I don't get why backwards compatibility is such a big deal. My PS3 can't play my PS2 games...but my PS2 is still hooked up to the TV, sitting right next to the PS3. Unless you want to get ten bucks trading in an old system, what does it matter if a new system plays the old one's games?
Okay, if you only play Sony games it's not a big deal. However, here is what I have hooked up to my TV:
- Wii (Gamecube BC and emulators from Atari 2600 - SNES)
- Sega Saturn
- Sega Dreamcast
- Playstation 2 (PSX BC)
- PC (Streaming and DVDs)
I really don't have the room to add a PS3, PS4, 360, Wii U, and 720 to that setup.
I had an Atari 2600 as a child and my college roomate had an NES/SNES. Later, I had a PS1 in 98" and nothing until my PS3 in 2009. I bought a 360 in 2010 and that's pretty much it. I plan to get both the PS4 and 720 in 2013/2014.
