I was just about to post that. Yes it's a bad thing. A dreadful thing. A deal breaker, if you will.

I agree that sucks, but I'm not surprised.

The PS4 uses a completely different architecture to the PS3, and so stuff made for PS3 simply won't work on the PS4. Given that the new architecture is far better to work with for development, on balance it was the right move to make.

However, when the Gaikai Cloud does streaming for PS3 games, as Sony promised, the PSN stuff will likely work that was as well.

In the mean time I am going to buy a spare PS3.

It sounds like they can use the cloud streaming service to carry over PSN purchases. But with the fact that Sony's previous PS3 games are virtually incompatible with the PS4, I do hope that their streaming service is very reliable.

This is a hundred times worse than paying Nintendo a dollar to play your old VC games on the Wii U GamePad.

If you already have a PS3 than why is this a deal breaker? How is it worse than no disk backwards capability? Aren't they equally bad?

I suppose you're right, but that might take a long time. Oh well, I guess I'm skipping it anyways. I just hope I can transfer things to the PS5.

I seriously lol'd at this.

I think the success of the system comes down to the pricing. I think anything more than $400 will end Sony. They better not screw this up.

It sucks because these systems aren't made to last. My Wii stopped reading disks after 3 years, and I feel like my PS3 will do the same. That thing just feels like it'll malfunction any year now...

Because I expected Sony to be able to transfer my digital titles seemlessly on the PS4 and above. They obviously aren't delivering on this.

So I just heard IGN predicted that PS4 will be more powerful than the next Xbox.

I wonder if this is why the Wii U has to have the Wii mode in order to have backwards compatibility. It seems to be an entirely separate system

Unless Sony goes back to the old architecture (ie, dumps x86), then no, you won't.

I wonder if this is why the Wii U has to have the Wii mode in order to have backwards compatibility. It seems to be an entirely separate system

If Nintendo went to an x86 architecture, you'd likely lose all of your VC content. It's a different technology world entirely.

Of course that would be offset by having a console that developers actually want to work on. As opposed to the Wii U.

Developers like x86, see.

Oh Sony...

I don't think GoNintendo employs finance journalists, somehow.

Some kid's seen the little line on the graph and completely misunderstood what it actually means.

(means nothing, BTW. There's always uncertainty after a major product announcement)
