PS4 has no physical BC with PS3, no reason to buy it

bah, false alarm guys i thought i was buying it at launch ill just wait a good 5 years now. Sony are idiots. *interest plummets*

they said ps1 ps2 and ps3 will only be digitally compatible (LOL expect to wait 5 years until you see your library up)

Yeah i dont really understand it either.

Bc is an easy way to get people to adopt early.

Instead we get to watch our friends suck at modern warfare 6

Yea, because when I buy a new console, the old one for some reason decomposes.

The hardware is completely different. x86 is nothing like the cell processor or the ones that came before it.

well it has all of those good features but if i can only play my ps3 games with a ps3 until they catch up and add them all digitally, then screw them. the ps4 wont be worth anything until it has a library either better than ps3, or it has all the ps3 games up digitally that i like. thatll be like 5 years.

No reason to buy one until quite a bit later at least.

Backwards compatibility was my primary concern.

if you are for physical media this is like laying a big steaming pile of crap on your face.
