Hope Defiance makes the cut or everyone playing has to remain on the old console.

Just don't sell off your ps3... as for me I doubt I would anyways.

i have a playstation 1 in the attic along with N64 and original nintendo and sega consoles.... never understood why people would get rid of perfectly good classic systems.

especially since the PS3 has free internet.... so you get the new system for new games and keep the old for a few classic games + Defiance.

I have kept all my consoles back to Atari (although Katrina took it). After that though I have at least one console of all. After me and the wife got married we ended up with lot of systems and games, and for some unexplicable reason about 40 N64 controllers still trying to figure that one out...

Just seems like at least a few would want the new better performance of the PS4 with that sexy 8gb of GDDR5 and AMD Jaguar processor.

the Z button doesnt work on 4 of them, the right bumper on another 3, the left on 2 and the center joystick would get hung up on a few others.... sound like familiar N64 controller problems?

Now that you metion it...

In fact I just started my oldest daughter on the gaming path by making her start out with some original DK and Regular Mario Bros. She has to beat each game to progress to the others she is on SuperNintento now :)

Also by the way in case anyone hasn't seen the processor story it is here:

Didn't notice it on the regular stories from game informer.

Nope never had one.. had an atari, then a nintendo, then a SEGA genesis, Then a PS, PS2, PS3... eventually PS4 as well I would imagine.. will see when it comes out and what games are going to be coming out for it and what kind of motion control it would have.

Kinda sad that the best controllers were all from the atari...
