I decided to get the Xbox One first and I'll buy the PS4 later.  I'm EXTREMELY disappointed that both units are not backward compatible which means I have to keep my PS3 and Xbox 360 around Sad.

on ps4 you can stream ps3 games with play now. so it's kinda backward compatible.

The point the other poster was making is that you have to have both the PS3 and PS4 to play your already owned PS3 games.  The same with Xbox.

Micro$oft and $ony are both still putting out games (ie: the new Grid game) only for their previous gen consoles to keep us attached to them.


I honestly think they are doing in cynical way to justify (called artificial value inflation) the £50 price tag on the latest gen games.

From what I've seen the streaming is essentially like renting the game, which seems a shame. PS3s are fairly inexpensive at least.

As a sorta aside, I pretty much stuck to the Xbox360 for the past generation and my old PS2 which has been slowly wearing down, so I looked into getting a PS3 to play all the older PS1&2 games along with the PS3 games, and learned they apparently downgraded the PS3 in its later versions to make it cheaper. I pretty much figure I'll just look for a used PS3 80 GB (since that's the largest HD version of the PS3 that can play all the of the older games), but it is funky that we have to work around these issues like this.

I don't think I'd even care about the backward compatibility if they just updated their emulator library they do for the PSN to include some smaller titles like Rule of Rose.

Updating my thoughts on this matter, 2015 will be the year of videogamers the rooster of titles blows anyone mind, xboxone in pros is having less problems loading up levels apparently, in cons it has less titles to be due in 2015 which might make a tipping point, ps4 pros are the titles really (let's hope with less glitches than ubisoft) the cons is that the network is paid and for now shitty, meaning buying patches and more patches (also expect some severe loading times for now in some games)

I'll wait for the price drop to get a ps4 Wink

I recently bought a ps4 and it's pretty cool, but I don't like that you can't use external harddrives with it, essentially rendering it useless as a home media device. The games this year look awesome, though.
