    So you are only interested in backward compatibility other than mass performance improvements, the format, what it does etc? I heard somewhere it will not include the chip which enables backward compatibility.

    Another 3/4 years - correction there. Sony stated that each of their consoles would likely have a 10 year life before starting to die out.

    PS3 has another 4 years to go at least before it will start to die.

    backwards compatibility is a non-starter for the ps4. They are changing the architecture again and have abandoned the cell. They figured (and I think correctly) that BC is gimicky and unnecessary as people already own the prior generation consoles, and if they don't, they can pick one up for cheap. I'd rather have reliable hardware and not reinvent YLOD/RLOD on the next generation than have BC convenience.

    By the time the PS4/XBOX 720 comes out you should be ready for a range of improvements, not to be able to play old games on a system designed for much more. Would you rather do something on a screen with 3800+p, or an old game which only supports 720/1080p?

    I agree with everyone else backwards compatibility is not needed & i'm pretty sure the last time I checked Wii can't play 64, SNES & NES games unless it's downloaded
