Honestly, I hope it's NOT. why? Because if it is, it means Sony opted to once again use teh c3ll in the PS4 and that spells trouble for PlayStation fans.

No offense, but I do not want 2 blu-ray players, 2 PS gaming systems, and 2 places to put on my entertainment area. It would be extremely convenient to have it BC.

I don't know if it'll be compatable but it may be compatible... ;P

Seriously though, I don't care one way or another because I'm going to hang on to my PS3 Slim for as long as I can. And, as other people mentioned, there's also PS+ which will most probably bring us "upgraded" version of various PS3 games, so it's all good.

Oh Sorry, I forgot that were supposed to throw our PS3's away when the PS4 comes out. You know since we buy new Systems to play the old games on it!

I do not. I think Sony views backwards compatibility as of limited value to the consumer, and not something that's worth raising the price for.

I mean, would you pay $100 more for a PSQuatro if it played PS3 games? I wouldn't.

I just hope they step up support for 3rd party and indie like Nintendo has.

Really? Seriously. Calm down, Nintendo just started getting Strong 3rd party support.

I'm not mad? Nintendo has done far more than just get a few devs backing them. They've been licensing and working with many studios.

No, not really. It wont make them go Bankrupt. They need to worry about making awesome games.

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.

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

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

Exactly

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

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

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

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.

It will be but then Sony will take it away.

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.

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

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.
