Backwards Capability

Simple "why": WHY DID SONY STOP BACKWARDS CAPABILTY? 

  • I've no idea, but it would be great to have.

  • Cost of extra hardware, format compatibility,  AND money Money MONEY!

  • Backwards compatibility is basically running an emulator on console hardware and it has its own problems. Honestly, if Sony/Nintendo put effort into making official PC emulators to play their older console games on, and sold their games at a discount/let you use your physical games, they would probably tap into a decent market of nostalgic people.

  • I have my original PlayStation collections all the way back to PSX. I don't hat to have 5 consoles sitting on my tv stand. I have an emulator but don't want to connect my PC to the tv every time i want to play. I'm going to buy a an older loaded tower strictly to play classics.
