i don't think its will come true but i will wait until sony tells us.

i'm sure ubisoft does not know what sony is planning. they will not know if sony in house is working on something to make it happen.

like i said though i don't think its going to happen just saying.

I buy next gen to play next gen. If I want to play some retro stuff I just bust out my retro console and games.

I’ll wait for Sony to say something on the matter. Not terribly surprising to me if true but it would be very unfortunate.

How is it unfortunate? The PS4 sold over 120 million units outselling XB1 3:1 and had no BC and XB1 had a ton of BC

PS vita had a ton of BC for ps1 ps2 and ps3 games and didn't sell at all. BC isn't just a big seller to people it seems.

If it does end up not having PS1/2/3 support, i cant wait for the excuses from Sony(and its fanboys) for not to atleast support PS1/2 games.

Clearly you know more about sales than actually playing games.

@ProtossRushX: I know this is hard for you to understand because you have your head firmly up Sony's ar*e 24/7, but having BC is a consumer friendly service for owners of that console. It's a good thing to have.

But as we already know, Sony/PS isn't the most consumer friendly company. But I guess you can't blame them, when fanboys like you make excuses for them and say the anti-consumer behavior is ok.

But you said you are a collector and still wanted a a ps4 to play ps4 games even when the ps5 could play all ps4 games already making the system obsolete.

@ProtossRushX: Yep. I do want a PS4 system in my collection. I’m not planning on getting a PS5 for awhile though so I’ll use the PS4 to play some of the games from this gen until I get the PS5.

I figure if they had it, Sony would have said it already. Only games I still own are ps4 games, so as long as that's covered, I'm covered.

But if you care about BC why wouldn't just play ps4 games BC on aPS5 instead of having to buy both? That doesn't make any sense.

I understand issues with PS3 BC, but PS1/PS2 emulation is doable. I imagine challenges there could be more legal than technical.

They clearly want people to adopt PS Now, in ways withholding BC forces this. They are acting just like Nintendo with their Switch VC, in withholding opportunity to buy, and reneging on the previous digital purchases of their users on past systems.

They are capable though, it would take time to get to a better place, MS started years ago on XB1 and has been focused on BC since. Sony is making late attempt and is now realizing it takes work to get there.

You think with all the great work a Sony did building its digital BC library on PS3 that to bring it over to PS4, honor user rights, build further off that, that could have been something great. The uncontested success of the PS4 brought arrogant Sony back. And I don't expect them to grow from this oversight without being compelled to.

@ProtossRushX: Because I’m a collector and want the system in my collection. I’m not planning on getting a PS5 for awhile. I care about backwards compatibility because it makes things easier to play a classic game whenever the mood strikes me but I still enjoy having certain things in my gaming collection. 🤷‍♂️

Sucks for those who want that. Can't tell from the wording if it's a Sony thing or a Ubisoft thing.

right what excuses do we need? we don't need one because we don't care. some us might but its not going to get someone not to buy the ps5.

you think someone saying im not buying the ps 5 because it won't play ps1 games or ps2 or ps3?

ps4 is enough to satisfy 95% of the ps4 owners to buy a ps5.

psp107 you think the reason xbox fans buys series x is to play old games?

Not much of a negative. All i want is a few current gen games in 60fps+ and possibly better graphical settings.

PS4 and PS5 both use the same AMD x86-64 architecture. PS3 uses an entirely different Cell architecture. This means the PS5 can have native compatibility with PS4 games, but not PS3 games, which would need to be emulated.

I currently don't plan on buying a PS5, but if it was BC with all their previous consoles I definitely would.

I bought a XBX earlier this year, literally just to play old games.

You guys looking at it like "we don't need this to win!" is weird af lol. Corporate slave mentality.

Having access to more games is always a good thing.

You may not personally care and that's absolutely fine, it's just a weird thing to defend. Especially knowing how some of you guys would rush to put it on the list of talking points if full BC were announced.

i wouldn't throw it in xbox fans face if it was.

ps5 does not need to play ps1-4 for it to win any console race. its needs next gen games to win period.

More profitable for Sony this way, which should please the fanboys.

We can at least still play our PS1 and 2 classics we bought on PSN, right? ....right?

Definitely not shocked. It would have been nice, but PSNow exists, and something tells me they'd rather push that due to the monthly charge.

I simply reported an article posted today on the very site this forum lives. If anyone is claiming it was rumored to be the case and its news that its not its GAMESPOT.

not me.
