Would you trade in your PS3 for a PS4 if it had Backwards compatibility?

And you could get a reasonable price on it?

No.

When it comes to game systems, I like redundancy, just in case of breakdowns.

Math problems are the ultimate trick question. No matter how straight forward and simple they seem, the answer is never what you think it is.

As long as it was hardware-based. If it was software-based, they'd be more likely to take it away with a firmware upgrade.

I don't want to trade in my PS3 until I know for sure that the PS4's bugs were worked out. I did the same thing with the PS3 and waited to get a slim.

I'll make a big enough ruckus for everyone.

Trade it outright? Like even trade? Hell Yes. Trade in + $400? Hell no.

The only way I would buy a PS4 is if it had PS2 and/or PS3 BC. It takes years to develop a decent game library and I would want something to play while I'm waiting for games to arrive on PS4. The ability to play as many games in my library as possible is very important to me and one of the main reasons I bought my 60GB. If it wasn't for PS2 BC I would almost definitely have bought a 360.

Looking at Sony's track record of removing features in both hardware and software revisions, I feel justified saying that.
