    That backwards compatibility is awesome. Hopefully the PS4's architecture supports it in the future as well! :sHa_okay:

    Forza 6 looked okay but graphically still has nothing on Driveclub for a console-exclusive racer. Forza is a sim though and Driveclub is arcade/sim.

    The new Tomb Raider looked pretty sweet. Shame it's an Xbox One Exclusive (for now). I guess Microsoft need their Nathan Drake/Uncharted equivalent!

    What I noticed about the show was how much stuff was exclusive to Xbox and/or Windows 10, or at least came to them first. I consider Microsoft a bigger and richer company than Sony, so it surprise me if they paid a lot of developers for exclusive games or games coming to their platforms first. I also noticed a larger focus on indie games - a la PlayStation. Guess they saw it was popular and took a bite out of the cherry!

    No GT mentioned. Seems a focus could be on Tokyo Games Show! :sHa_okay:

    I was quite underwhelmed to be honest, expected a price drop or something. I didn't expect a matching of Microsoft's backwards compatibility as that, I'm sure was a surprise and will take time to respond to....assuming it's technically possible.

    Backwards compatability would be incredible. But even if they could pull it off, it would be for titles only, peripherals would likely be left behind.
    Which would put the need for legacy support much higher on the priority list, but at the same time would drop that ball in the developers hands alone.

    Mind you legacy support is already pretty much solely on the dev's to impliment.

    Gonne be interesting over the next year or so.

    Final Fantasy 7 remake, The Last Guardian and Shenmue 3 were HUGE announcements. Three games that were myths are finally becoming a reality. However, if, like me, you're not into these sorts of games then yes, the conference was a little bit of a let down.
    Personally, the best parts of the show were the Uncharted 4 gameplay and the announcement of CoD exclusivity. :sHa_biggrin:

    Sony are skipping Gamescom in Germany in August so TGS is the next logical place for PS4, PS Vita, Project Morpheus (and maybe Move 2 controllers) and GT7 news.
