First I just don't believe in it. I don't want to buy a console that is hampered by running older previous generation of games. If I buy a new console I want new games and not live in the past. IF I want to play older games I would not have bothered to get the new console. Also claiming backwards compatibility I believe is a poor excuse for not having better games ready when launching said system. That goes for EVERYBODY. I remeber when nintendo would intro their systems and you have to get their new games and nobody complained then.
