Wait. That's a stupid argument though. Nintendo's NEVER had BC. (well, not counting Virtual Console on Wii, of course).
PS2 was bc with PS1, PS3 (fat) was BC with PS2. It's sorta Sony's thing.
Well..was, Not anymore, I suppose.
I thought wii could play ngc and wii-u could play wii. Still, that is beside the point, if anything things should attempt to change for better.... not for worse. If its to get worse then next gen is pointless in the first place.
Oh wow, the Wii definitely can play NGC games. I have no clue how I forgot that. I have a Wii laying right next to my PS3. :(
Though, in my defense, I never owned a GC, I guess. D:
Nintendo has also done BC on their handhelds for a long time.
I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book. Groucho Marx
Actually the SNES was backwards compatible with NES games, you just needed an attachment to play them.
Wait. Those people are stupid, though. Nintendo's NEVER had BC. (well, not counting Virtual Console on Wii, of course).
As I and others have said, there's an adapter that you could buy for the SNES to play NES games on it, then there was also the Gameboy Color, which was backwards compatible with original Gameboy games, the Gameboy Advance which was backwards compatible with both Gameboy and Gameboy Color games, and the DS which was backwards compatible with Gameboy Advance games.
To say Nintendo consoles never had backwards compatibility is simply stupid.

I agree that the argument doesn't apply these days.
The NES and SNES are FAR more reliable than any console today. Plus, the SNES sat perfectly on top of the NES so there wasn't a space issue.
Nowadays, BC is more important because we have no idea when our PS3s will break, and how hard they will be to find in the future. My SNES is 22 years old and going strong. Even the super slim won't be able to do that. My NES is 25 years old, and I've only had to replace one 72 pin connector, which is cheap and easy.
