PS4: Easy Backward Compatibility Solution

[ Edited ]

The PS4, when placed in a horizontal position, should have a sufficently large flat surface on the top of the unit. This allows easy stacking of the PS3 on top of the PS4 in order to provide excellent and 100% compatible backwards compatibility to all current PS3 owners.

Make sure neither get too hot & overheat. But I guess that is a solution.

I don't think stacking one console over the other is a good idea. Smiley Tongue

The first gen console should be bw compatible since both previous consoles were.

Put a small divider between the two, get some quality tape, tape them together. Get a decent Plastic casing, preferably custom molded. Encase the PS4 and PS3 in it. Engrave PS3+4 or something cooler on the custom casing. You're all set!!! Smiley Very Happy

That's it. I will build a PS7 before Sony even gets the idea for it!

If I put my Xbox 360 on top of my PS3, can I play CoD against people on Xbox? Given the circumstances of backwards capability, this should very easily be possible.

Hey Dopplegangergang, you may be interested in this camera phone as well:

On the subject of PS4/BC, unfotunately I don't think this would be a solution - the PS3 (all models) is not flat on top and another system would just slide off.  The PS2 would work better for BC, since both models of PS2 were flat Smiley Wink.
