Next Gen Gaming(Xbox Juan80, Wii U in crisis and PS4 outselling both)

The only controllers compatible with multiple PS systems seem to be the PS1 and PS2 controllers and that's it.
#152 Posted by TAMKFan (32732 posts) -

Well, you can use the PS1 controllers on the PS2. I don't think that's vice versa though.

#153 Posted by Noteldnep (20166 posts) -
I thought it might be, then again I might not have ever tried to use a PS2 controller on a PS1.
#154 Posted by TAMKFan (32732 posts) -

I actually haven't tried it either, but I'm assuming you can't.

It would be cool if you could use the PS3 controller on the PS4, but that's doubtful. 

TAMKFan

Yep, no chance of that, ever.



That's no surprise. I don't see why they couldn't allow that though. It's more convenient to give people more controller choices. 

Sony isn't even trying to get the old to work with the new.

Sony's just trying to completely throw out the old and only go with the new? How very disappointing of you Sony.

All companies do that, though it seems Wii U may have the best console BC this gen.
#159 Posted by TAMKFan (32732 posts) -

Yeah, at least with the Wii U, you can use the Wii Remote and with the Wii, you can use a GameCube controller.

#160 Posted by mitu123 (153911 posts) -

TAMKFan
True. Which is why I said it has the best BC this gen, for games and controllers even. Not even 720 will use 360 controllers.
#161 Posted by TAMKFan (32732 posts) -

It would be even better if you could use the GameCube controller for all Wii games. But oh well, I don't mind the Wii remote anyway.

#162 Posted by Noteldnep (20166 posts) -

Yeah, at least with the Wii U, you can use the Wii Remote and with the Wii, you can use a GameCube controller.

TAMKFan
That's what I like most about the Wii, you can still play your GameCube games on it.

It looks like Nintendo is the only one who decided to keep the backwards compatibility. Even the 3DS can play DS games and the Wii U can play Wii games. But I still plan to keep the older consoles anyway.

#165 Posted by Noteldnep (20166 posts) -
I plan to wait before getting any of the newer consoles, no need for me to rush when I still have plenty of games on the PS3 and Wii I still have not played. My backlog is getting ridiculous. :P

While there's plenty of old games I still have fun playing, like Paper Mario 64.

I still enjoy NASCAR Thunder 2003 (10 years later, it is still the best NASCAR game made) and Mario Bros. as well.

Yeah, I still don't have a Wii U yet, but I might get one later this year.

Can you wait until November?

Nope :(

Oh don't be that way, you can wait. :P
#172 Posted by Toph_Girl250 (47572 posts) -
While the PS4 comes out I still will be probably hacking away at some old game of sorts.
#173 Posted by TAMKFan (32732 posts) -

I'll still probably be playing my PS3 a lot for a while.

Same here, I know for sure right now that 2015 will be the earliest I'm getting a PS4.

Maybe I'll get one in 2014. After all, it's launch price will supposedly be cheaper than the PS3 was then.

Backwards compatibility.

Depending on the games I get for the PS4 I may end up moving to the PS4 and play the PS3 less.

Advanced physics controlled by the cpu or gpu.

While you're answering questions, here's more: What does CPU and GPU stand for? :PToph_Girl250
"Stands for "Graphics Processing Unit." Like the CPU (Central Processing Unit), it is a single-chip processor. However, the GPU is used primarily for computing 3D functions. This includes things such as lighting effects, object transformations, and 3D motion. Because these types of calculations are rather taxing on the CPU, the GPU can help the computer run more effienciently." "Stands for "Central Processing Unit." This is the pretty much the brain of your computer. It processes everything from basic instructions to complex functions. Any time something needs to be computed, it gets sent to the CPU. Every day, it's compute this, compute that -- you'd think the CPU would need a break after awhile. But no -- it just keeps on processing. The CPU can also be referred to simply as the "processor."

So the next X Box might have advanced physX for the CPU and GPU? What happens when the CPU and GPU have advanced PhysX? O_o

I'm guessing 4-8GB RAM.

I agree with that. I never been a big fan of the Xbox.

I've thought this for a long time. I'm just more comfortable with its controls and general online gaming.
