Honestly lack of Backward compatibility on PS4 is NOT even a problem

For these reasons:

1.-Because PS3 will be available forever and Sony will never stop itīs mass production.

2.-PS3 will never get YLOD or get itīs Bluray laser dead, and repair pieces will be available forever.

3.-Original PSN will never go down and developers / publishers will never retire their products or lose their licence so they will be always available for re-download on PSN.

4.-You can emulate PS3 on any Computer available so itīs not like all the super expensive software + DLC you bought is now going to the trash when your PS3 dies (it wonīt)

Don't expect the irrational many to acknowledge that the PS3 still exists.

I've seen this topic somewhere else. It was a waste of time then and its a waste of time now. No BC means no PS4 for me. Suck it Sony.

All I read was "Hey guyz let's just pretend the PS4 BC isn't a total s***storm even though we'll be getting charged extra for it regardless of whether or not we want to use it!"

Gtfo, Sony can die in a fire.

Yeah I never found BC that important, never played a PS1 game on the PS2 or a PS2 game on the PS3.

If I buy a PS4 I'm going to play PS4 games.

The tc is either being sarcastic or irrational if serious at all.

Problem is everyone said the same about PS2 BC for PS3 "they will charge us" "they will make it available"..... it never happened.

We are not before a "greedy" act but just a lazy / stupid one from Sony

I'll pay more for backwards compatibility.

Know that if you allow someone to take advantage of you, they might make it a habit.
