No need for backwards compatibility?

20 replies 199 views Edited Aug 4, 2013

Okay, so here's my view on the whole thing. If you already own Ps3 games, you should already own a Ps3, right? So why do you need the Ps4 to be backwards compatible? And if someone says "But what if I want to play The Last of Us, but I don't own a Ps3!?" Then download it through Gaikai. I mean, People complained so much when the Ps3 cost so much at launch. If they made the Ps4 backwards compatible, it would cost MUCH MORE, and then instead of complaining about backwards compatibility, you'll be complaining about the price. I don't see the problem of owning a Ps3 and Ps4, or just downloading the game's digitally through your Ps4. What's your take on this?

Sony really needs to start promoting gaikai. This could be a knockout blow if they advertise it right

Well I don't see a need to advertise gaikai. Its just a feature for the Ps4. They could be advertising the Ps4 in that case. It would be like advertsing cross game chat, its just a feature in the console.

It's a BIG feature. All the people crying about not people able to play older games never think about gaikai. If sony advertised said thing...

I think they would mention it while talking about the Ps4, not just make a whole campaign for gaikai itself. That would be silly.

i agree completely, sony should really start promoting gaikai,

Well yeah but IMO it seems overlooked. When I visit the stupidness that is known as the IGN comment section, no one talks about gaikai.

They need something to promote first. Galkai doesn't exist yet, and we don't know how exactly it will work. That's like running a trailer for a movie that's in the concept stage. There's really nothing to show.
