    Your comment about Nintendo making a useless move to bring ds games to the wii U contradicts your comment about Sony making a brilliant move to make the ps4 backwards compatible. Sony must be paying you because that was the most biased report I've ever seen

    Who needs to keep up to date with anything when I can continue to come here and get all that I need with all the crap taken out. Oh I do hope that the Sony rumour turns into the Sony reality. I have a stack of PS2/PS1 games I would love to have a go round with on a backwards compatible system. Fingers crossed.
