You have a link for that? IIRC at E3 and TGS they said no optimizations. If your link is from 1up, I'm going to laugh.

Jesus, it isnt even about something sony said. It's about you reading something that has been confirmed many times over, and not by just sony. But instead you have to lable somebody a fanboy before reading into the situation. Is it really so hard to believe that the hard drive is upgradable? **** even the PS2 had that feature (trust me, I had a 60GB 3.5" drive in mine).

Why dont you just stay out of the thread unless you know what you are talking about, you make your self look worse when you make guesses on something you dont even own.

You didn't provide any details or convincing. You just quoted the same generic "Yeah yeah PS3 can do anything, buy it now" BS. If you'd been more specific, maybe even linked (like you demand me to do) then I would have believed you.

Regarding backwards compatibility, he said that there might be opportunities for optimization of previous generation games when played on the PS3. However, Sony has no plans for the graphical optimization of downloadable PS1 games on the PSP (which were announced by Ken Kutaragi last week).
If you look it up later in the year they said no optimizations would be made. Look I'm not saying sony doesnt lie, because they sure have in the past. But bringing that up really doesnt have anything to do with a simple feature that has been currently confirmed.

Where did I even say that? I offered a suggestion, I didnt say the PS3 could do anything or buy it now. Don't put words in my mouth, it makes you look like your reaching.

Yeah thats a good point. I added a 320GB to mine. Though saving games and demos on it are impossible so I figured in a year or two if you dont delete much the 20GB might get a little full. It's really depends on what you plan on storing most on the drive.

I mean it's just a feature, theres no need to be calling a person a liar unless you know for sure. Especially when you don't even own a PS3, I'm assuming.
