There are a few things that, at least, are looking really bad, like no used games, no discs (xbox), cheap price but a mandatory 2 year contract (!). Despite my interest in either console, those points are pretty much killing it for me
why the sad face?
its all rumors take all of them with a grain of salt including Wii u rumors .
No Used Games
No Backwards Compatability (Even for Downloadable Games)
Those are REALLY bad, anti-consumer measures. Anti-Used games is a Microsoft rumor while no BC is a Sony rumor. They are terrible ideas that will harm the future of the industry.
I don't see anyone going no disc for the next 20 years or so. especially with the way online infrastructure is in the US. and the only company I could see doing no BC for downloadable titles (aside from things like, digital versions of retail titles) is nintendo. however, I think this is probably the last generation where we will see a architecture shift. So we should be good for BC for everything going forward, as long as the companies keep their account systems active.
