Poll Results: Are You Excited For the PlayStation 4?

February 25, 2013 -

Last week we asked you to categorize your level of excitement for the PlayStation 4 - prior to all the details coming out of Sony's two-hour long press event. Exactly 504 votes were cast, with those of you looking for more information being beat out slightly by those who didn't seem to be interested in what Sony has planned with its next-generation console.

At least 18 percent (92 votes) said "Heck yeah!" to the prospect of hearing more about the PlayStation 4, while 40 percent (201 votes) of you said that "I’m intrigued but Sony needs to show me more." But 42 percent of the vote (211 votes) said that they "couldn’t care less."

Thanks to everyone who voted in last week's poll. It is highly likely that those who had a chance to take in all the information on the new PlayStation console still feel like "the jury is out." At least Sony said that they would not require PS4 users to have an "always on" connection and that it had no plans to block used games. On the other hand, Sony revealed that the PS4 won't be able to play PS3 games or even the PS3 games you might have purchased in the PlayStation Store...

Sony is wasting real opportunity here with backwards compatibility. Players have invested a lot in their prior console libraries, it is an economic boon to the player if they can take it forward to the next console. Imagine if you could pop in your favorite PS1 disc and the developer has issued an HD patch that will let the game run in 1080p with correctly functioning texture smoothing (UI doesn't get blurred) and anti-aliasing. Including support for prior purchases means that players are incentivised to stick with the PlayStation platform if they know their games will always work with what is next.

When backwards compatibility was dropped from the PS3 I lost all interest in getting one if I could not take my PS2 library with me.

Then don't trade in your PS2 or PS3. Problem solved.

Sadly when my PS3 fell back into a stationary position as a Media player only, and ousted by an Apple TV from that into a straight up Blu-Ray/DVD player.... i lost interest :(

I want to love it, i've tried to love it, but i can't find many games that "I" like on it, and fewer people i know that have it :(

So the PS4 for me is pretty much a waiting game, till i can find a reason I want it, I'm not gonna worry about it.

On the PS3 front though my controller, despite its rare use, has recently gone FUBAR and though it claims a charge (dock says its 100% and it should be), won't turn on unless plugged in, and won't sync unless its plugged directly into the console... anyone know a fix for this?
