Backward compatibility,a luxury or requirement?


The world of Video gaming sure has changed since my younger days of playing Super Mario world on the Super Nintendo all day long. One thing that I notice as two of new generation consoles are expected to be launched by Christmas is the craving for consoles to have backward compatibility.
To some gamers it is even a selling point, but this has not always been the culture of video gamers. I hope to explain the origins of this culture and just how stable it is.

The game looked like one of those typical puzzle games that was either free or no more than $1.50. After a few minutes it dawned upon me that mobile gaming is possibly hurting and helping the video gaming industry.  I will explain in 5 simple paragraphs below.
