Koller: BC on PS3 "wont be returning"

ps36

Sony Computer Entertainment America's John Koller has told Ars that backwards compatibility on the PS3 won't be making a return anytime soon, be that with a new hardware SKU or in a firmware update.

Ever.

"It's not coming back, so let me put that on the table," said Koller.

"It's not as big as a purchase intent driver as you may be hearing. We've got such a substantial lineup of titles on the PS3; most people are buying the PS3 for PS3 games. They've buying it for PS3 games and Blu-ray movies.

That won't be returning."

Consider that one put to bed.
