But the PS3 didn't have "a Cell", but 8 parallel cell processors. In order for games to work natively, they would have to include the entire board.Rayansaki said:It's pretty much impossible, but they could pretty easily have backwards compatibility by simply having the Cell as a secondary processor, but that would've made the console more expensive.BX3 said:Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't PS3 emulation for the PS4, like, impossible (or at least really really hard) because of architectural reasons?
Not relieving Sony from blame or anything - creating a console with insides that are relatively bonkers probably wasn't the best choice - But it's not really something they can help now, and PSNow seems like a reasonable enough alternative.
On the other hand, I don't think the bone has that much of an excuse.
Capcha: Brand Lift. Oh, fuck you, solve media. I'm not being biased, I'm being observational.
Then again how much more expensive would it be really? They could've even made 2 different versions of the console, one cheaper without BC and one more expensive with.
It was different with the PS2/PS3 compatibility, where the required component was a 40$ worth chip.
