PLAYSTATION 4 BACKWARDS COMPATIBILITY?

OK, so playstation it's fine that you put out all this information about how awesome PS4 is going to be, how powerful it is, and even how innovative you all have been.  Honestly though. I dont care about all that.  All I want to know is whether or not the system will be backwards compatible??

 

If I have to pay for backwards compatibility I can tell you right now I WILL NOT buy a PS4.  I will wait 5 yrs down the line whenever PS5 is coming out and then think about it.  I will more than likely buy the XBOX INFINITY since they have demonstrated their concern and understand the customers desire for BC. 

 

That being said.....PLAYSTATION WHAT'S THE WORD!?!

Some information has been said, but nothing really Official has been stated. Just wait until they announce it. It should be soon... We may hear something at E3 (next month) or after summer.

These kind of threads should really be combined into one super thread, this is just getting annoying.

Your PS3 will not magically disappear if you buy a PS4. It will not immediately stop working or blow up.

If the PS4 was b/c, it would cost about $1,200, because it would need the PS3 hardware and extra cooling components to keep it from melting.

people not buying the ps4 just because no bc is pretty redicuolous IMO.  If you own a ps3 why don't u just keep that?  Even if you do not have enough space on your tv you don't have to keep them connected. Just put the console somewhere else. I buy new consoles for new games not the other way around

Oh reeeeeeeeeeeeally???

http://support.xbox.com/en-US/games/xbox-games/play-original-games

 

The following game list is final as of November 2007. No additional original Xbox games will be added to this list.

 

They were so "concerned" that they took it away from the 360 and you never even noticed. So I supposed now you're going to be "outraged" at them too? 

 

All of a sudden "gamers" are so principled that they need to take a stand against everything and ANYTHING, when all the while things happen right under their noses that they just let slide on by. This isn't about backwards compatibility, it's about piling on the outrage against Sony because that's what everyone else is doing.
