Not to be rude, but your setup is atypically complex, and Sony and Microsoft have little reason to try to accommodate it. Sony is providing backward compatibility--by way of a streaming service that offers PS3 games. Presumably, you would have to buy them again. This allows Sony to make money off of those games again, which is likely the main reason they're doing it.
Hah, that's nothing. That's my reduced
setup that I went with to not overwhelm my apartment.
But yeah, I'm not saying that Sony should prioritize hardcore gamers like me. However, it's the core gamers like me who are complaining about the lack of backwards compatibility. The people posting on gaming forums and bitching about the lack of BC tend to have a little bit more than two consoles and a dozen games. Again, perfectly understandable why Sony is ditching BC, but I was replying to the guy who couldn't understand why gamers have a problem with it.
