Sony rules out PS4 backwards compatibiliy
UPDATE: PS4 backwards compatibility may have been ruled out by Sony, but Microsoft believes it's what gamers want.
Responding to Sony's comments about backwards compatibility, Microsoft's Mike Ybarra said that he disagreed.
"Disagree. We want gamers to play the best games of the past, current, and future. It's what gamers have asked for," he told Twitter followers.
ORIGINAL: Sony has absolutely no plans to bring backwards compatibility to PS4.
Fans hoping for an Xbox One-style backwards compatibility reveal at E3 2017 will be disappointed to hear Sony's latest comments.
Despite the popularity of the feature on Xbox One, Sony's Jim Ryan wonders why anybody would want to play old games on new consoles.
"When we’ve dabbled with backwards compatibility, I can say it is one of those features that is much requested, but not actually used much," he told Time.
"That, and I was at a Gran Turismo event recently where they had PS1, PS2, PS3 and PS4 games, and the PS1 and the PS2 games, they looked ancient, like why would anybody play this?"
Elsewhere, it was revealed that PSVR has sold more than 1 million units and that PS4 sales are closing in on 60 million.

Fans should find out more during Sony's E3 conference, which will take place at 2am UK time on June 13. That's 6pm PDT on June 12 for US viewers.
The company is expected to debut a new Last of Us 2 trailer, as well as new God of War, Spider-Man and Uncharted 4: The Lost Legacy gameplay.
Fans can also expect some brand new game announcements, and perhaps third-party footage from Call of Duty WW2 and Destiny 2.
Sony may also officially unveil the rumoured Gold PS4 console.
Some people have also suggested that the Sony PlayStation 4 E3 2017 showcase could feature a big surprise from the team behind Dark Souls.
A Bloodborne 2 announcement has been predicted ahead of E3 2017.
Commenting on a NeoGAF thread, entitled “Do you think we’ll see Bloodborne 2 at E3?” Moon Studios’ Thomas Mahler left a pretty interesting reply. “I'm 99% certain we'll see it,” he wrote.
Either way, it will be an interesting show.
