PS4 not worh it

55 replies 668 views Edited Jun 16, 2013

dir sir or madam

 

     I have been a loyal plausayion fan for years, no matter what other systems I own, my playstation is the core. When Ps3 came out I was dissappointed i was not backwards compatible. I bought a PS3, but have regretted not being able to play my old favorites from the earlier systems. This PS4 will be the same, even with this streaming bull I heard about, it is not worth rebuying old games over again--loosing all game data from my old games( which is bigger than the monetary loss. I do not enjoy downloads, prefer physical copies. I do not have room to keep both systems. So I believe my days of Playstation are now over, as with X-box. Fortunately the Wii U will allow BC in the physical form.

It's not worth it because you cant play old games on a new system? You're telling me you want to buy a brand new system to play old games?

You sir are NOT A PLAYSTATION FAN. The Original PlayStation 3 units COULD play PS1 and PS2 games. Only the slim models and newer could not play PS2 games.

That is your opinion. People don't realize how hard it is to make it backwards compatible. Why do you think they look it out of the later models of the PS3

Backwards compatibility is a silly litmus test for what makes a console "worth it."  Did you see the Sony presser at E3?  If you didn't, then you should look it up on youtube.  If you did, and you still think this way, then I've got nothing for you.  In 20 years, when all of us are rocking out with the PS7, I hope you're still enjoying your vast library of PS3 titles.

No I don't want to have to have thirty sytems when one could cover it all, and I do not want to ripped as a consumer. I have been gaming since the early ataris and intelevisions. Tired of these pepole screwing over the consumer with new consoles. The Ps2 played Ps1 games fine, so I lost nothing in the ransition of systems. With the Ps3 and Ps4...I have and will lose...because I have no space for another system, so one would have to go...and I have tons of games that I could no longer play, most of which I am fond of.

If you are such a dedicated Playstation fan, wouldn't you still have your old consoles to play your old games?

 

I do.  Smiley Very Happy

"screwing over the consumer with new consoles"?????????????????

I'll bet you hate the new light bulbs, and think that flat-screen TVs are for noobs. My first system was an Atari 2600. Oh, how glad I am that the gaming industry thought it might be a good idea to, I don't know, *improve* over time.
