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?
Exactly, having two systems is better sometimes, you can hook them up to different TVs and have guests / kids play the older system when you play the new.
And if the system breaks someone will release a ripoff that can play the discs, like there is for the NES/SNES.
