most likely improve. I mean it has to seeing how terrible it is currently.

well they did "better" it by reducing prices by a whole dollar lol

only way to "improve" it would be a straight up subscription. Rental per hour,week,month crap just will keep being over priced

I don't really care that much about backwards compatibility. Everything I wanted to do on the Xbox 360 I have pretty much done. If they end up making it possible in some way that will be cool and all, but, doesn't affect me much.

So you want MS to charge us to play old games that we can still play on the 360 like Sony does?

Um, no thank you TC.
If you are replying to my opinion, realize first that I do not care.
