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

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.
I am a nontheist, a nihilist. And I'm sure god loves me anyway.

It would make the console cost more money that's all people need to know.
