Platform holders have often dismissed backward compatibility as an inconsequential feature. The PlayStation 3 was capable of it at launch, and the Xbox 360 added a number of titles via software emulations. This time out, neither the PlayStation 4 nor the Xbox One support last-generation titles.

Now that you've got a new console on your shelf, are you feeling the absence of this feature? With major titles coming only to PS3 and Xbox 360 over the coming months, does the absence of backward compatibilty affect your purchasing decision for those titles?
