Oh, and considering Microsoft just completely 180'd their original plans for the Xbox One, fuck you, Nucks.

<3
How is that fuck me? For one, I in no way stated they WOULDN'T backtrack, I was going with their statement that this was how they were planning to go forward. They went back on it, which is excellent news. But I have to buy a Wii and a PS3 for their exclusives before I move up to a new console, I decided. I've only played SSB: Brawl, Mario Kart Wii and New Mario Bros once; and the Mario Galaxy and LoZ: Skyward Sword games not at all. Also, I've yet to play anything in Metal Gear since PS1, none of the Uncharted's or The Last of Us, which I've decided is a MUST play.

Add in to that my retro RPG collection and I'm a busy man for some time before I'll want a next gen console.

Or you can buy a PS4 when it becomes time, because it will be backwards compatible to the PS3

Just sayin'

Will it? I was given to understand neither PS4 or XBox One would be Backwards compatible...If that's true, that may be an option.

PS4 won't be PHYSICALLY compatible with PS3 but they're going to have some form of digital capabilities to play PS games from ANY generation on PS4, unless I missed something at E4. That seemed like a particularly fruitful fuck you they lobbed at Microsoft

You're right Goob. The purchase of Gankai or whatever that Streaming game service will serve it, I believe. I'd speculate it works by reading what game you put in, then streams it off the servers, since the hardware will be incompatible. But I think I remember hearing that this feature won't be available right away, might be working out the kinks still.

Sounds awesome though, I think when it does come time to upgrade, PS4 will likely be my choice. First time in any generation (since Sony's had consoles on the market) that I picked Sony's offering as my first choice. Wii U (and Wii in last gen) seems like more of a secondary console to own, as it just doesn't stack to its competitors, so it's been down to PS and X-Box since the last gen anyway.

Being able to download past titles =/= backwards compatibility.

It's akin to it, it'd save you the money of buying a virtual version and giving it to you based on your purchase of a physical copy. And B-Wards compatibility is not a make or break in my purchase by any means.
