So, is the backwards compatibility overhyped?

Why do you buy new gen consoles?

For last gen games! 10 3.05%
New gen is for new gens! 189 57.62%
Both, but new gen more. 121 36.89%
Both, but last gen more. 8 2.44%

It's a nice feature which I always welcome (unless it runs poorly). As much as I'd love to show off my console collection, my current living space currently doesn't permit such a thing. So more space under the TV, the better.

Over hyped and overrated.Notie the sales have not improved since the announcement.

I believe that it isn't that big of a deal, but that's just me. If the rest of the gaming community thinks it's a big deal, then I guess it is.

I bet the Wii U would sell more than 15M LTD by the end of 2015. He bet it would sell less. I lost.

Giving Alan Wake with Quantum I think is likely not (same developer, but not same franchise), but MS is going to give away Crackdown 1 & 2 with Crackdown 3. If they can atract 10k people that never played Crackdown before with that deal, it will be already a very good deal for MS.

The way MS is planning to use BC is very good for the players & the industry. They are giving a new meaning to the feature.

Tim and The Princes...

I would say no, not at all.

It's a great feature. Glad it is being added.


Really not sure I see any point of Consol over PC's since Kinect, Wii and other alternative ways to play have been abandoned. 

Top 50 'most fun' game list coming soon!


Tell me a funny joke!

More features on the console are always welcome.
