BLOPS II got back in the top 10 due to Xone backwards comparability... amazing.

Backwards compatibility is meaningful.

PS5 simply HAS to support PS4. It HAS to.

I think it will matter this time around. Ecosystems are established and digital is huge

It will matter this time, GaaS userbase and publishers will demand it.

I want to say it will, but I think only in NA/UK, if that, given that MS seems to be doing nothing in other markets.

It's one thing to not have the feature, it's another to not have it but not face any competition. I still don't buy it as a selling point.

I'm talking about BC in general. Sony really needs to ensure it's there in PS5. Only the most die hard Sony fans will accept it's absence.

Only most diehard Sony fans plus console folk in every country that MS has made no attempt in. I think your overstating BC as a feature.

Well MS having it will put serious pressure on Sony to deliver BC as well.

In a digital world, BC is no longer a feature. It should now be standard.

I'm not talking about standards. I'm talking about the impact on the larger market and sales.

Sony could exclude the feature and not suffer any consequences in a variety of regions by virtue of competition.

They will suffer though, probably they'll keep being #1 but hardware sales will suffer because many will not upgrade to next-gen PS5.

FYI, I do agree with you on it being standardized. But sales and things that are good for gamers rarely overlap.

Not when their favorite GaaS games aren't supported in PS5.

I wasn't referring to sales. I was just speaking generally. Having said that, I think it could hurt them as you sad in US/UK/AU for sure.
