PlayStation 4 Not Backwards Compatible With Retail or Digital Games

Sony still has a lot of potential profit to make through PSN, so I doubt PS3 PSN support will shut down anytime soon.

It won't be treated like the PS2 as that console wasn't focused on online.

They don't make money off BC, period.

Look forward to GOW FullHD Saga as a paid digital download on PSN4+ though!

So if I bought FF6 or FF7 for PS3 it won't work on PS4?

even if there was BC, they would make that game anyway. there are a lot of games that will be remade whether theres BC or not.

Good thing I didn't buy them. I almost bought 6.
I did warn people about Sony's greed though. Sadly, it looks like I was right.

Yes Sony is so greedy, there not a business at all. Msoft is the greedy one. Choosing to build their system by using cheaper parts then Knowingly releasing the 360 after finding out about the RROD caused by those cheap parts long before it was released.

Only way you can argue that it isn't greed is if they NEVER release those titles on PS4.
If they do, and expect you to buy the exact same game again, that is greed.
PS3-PS4 pretty much just emulates ps1 to play the games, there is no good reason PS4 shouldn't be able to play your digital ps1 game other than Sony realizes people might be dumb enough to buy them again.

They could at least make it HDtized or adds some extras and try to pass it as a new version of the game, otherwise there is no defending this sorry fanboy.

reading these posts, I see people dont know what greed means.

question though, at any point has Sony ever said that psn will always be around, and that all games purchased on psn will always be available on psn, and that psn would never go away? serious question.
