Backwards compatibility I find to be very important in early adoption of a console. I'm usually still playing the previous gens consoles while I'm looking forward to the new arrivals. If they don't offer backwards compatibility then I wont get the consoles any time soon. Hell I just got a PS3 last year... --- GamerTag: RaymondMic/OptimusMega PSN: Optimus Mega SteamProfile: Megamatics
Yes because although I don't plan to throw away my PS3 I know at some point it will die so it would be nice to know that the new system has the capability to pick up the slack so I don't have to try and scrounge online stores for an old PS3.
