The PlayStation 4 will not be backwards compatible.
Got a bunch of PS3, PS2, or PS1 games? Too bad, bucko! You won't be able to play them on the PS4 when it launches this fall. Oh, you can probably jam those disks into the console but that's about as far as you're going to get. Heck, all those PSN titles you bought? Nope, not going to be able to play those either.
How does that make you feel?
Well, it just so happens we have a conveniently timed poll in which you can let your opinion be known. What's that you say? Your opinion is more nuanced than the poll responses allow?
Well nuts, that's a problem. Hmm, what can we do about that?
Oh, I know! Expound your thoughts either in the below comments section or in an email to SuperPACpodcast@gmail.com. Or both! We're not picky.
Let us know how important backwards compatibility is to you and how it might color your decision to pick up Sony's next gen box. We'll discuss your thoughts and ours on next week's podcast.
