Are you saying next gen needs to be backwards compatible for you to buy a console day one? Because I'm pretty (very) sure both the PS5 and ...whatever the next XBOX is called, will both have full backwards comparability with this gen.
it's just the reason I haven't sold my xbox 360 yet is because there are games in xbox 360 not on xbox one yet like mortal kombat arcade kollection, sonic the fighters, darkstalkers resurrection yet on xbox one . I really hate Microsoft being picky in what should be BC , But , If next gen does this I'd buy day one and retire my 8th gen consoles , I did say I'd buy Xbox scarlett at launch but in real life I'm actually uncertain and buy it 3 years later instead sometimes also apllied to xbox I guess?
I game on all consoles and PC
