So im very reluctant to purchase a Playsation 4 console due to its lack of real backwards compatibility. Im sure alot of other people are too. I Have 113 Playstation And Playstation 2 Games and if i purchased a Ps4 console i wouldnt be able to play any of these games. The only other alternative is "Classics" which is ps2 games only which you have to pay for again... So whats the reasoning for this ? Money ? Cant Be Bothered ? Also before anyone says " Hardware Limitations" Thats utter rubbish the Ps4 can perfectly well play Ps2 games as shown in this "Classics" also the bluray reader can read dvd's and cd's So Ps2 And 1 Ha "For The Players" what utter rubbish if you really knew what the players wanted you would listen "Crash Bandicoot" "Spyro The Dragon" "Full Backwards Compatibility"

What do you play your 113 PlayStation and PlayStation 2 games on now? And how would buying a PlayStation 4 stop you from whatever method you do use to play them?

If you can't aford to jump to a PS4 without selling up your previous consoles and it'll cause you an issue doing the jump.... just wait longer and save up. @Wess_The_Hunter

Dunno, it's big enough to sit on while you play them

 

Seriously Wess, if you have your PS2 like you say then keep it and use it alongside your newer consoles

I'd have it if it were offered but it wasn't a major decision in me buying the ps4. I bought the ps4 to play current games on, not old games. Plus the classics you can now buy offer true upscaling for flat screen tv's and trophy support. So you are getting a better experience than just the game you have on the old discs.

@Wess_The_Hunter Pretty much what has been said above. I skipped the ps2 for Xbox so when PS3 was released I picked up the model on release with backward compatibility and I played a sum total of 2 ps2 games.

It might not be a major issue for most ppl here but there's also absolutely no reason why they haven't made all the old PS1 games available on the store. PS2 could be more of an issue because they'd look pretty shoddy by comparison and wouldn't all work well visually on newer/higher end TVs without tweaking they either don't have the license for or are willing to spend the funds on. PS3 emulation is a whole other issue with hardware problems so I get why that won;t happen anytime soon/at all but there's no reason not to allow all PS1 games and at minimum a list of compatible PS2 games or to release them on the store for the ppl that already purchased them. If you;re not going to re-release/remaster them, give us the originals-they're only going to make more money with more games available in the store.

There sure is no reason not to, so thats why i say ***** you PlayStation ! Im emulating your games on my Pc. You have only lost money by not adding full backwards compatibility as a basic feature IF IT WORKED OR NOT. and that is pretty much the reason why i would not touch any PlayStation for any price. Oh and its community is filled with a-load of aggressive ***** *****.
