Sony heeft naar buiten gebracht dat het niet bezig is om Playstation 3 games speelbaar te maken op de Playstation 4.
“Unfortunately there are just not sufficent enough software engineers in the world for everyone to do everything. Each platform holder has to make their choices, we made one and they made another. Their choice is entirely legitimate, and I think our choice is legitimate, too. In some ways it is quite nice to have points of difference between the two platforms, and people will decide which approach suits them best”
Sony gaat er ook van uit dat er niet veel vraag naar is.
“We have experience of backwards compatibility. The earliest PS3 model was backwards compatible with PS2, and it is a much requested feature… but actually it’s not so greatly used”
