Traveller’s Tales LEGO series are some of my favorite videogames, filled with comic mischief and adorable mini-fig versions of fandom’s best characters.

But one can logically conclude that Sony will be offering backward compatibility of PS3 titles on their PS4—and not just because the company purchased the cloud-streaming service, Gaikai, for $380 million in 2012 or a paywalled report in the Wall Street Journal. It’s because of Sony’s “Evolution of PlayStation” video series.
