Forward Ever: Sony Says No To Backward Compatibility For PS4

share on:

Sony will not be following in Microsoft’s footsteps.

Microsoft had announced that they’d developed a special Xbox 360 emulator, making some Xbox 360 games playable on the Xbox One.

Commenting on that, Sony’s Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida said he was surprised, and that PS4 users shouldn’t expect it.

“It was surprising. I didn’t think it was possible. There must be lots of engineering effort.”

Microsoft has planned to make the support available for over 100 games, asking users to nominate which titles they want supported.

“They talked about 100 games, but what kind of games will be included? Is it smaller games or big games? We don’t know,” Yoshida said.

“PS3 is such a unique architecture, and some games made use of SPUs very well,” Yoshida added. “It’s going to be super challenging to do so. I never say never, but we have no plans.”
