Tell GR: Is Backwards Compatibility Really That Important?
Posted on Tuesday, March 5 @ 18:00:00 PST by Alex_Osborn
As 2013 ushers in a host of new gaming consoles, one of the many questions that has been on gamers' minds is whether or not the new machines would be backwards compatible. Sony has already answered that on the PlayStation side of things with a big fat NO, but we still have yet to hear from Microsoft on its next-gen plans.
In an ideal world, you'd be able to play whatever you want, whenever you want, on whatever device you want, but alas, we're not living in a fairy tale. That said, a lot of gamers don't like clutter and would rather not have a mess of consoles crammed below their TV. And seriously, who wants to unpack and plug in a console every time they want to play an older game?
If you'd like to hear my thoughts on backwards compatibility, be sure to give the video above a look. More importantly, however, we want to here from you, so please answer the following question in the comments below.
