EA: Next-Gen Consoles Probably Won't Be Backwards Compatible

Posted on Wednesday, February 13 @ 08:48:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn

Just as you all feared, there's a good chance that the next Xbox and PlayStation won't be backwards compatible.

Blake Jorgensen, EA's chief financial officer, discussed the probability of this reality at a Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference Q&A session, saying, "An important thing to remember is that next-gen consoles will most likely not be backwards compatible. If you [play] multiplayer on a game, you'll most likely not be able to play with someone on a different generation."

Is backwards compatibility an important function to you? Which do you find more important, digital or physical backwards compatibility? It will be very interesting to see how everything pans out when Microsoft and Sony finally do reveal their next-gen hardware. In the meantime, let us know what you think about all of this in the comments below.
