You don't want to see people complaining about BC so you made a topic about it. Am I missing something here?

Most likely senarios:

1 - Most older-than-ps3 PSN purchases will still work
2 - ps2 may work (certainly could technically but they may want to encourage PSN purchases of re-released ps2 games, plus HD releases)
3 - more hd releases, including of ps3 titles (down the line... such as 1080p versions of 720 games)
4 - some ps3 games, especially less intensive ones, quickly ported for ps4, like Castle Crashers, PS MInis, etc.
5 - Gaikai is used for streaming new and old games, may require subscription or be part of PS+

just guesses - but I hope they include as much B./C as possible -- doing it in software (thru the store) just brings them more money, makes their library larger and requires the user to have less devices.


This is a very possible senario

I am very much hoping for BC however judging from that Wall Street article it is very unlikely and this is a big disappointment. I feel that at least most psn-only games should carry over and would be extremely annoyed if they weren't, it makes digital media seem so risky to 'own'.

The reason why I prefer BC is that I like to replay old games but I do not have the space to have multiple consoles set up. Of course I could always set a console up as I want to play it, but convenience is obviously far more appealing.


Agreed which is ultimately why i got rid of my PS2. But for some reason I personally don't mind keeping the PS3 around. It's aging very nicely, and I eventually will have two rooms with two tvs, so which ever HDTV is older I'll connect my PS3

As long as it plays cassette tapes, I'll be fine.

Do we really need PS4?
PS3 is very great as is....no need for a new gen which makes developing games and prices of its console and games more expensive than what already is.

if you own a ps3 now, why do you need bc? As long as Sony keeps PSN and PS+ on the PS3 we should be golden!! Like i have written in many topics i can only hope that Sony keep's PSN & PS+ for the PS3 as well as PS4.

OK then I'd recommend get the competitor's machine, and not complaining. It sours other people's excitement for the system


Try not giving a **** about what others think.

It will greatly improve your quality of life.

Me? I'll keep complaining regardless of what you think of it. That's my right as a user on this forum, as a customer of Sony and as a consumer in general. If I am dissatisfied, I'm allowed to express said dissatisfaction.

You don't need to listen.

Sony might want to, because it will cost them a sale from me and everyone else that shares my opinion.

And if the others system doesn't provide what I want, I'll buy something else still. The games I'll miss by not buying Sony's new console (and the system itself) will hit the bargain bin/price level eventually anyway. I also have plenty of games still to play and buy for the systems that they didn't disappoint with.
Know that if you allow someone to take advantage of you, they might make it a habit.
