That is fantastic news, honestly. Nintendo and Sony are gonna have a rough time outdoing MS now.

Nintendo already has backward compatibility :S



Bet reminder: I bet with Tboned51 that Splatoon won't reach the 1 million shipped mark by the end of 2015. I win if he loses and I lose if I lost.

As much as I would love it.  I doubt they will.


i know

they have PS Now,they could strenghthen that much more and add games and streaming is future of gaming

but it probably won't even be a big deal as people are so caught up plsying todays game that they might not want old game

 

as for me,i love backward compatibility and i think it is a necessity and think companies are stupid and greedy to remove

BC is a great feature.  I respect MS for doing it.

But I doubt this will have the effect people are thinking.

Nintendo already has it, however Sony doesn't. I doubt sony will prep anything up in time, so probably a price cut coming.


So Sony would react with a price cut out of the ass to this? What sense does it make?

If the PS4 gets a price cut, as a lot already expect, it's because they got their hardware price decreased and can do it, and it was a decision that took a good thinking and a lot of maths and projections to make it past to being reality, as it has to prove to be a good move to Sony itself.

To be fair when I got my 360 I never once played Xbox games on it. Nor did I play ps2 on ps3 and guess what I don't play wii on wii u. I think people are slight over reacting. Unless the whole off Xbox live market place is available off course.


THIS.

I hope it forces Sony to work on PS4 backwards compatibility eventually. I would buy a PS4 much sooner then. 

Very much agreed. There is no reason for them not to get on it now cause it will definitely tilt the scale in MS's favor.

Oh? Is backwards compatibility a good thing now? I was informed it's a relic of a bygone era, completely unnecessary in this day and age.

Well anyway, hello Microsoft welcome to 2012.



Holy smokes - b/c with Xbox One? I might have a reason to buy Xbox One now lol.

 

Wish Sony would do this but I doubt it due to PSNow.

First real megaton of E3.



Backwards compatability won them E3? That's... pathetic...

I'm watching their cool trailers and the things on stage and I'm really liking what I'm seeing. But backwards compatability, winning e3...? Really?
