So as you may know the big buzz around the gaming community is that the PS3 is going on a diet and she will be ready to show off her slim sexy new body some time before Christmas. Not only is she going on a diet, but she’s also going to be cheaper then ever before ($299 you hussy). Despite her new vivacious curves the PS3 seems to be getting a lot of flack for not being backwards compatible (BC). From what I’ve gathered Sony representative John Koller announced that, “It won’t be coming back,” because the PS3 has grown big enough in the market to not need gimmicks like backwards compatibility to sell systems. So my question to you out there in cyber land is why are you so angry about the PS3 not being BC?
From what I’ve read on the net, people want to keep their massive collection of PS2 games and thats fair, but who said you had to throw out your games or your PS2. Is it really so hard to put your PS2 in a box and pull it out to play with when overwhelming nostalgia hits you? Because that’s what I do with my N64 and Genesis. Also, considering that the PS3 is $300 cheaper than its original price tag, don’t you think the BC feature would have made the PS3 Slim more expensive and less slim? As I recall, people have been complaining about the high price of a PS3 since its conception and now that it’s cheaper people still don’t want to buy it because a feature that will make it more expensive isn’t included (Ahhh so irritating). I for one am all for the PS3 Slim and the decision to keep backwards compatibility out of the picture. I can’t wait to get my hands on inFAMOUS, Katamari Forever, and one day in the distant future Kingdom Hearts 3 now that the PS3 is within my budget.
