    Seriously missing the PS3 is missing the point. Doubt many PS4 owners would care to play many PS2 games. Thankfully PC doesn't have all these restrictions.

    but they have always said, the cell-processor(ps3) was such a different architecture that it can not be done... (as of yet).. so i think they just need to do something to compete with MS backwards compatibility.

    im sure they furiously trying to find a way to wrap ps3 games or trying to steal whatever tech to help them figure it out from MS. i think in 1.2-2yrs time they might crack it.. if not, then never with the existing ps4 console.
    IMHO

    They have playstation now which is a monthly subscription to play a huge list of PS3 games. I can't see them making them backwards compatible if they are still making money from them

    The remasters tend to be a better option than playing the originals anyway.

    Final fantasy 12 and gran turismo 4 would both be worth playing.

    Ridge racer 5 is probably still the best arcade racer ever made.

    FF12 needs to be remastered in the same way as the other final fantasy games, not sure 4 is necessary when 6 exists but if 4 was remaster in 1080/60 it would be better for it, wouldn't want to play it blocko vision on a modern big LCD TV, it would ruin the memory of its awesomeness.
