Good news for me, actually. I was thinking about a PS3 for Christmas but thought it would mean I wasted my money on the PS2 I just got for nothing. Now I have a reason for getting one!
man im so glad i own a mgs ps3 and a 60 gb one.... my mgs has bc and my 60 doesnt. o well
nuts, i kinda like the idea of backward compatibility :| guess i just see if my friend is willing to sell me his used ps2 then
so lame of them, even xb360 has limited bc
Well I'll still look into buying a PS3. If I want PS2 games, I'll just use my PS2. Easy as that. Though it would be more convenient if it did have some sort of PS2 emulation..
well I would just buy a ps3 for ps3 games and a ps2 for ps2 games.
I still have my who knows how old ps2, modded plays backups like a charm, but my 80 gb ps3 cant soooo.
The slim imo has a nice design, but the fat ps3 is slicker looking cept the fact its dust collecting machine lol
I hope emulation BC is added some day via firmware update. Only reason I have the idea in my head was because of that Kotaku article a couple months back about Sony patented the technology to emulate PS2 games.
This is Sony we're talking about.
As much as I want it to happen, it never will.
I bet they only refuse backwards compatibility because they're trying to squeeze whatever life they can out of the $100 PS2 now.
trying to make up for all the cash they lost with the ps3
I'm so glad, I did not buy a PS3 yet.
I think I am going to buy a PS3 Slim this christmas!
Ps2's can be found everywhere now. You can get one for real cheap and you can even softmod/hardmod it. It's better that the Ps3 doesn't come with backwards compatibility or else you'd just be wearing the laser down from playing other games other than Ps3's. Plus, it'd make the Ps3 a bit more expensive. I'm hoping to get a Ps3 next summer or so. The price will probably go down a bit or I can find 2nd hand Ps3 slim owners. I'd also be able to see if there's any problems with the first generations of Ps3 slims.
Everyone and their mother has a PS2 nowadays so this isn't really that big of a problem, really. Still good for the price.
Does the PS3 has PS1 compatibility?
I think that if the PS2 is now obselete, they will add a PS2 emulation on future firmware or next gen console
As far as i know, the just dropped the whole ps2 compatibilty stuff ages ago!
I don't care about that. When I want to play PlayStation2 game, I PLAY IT ON MY GOD DAMN PLAYSTATION2. And when I want to play Xbox games, I PLAY IT ON MY ....
I dont see what the fascination is either with BC on the PS3. There is nothing worse then looking at a last gen game on a nice new 1080p TV. If you wanna play ps2 games then get a ps2! Simples
Well, if you think about it, getting a brand new PS3 Slim and a brand new PS2 is about $400, the cost of a PS3 right now. And the PS2 has some of the best games ever made, and missing out on them is a bummer. Not to mention there's some things that are lost in BC (like Xbox 360 can't play Xbox games better than the original).
Now I want a PS3 Slim, MGS4, and Killzone 2 for Christmas. Damn you, Sony!
