It's "your" not "you're".
Here's a tip - learn to spell before insulting someone else's intelligence.

You keep writing "cell architecture" but it's not making you're argument sound anymore intelligent. Blah blah blah....You have no idea what Sony has planned and it's obvious.

That cracks me up. It's going to be in super HD, bro.

Nah - I only meant that as a comparison to the current "HD Classics" collections on PS3 - so eveyone will know what I'm talking about.
I know they wont be tinkering with the resolutions.

As you know current PS3 games are designed for the cell architecture, and it really looks like the PS4 is going to be a traditional architecture again. This is going to make backwards compatibility a serious issue.

it really isn't a big deal...just means you have an extra console cluttering up your entertainment center. What it means for me though is that fewer people will jump on board right away (speaking of Sony fans). They will continue to use their PS3s and plow through their backlogs.

PS3 versions are already HD? lol

Why would they remake an HD of and HD game.

Ha ha.
I'll take that bet.
:-)
The PS4 will have Blu-Ray and will not be backwards compatible with PS3. You can quote me on this one.

BTW - I will be extremely happy if it is - overjoyed in fact, but I'm pretty certain they will rather re-release a "PS3 Classics range" of games on the PS4 - and charge for these. (As opposed to letting us run our original PS3 disks on the PS4)

The only way it won't be backwards compatible is if it doesn't have a blu-ray drive.

I just said I will probably be keeping my PC/PS3 combo for awhile and jumping on a console later. I have too many good games to finish plus I use my PS3 as basically as a media hub. lol

We are all aware that the original launch models were backwards compatible - but that is very much a thing of the past - who are you trying to kid?

Sony has not released a single backwards compatible unit (even as an elite/more expensive option) in the past several years - I seriously doubt that they have any intention to suddenly start doing this now.

The PS3 was at launch. I think that pretty much ruins your logic.

I seriously doubt it will be backwards compatible.
The PS3 is not, and I dont see them chaning their policy with the PS4.
Besides, I seriously doubt they will continue with the cell architecture next gen again, which will make backwards compatibility very difficult to acheive anyway.

It will be but then Sony will take it away.

Not really, all they need to do is support USB HDD. Put a nice USB 3.0 port in there, let people connect whatever they want.

Any console that only has an option for 24 GB storage is bound to fail in an increasingly download-driven gaming community.

teh C3LL is so powerful that it actually makes your PS3 forward compatible with all PS4 games.

Why the big fuss about the backwards compatibility? If you want to play ps3 games then play them on a ps3 or wait for them to be either remastered or simulated by Gaikai

MGS Ground Zero will be amazing and once again Kojima will help sell a Sony Console.

I just hope they do their best not to alienate devs with high training costs of their system at launch.

Im not saying the Wii U is a bad console. I will be buying one later on. Nintendo has a thing with making addicting games that are good. Next Gen will be an interesting Gen in consoles because its all about Digital Content and DLC with the VG Industry.
