I personally won't be buying the PS4 unless it has full backward compatibility all the way back until the PS1.


Otherwise I'll stick to my PC, which is cross platform backward compatible.

Definitely PS3 BC. No way in hell am I buying all my PS3 games and PSN downloads all over again.

I realistically don't think there's going to be backwards compatibility with PS2 disc games. I don't see why we can't play PS3 games and everything from the PS store.

I selected at least 2-5 games that I want, but .. that depends on the price of the thing. If it costs $500 and games are $60 each, then I'd need at least 8-9 games I want for it.

Backward compatability would be nice, but honestly, that's a fairly new phenomenon for consoles. NES, SNES, Genesis, 3DO, PS1, Saturn, Dreamcast, none of them had backward compatability with anything. I can honestly say that BC is a bonus, but it is not a deal killer if it is not there.

I think it is a safe bet that PSN is going to continue in some form, when the PS4 is released - and that the PS4 will make use of it. How much the PSN evolves between now and then, or whether the PS4 will even "share" the PS3's rendition of the PSN isn't going to change the fact that it is a very safe bet that PSN will still be around and PS4 will use it.

Or you can do like the smart gamers and just keep playing on your PS3 i never heard of a console just die and stop working because next gen was released
And backwards compatibility not gonna happen thats what PSN is for they want you to buy the games from there

Other: non-intrusive DRM. I refuse to be online at all times to play a game I paid $60 for. I don't mind a first-time authentication though. I have high-end fiber-optic internet, I just hate that form of DRM, and stuff like the PSN outage made it even more real.

Full backwards compatibility, no always online DRM, and Sony dropping the anti-used game practices for first party games.

Had that happen twice to me (both times within a year before its successor was released).
