I am looking forward to the actual console reveal. Sony has yet to announce when that actually will be happening. With any new console backward compatibility is always an issue. Sony is hard at work to make sure that most if not all PlayStation 4 games will be playable on the console.

Right now we just have to wait until the actual console is revealed. When that happens we will have it covered on ticgamesnetwork.com
