New PlayStation 4 rumored to have no backwards, forwards compatibility

scea

Early speculation on Sony’s next generation console, tentatively titled the “PlayStation 4″, is that the console will not only not feature any backwards compatibility with PS1, PS2 or PS3 titles but it will also not have any compatibility with any PlayStation 4 games either.

“Simply put, it’s a measure of cost,” said one source who did not want to be named. “The amount of money Sony is putting into this next gen console in development and components alone would justify a $700 or higher price tag, but they know they can’t get away with that so it’s a matter of removing some features that just aren’t necessary, and game playback is one of those.”

The source went on to explain that the ‘PS4′ would include access to the PlayStation Network, streaming video services such as Netflix and Hulu, photo slideshows, music playback and other entertainment functions. “It’s quite the entertainment device,” the source said. But will the lack of game compatibility turn off some buyers?

“I’m not concerned,” wrote one poster on Sony’s official forums. “I’ve been a die-hard Sony gamer since the original console and I certainly won’t stop now. I use my PS3 for all of my entertainment, and I’m sure the PS4 will do it much better.”

Public opinion on the Xbox forums is that the Sony fans are a bunch of fucking idiots.
