This is the ONLY thing I HATE about Sony home consoles, is theres NO Backwards Comp!!! Like sure it cost money to add emulation on Consoles but look at its competitors! THEY have it! This is a feature that Ninteno has that makes their consoles look so good! I still have my PS3 to play PS3 games, if PS4 had B.C. I would've sold my PS3 to buy MORE PS4 games which will bump up Sony's revenue. I already made a thread about how not having Backwards Comp. is hurting Sony financially. Sony has a chance to MAKE the PERFECT console ever! You know what the last perfect console was??.... THE PS2! Normal controller(taking a shot at Nintendo's wacky gimmicks) Backwards Comp (taking shot at PS3), Good games, Updated graphics, and full of good features! It's just as frustrating as Nintendo's failure of keeping up with current hardware annd Microsoft's expensive prices. Sony please open your eyes!
Sure Sony announced "ps2 on ps4 games! we gave you what you wanted!"... no you didnt!! We STILL CANT put our PS2 games in our PS4 and play them, you are FORCING us to REBUY games with this "added features" thing. we would STILL be able to use the shareplay, livestream and so on! You are FORCING us to pay for games we ALREADY own. All we ask for is for us to put our physical games WE ALREADY OWN in a physical PS4 and play them! No repurchasing them via Give Us your money PSN store. You KNOW what we are talking about. You KNOW what we want. In the mean time you are EMBARRASSING yourselves with no Backwards Compat.
Sure we can just keep playing our games on our PS3/2 right?!..... My PS2 broke and I still have ALL the games, even though if it was still working, I would've been still pissed off, because WE ALL WANT the all in 1 console. I don't want to take my PS2 games out of my closet just to play it. I would rather just play it on my PS4. I WANT to sell my PS3 and its a waste of space on keeping it just to play old games.
They ALSO have this stupid excuse of saying "Remastered so people who haven't played this game can enjoy it", SURE DO THAT, THAT IS ALRIGHT WITH ME. but that does NOTHING for me who already owns the game!! I dont care if its upscaled HD resolution either. Isn't it already upscaled on my HD tv anyways??
Also another thing, theres people STILL OUT THERE who still plays PS3 for the PS3 online games. Xbox Phil Spencer even said this about the 360. Players are still holding onto there last gen systems, but with backwards comp. being here, they will switchto new gen and still play their favorite games. Same goes for PS3 users
... Why does EVERY Gaming Company have 1 HUGE CON?! Making the PERFECT Console is EASILY possible.
