It would be incredible if Nintendo and Sony made collector models that played all the games they've made including Japan only, beta version, limited edition ect titles. I would buy them both in a heart beat. Even if i had to buy 2 systems for Nintendo since there's cartridges and discs. Old systems break down unless you never play them, I would want to be prepared for that. And other 3rd party systems out there aren't very reliable or naturally just don't have the ability to design something the way the people who originally released the games could. It would benefit software and hardware developers deeply, as well as making hardcore gamers out of mainstream gamers and give a lot more attention to great games that or in deep need of sequels and reboots. The idea would do so well that even a Sega model would guaranteed be successful.
I'd buy a luxury model of the PS4 that has all the backwards compatibility built in. I'd pay the combined cost of all the previous systems for the dang thing... just to have one big ol' box of PS gaming sitting under my TV. it really is just a great idea.
Yes 21st century means that if all the the people speaking happen to be men, you imply sexism and that there should be a quota. Grow up Bob, there's nothing wrong with an all male announcement.
I wonder why there are so many comments about this... I'd LIKE to think it's something OTHER than console fanboy rage, so let's see what Bob said...
I guess it COULD be interpreted as Bob being biased, buy honestly, given how OTHER gamers, such as Jim Sterling, Yahtzee, Extra Credits, etc. have reacted to the PS3, it's not all that different. So why this here?
Or maybe people who know SO much more about technology and hardware are calling him out and saying he's an idiot. It's made clear before that he's not a computer guy, cut him some slack, people.
Oh gosh, I haven't seen Bob get this ranty since the Green Lantern movie... or any given American Bob video. I love it! Probably my new favorite video of your's Bob!
I think he just meant preserving games in general, which is already being done. It will be impossible to officially preserve every game because of the copyright messes that come with it, and dealing with defunct companies such as Acclaim,THQ and such.
For the older generation of games you don't even need a expensive computer to run up to Wii games. A cheap $300 emachines computer can run Wii games even using the official discs (I have done it personally, it's not that hard).
I miss allot of things from my childhood since Bob and I are about the same age. But to say games will be lost forever, is wrong and needs to be called out.
There are people preserving prototype games such as Socks the Cat Rocks the Hill,Bioforce Ape, California Rasins and more despite them never being released. People are doing work the companies won't do themselves, so it's not like the movie industry of old at all. Super Mario is going to around with or without Nintendo.
You can screw off.
I have been gaming just as long as Bob has, and I know the industry allot better than he pretends to.
Every time he posts a new video he is full of crap 98% of the time. Like the newest one saying that noone was excited about the PS4 when that is complete opposite of what happened. Go look up PS4 on youtube and you will see tons of videos about the buzz it created. Yahoo had a major story on it when it was announced and the comment section was filled with cheers about it being easier to make games for, and having allot of RAM for developers to work with.
Bob is just another butt hurt Nintendo fanboy that can't take the fact that Nintendo's Wii U is a flop and publishers are dropping it as fast as they did with the Dreamcast.
He has made other errors saying Nintendo was flushed with case thanks to the Wii when again that is opposite of the truth, Nintendo was taking a loss in the last fiscal period, the FIRST TIME SINCE THEY ENTERED THE GAMING INDUSTRY. They are losing fans left and right because Nintendo's sutbborness for even making games that appeal to them. They are trying to rely on gimmicks that don't work. For the tablet controller to sell the system like they though it would, it was 2 years TOO LATE. The Wii U SHOULD HAVE BEEN the Wii.
But as always the butt hurt Nintendo fans continue to lick Nintendo's balls even when they are covered in shit.
So you can fuck off, I am not going anywhere. Don't you ever tell me what to do, think or comment ever again.
agreed 100%. i didn't have a ps3 this generation because i could only afford one console so i got an Xbox earlier in the generation but now it looks like the ps3 has a better overall library so i thought next generation since i can still only afford one console I'd go ps4 so i could play the ps3 games i missed but then they said no backwards compatibility so i said fuck this shit I'm getting a gaming PC those are infinitely backwards compatible pretty much.
How am I making claims that I can't back up? If anything, Microsoft really does have a sizeable challenge posed by Sony in this regard. I mean sure, the reveal may have felt underwhelming in some aspects (Social media stuff), but in other aspects, it was really, really amazing (Game announcements, Huge Developer support, the potential in Playstation Cloud).
If anything, Microsoft may need to start taking notes, especially when Playstation went from being hard as fuck to develop for to being quite possibly the easiest to develop for.
Yes, you can postulate on how Microsoft can do better. But will they actually do the things you say they should in order to one-up the PS4? Lets wait and see. No use in pre-empting results that haven't happened.
I'm just talking from the standpoint of someone who doesn't see the point in the whole "Console Life Cycles must be 5 years" view. It's nice to have hardware around longer, so at the very least, PS4 seems better positioned than PS3 in that regard, due to being developer friendly and because DDR5 RAM isn't out on the market yet.
Read the news. Kind of sucks. I get the feeling they want you to buy the stuff off of the Classics portion of the PS Store more than ever now.
The PS Certified devices thing was something not really taken into too much depth. And considering that they're making Iphone and Android apps for the PS4, I wouldn't be surprised if they did make it possible to use the service on other devices. Unless the service is tied to some kind of proprietary hardware.
The thing though it that Sony confirmed that the ps4 won't play cd's for some reason, and every ps1 games are pretty much on cd's.
Probably the best video you ever made. This is something i completely agree with.
I was thinking the same.
Somebody has to get this to Sony, they HAVE TO
Love the zelda poster in the background...and great video chipman :)
I agree with your sentiments exactly, Mr. Chipman.
Keep the great content rolling, sir!

Thank you. I'm glad to see that some gamers understand how backwards compatibility works. Everyone whines like a baby over it yet when they do put it in the system and raise the price to make up for it, everyone whines again. If people really wanted backwards compatibility, they would have brought the 60 gb PS3 when it first came out. $600 price tag and all. The fact of the matter is that No one even bothered to touch the PS3, until Sony took the feature out which allowed them to lower the prices. Gamers want to have their cake and eat it too, and the real world just doesn't work that way. If they really want backwards compatibility, they have be ready to cough up the extra money for it. I'm proud to say that I brought the original 60gb PS3 when it first came out. Bob said that he knew that he wouldn't be alone if they raised the price to $600 with BC put into it. Yet the sales numbers for the PS3 during its early years says that "yeah Bob, you would be very alone in this type of thinking, otherwise the PS3 would have been a Juggernaut during its release." Now I will say I do agree with Bob about one thing in that I would like to see two different versions sell. One with BC that's a little more expensive and one that's cheaper with no BC at all.
