If Sony was actualy releasing PS4, why compete with Last of Us, Beyond, and GoW?

Seriously, would you announce a brand new system when you have a bunch of heavy hitters and great games coming out for your "OLDER" system? Isn't that counter productive? Look at the PSP and the Vita, PSP is still getting more games and more sales. Won't BOTH hurt sales of each other? This whole "PS4" is coming out thing, seems way to early for Sony.

If Sony ACTUALLY releases the PS4 they are going to suffer for it. Lack of backward compatibility has been Sonys theme for screwing up lately.

The next PlayStation will most likely have backwards compatibility and people can still buy those games on the PS3 and play it on the next-gen PS.

Unless those games are also on the PS4 I don't see why it would matter.

You are aware they took BC AWAY from the PS3. Vita had zero backwards compatibility. Also every single tiny rumor that has come out about PS4 says don't have it.

On top of that it's using a completely different type of processing that would make it extremely hard to have straight BC and instead rely on emulating and most likely a poor job emulating.

Look at how PSP is selling significantly better then the Vita. How the Vita is selling little to nothing.

If you want a example of how it can kill the sells of the "next generation" system.

Still buying all 3 AND a PS4 whenever it comes out. Don't see how it hurts anything.

So you think everyone is like you? That they spend every single penny they can on anything with the word "Sony".

In reality most people judge what has the better value then buy that.

If they see a ton of awesome PS3 games, then 1-2 PS4 games that don't come out for a while.

They will just ignore the PS4. Once it get's this stigma then it goes into a dying spiral like the Vita.

Didn't vote, but I do agree with the topic title.

Secondly, I thought SONY mentioned in an article somewhere that they would let Microsoft announce first and then follow.

I'm in that minority that wants the Feb. 20 announcement to be about something entirely different (Sony brand potato chips) and make everyone who thought it was about the next Playstation look dumbfounded.
