    Now in theaters:
    'No PS1/2/3 backwards compatibility'

    From the people who brought you 'PS1 with an open-source emulator'.

    i don't think ps2 is fit for the classic treatment, if you look at the best selling ps2 games (what one would expect from a classic system) it's mostly JRPGs and GTA, games that don't have the "play for an hour, then forget about it" feel of a classic system, though they most likely will remaster and remake so you have to buy again

    That's actually wrong. This was shown before the first game (FF16), but after that, there was another disclaimer saying that from then on, everything was captured from the PS5.

    Yeah, I don't know actually how is it possible to miss the big banner after FF16 that stated "All cinematic and gameplay footage you are about to see from this point forward in the show has been captured from PlayStation 5 systems." that plays at 5:32 in the showcase.

    I for one would love the God of War games, just so I could play them all on one console, without the hassle of connecting multiple consoles to one TV and all that. That's it.
    Sorry...many of you will disagree, I'm sure, but can't help it... I just love this franchise with or without their flaws. Yes, even Ascension, so come @ me. :lol: :rofl2:
    RDR would be a nice addition as well and the first inFamous series. The other ones were re-released for the PS4, so there's that...
    That's pretty much it...At least I don't really remember other ones.

    This was one of the primary reasons why I held on to my PS3's as the PS4 hit the shelves - all you really need is one HDMI-enabled machine and you have access to all of the PS1-3 library. The 5 fills the gap for 4-5, which is plenty.

    Well that was a console with DVD disc, so they had a lot more data for larger scale games. But then again, didn't stop them from having Final fantasy 7 or Metal gear solid on the psone classic. (least it wasn't legend of dragoon)

    Of course I was joking though, they probably wouldn't be able to find a acceptable open source emulator to make a ps2 classic with... that would cost less than a real console to buy. :P

    99% of PS4 games? So, what's the 1% that doesn't work?

    You people are seriously complaining about this?.. Even if it did play PS1-3, there would be at least something about it that would make it less authentic than playing it on the original consoles.

    I am not really complaining about this, but in the other hand I couldn't care less about the """authentic feeling of playing it on the original consoles""" to be honest, I couldn't miss any less listening the loud seeking noise of a PS1 drive or having to delete save files to fit something else in a memory card... is that part of the authenticity I am missing?

    I have a feeling that they're saying that to cover themselves in the event of any unexpected compatibility issues. That, and some games required accessories by third-parties that may or may not work as intended on the 5, although I don't see why they wouldn't.

    most likely they cant be bothered to test every game so they say this just in case, just look at the original gameboy, it has two games only playable on the DMG, due to hardware quirks, no revision will play them

    Perhaps, but that's not what was sold to us. :P

    I can also say the same for "Thall who should not be named" (devil may cry 2) But once again, we got two disc. Guess it's just more "Special" that way. Least people remember it more too. (I'm still talking about how mega man legacy collection is two disc, didn't have to be.) :ninja:

    definitely, same with dead or alive ultimate for xbox, both discs are 99.99% the same, it's just that the text telling the xbox which program on a disc to load is different

    This is something they could have done easily if they wanted to. It's just that they don't. And that's a shame for gamers that really enjoy playing the classics of their childhood/teens. I honestly think they are trying to create a new niche here and to sell exclusively games from the past 7 years that are worth more money. Hence the 99% compatibility with PS4 games, that can be sold for more than any PS3, PS2 or PSX games. It's all about profit, my friends! :teach:

    But with the hacking/homebrew scene growing so fast nowadays, I'm sure there will be unofficial means to play games from the excluded consoles via emulation. :D

    Sony seeing that PSN titles PS1, PS2 and PS3 are selling very poorly, they decided to ignore those platforms.

    Even on PS4 they never really cared to bring PS1 titles, although they have near perfect PS1 emulator found in Medievil game.
