    The new Ps3 model has the name CECH-3000B. It will come in both 320GB and 160GB models, nothing looks different then some slight twicks to the power and eject button design, it has also been mentioned, “This product will not be compatible with PS2 software.” is what is translated from the official Sony Information Page.

    ※本製品は、「プレイステーション 2」専用ソフトウェアとの互換性を有しておりません。

    Freely translates to: This product will be compatible with PS2 software.

    *edit*

    sorry guys i screwed the pooch on this one, it won't be compatible with PS2 exclusive software.
    I messed up the verb form when going over the data, terribly sorry to get your hopes up.

    Meh. Unless I want my PS2 games to look decent on my HDTV, I just couldn't care anymore. I've got a modded PS2 with all my games hooked up to my older TV.

    Same here. The 80's Hero is the only Hero game I've never owned and played. I got a friend who has a bunch of PS2 GH controllers and games and this would be really cool.

    I'll wait till it launches to see what games it's compatible with. As long as it'll play all of my discs, I think it'll finally be time for me to upgrade my PS2 [​IMG].

    Why just not get a 60$ PS2, mod it, and have all the free games you want? [​IMG]
    Free McBoot Ftw. I know this is off-topic but free McBoot helped me relive my childhood memories
    (sly cooper)

    On-Topic: Wait a second.... didn't the first early models of the PS3, support PS2 backward compatibility? [​IMG]
    Then in around 07-08 it didn't support it anymore... why would sony add it back on again through hardware and not software?
    Seems like they want more $$$ than usual, typical sony [​IMG]

    Checked the other PS3 models' pages

    http://translate.googleusercontent.com/tra...h52pUIf-885WIfg

    Can anyone translate this?

    ?????????????????? ?????????????????????????

    The CECH-3000 and CECH-2500 models say that they will have BC

    BUT If you use Babelfish it says that both won't get BC.

    I also don't see the word "nai" there soooooo

    Of course when Nintendo makes a console revision people think it's so fucking amazing. When Sony does one, they're just money hungry bastards.

    It's greener, lighter, and possibly runs PS2 games. Quit your bitching.
