As a hermit backwards compatibility is never an issue. but I as a late bandwagoner just finished Persona 4 Golden. so naturally I'm not a fan and want to see more.
I notice there are arena games and persona 5 coming. but oh wait.... in 2015 and on last generation systems. "The team don't have the resources to port" - really? these guys that cant just do it afterwards? (soon afterwards).
yet I look at 2014/2015 for the PS4... nothing but more western games that are on my PC. and first party milkage of shallow 10 hour games.
I'm not naive enough to expect PS NOW to have every PS3 game... things like Persona 4 arena will probably fall through the cracks, and all the licensing issues that go with digital/steaming distribution.
They are just examples. there are plenty of other simular situations.
What do you cows do? run with both a PS3 / PS4 hooked up? I'm not dropping £200 on an 8 year old system... its obsurd.
This is the console gaming standard? it seems they do less with each generation.
