I don't get it. Why did they change the hardware? My only concern when I got my PS3 was my PS2 collection. It seems now I was lucky not to wait, because I would have gained nothing anyway.

So at first, we don't mind getting the PS3 6 months late, and now we don't mind not having our old games run on the PS3. YAY! :headexplode:

Basically PS3 is getting the revision that all places will see in the future. Sony did this with the PS2 but looks like they are speeding things up with the PS3. Remember how the Japanese got shafted when they had to deal with an external HD but other places got the nice compact internal HD?

Not my fault that Europe goes gah gah for Sony. Saddly its almost a one sided market over there, here in the states Sony has to atleast put some effort...
