It seems there WILL not be any BC update on 40gb model. Also do you realize X360 is using different GPU than Xbox? Nvidia designed XBOX GPU "NV2A" and ATI designed X360's GPU "Xenos". Both GPUs shares alot of different technical features, etc. So, BC isn't automatically easy to do, and it takes them a while to add more games. Geez lay off with your Sony fanboy comments. Hell, even X360 core (lowest model) has BC support.
Why would they purposefully make only the 40GB model's bios/firmware or whatever disable the ability of the cell to emulate ps2 games, when the other models don't have the emulation feature disabled?

Yes, I knew that the xbox 2001 used a geforce3/4 derivative, and yes i knew that ati designed the piece of **** gpu for the piece of **** x360.

and yes, i'm a sony fanboy, with good reason, and no, it's not b/c i'm retarded, it's because sony doesn't try to trick people into buying an under-powered, over-priced defective-out-of the-box busted piece of **** like their competitor does.

i seriously feel sorry for anyone that thinks the x360 is better than the ps3. I often respect other peoples' opinions, but it's kind of hard to when the x360 is such a piece of ****. i ought to bust mine even more to a million pieces with a sledge hammer like that guy did to his macbook. The only problem is that i'd have a million fragments of **** to clean up.

Its another year at least until the PS3 is a legitimate mass market product. Its still not ready, and Sony's house is out of order. Its a shame because they have two generations of amazing heritage to cash in on.

Just seen this: Good job Sony.
Quote:
"In the UK and Ireland, a Value Pack consisting of a 60GB PS3 with extensive backwards compatibility and two first party titles will be on sale at a price of 499 (349). Remaining on sale while stocks last, the 60GB model represents outstanding value for the keen gamer wishing to upgrade to the High Definition capabilities of PS3. Once stocks are exhausted the new 40GB model will be the only one available in the SCEE territories."

DX10 doesn't play any previous DX games, that is why MS ships DX9 along side DX10.

I think that not having any of the ps2 hw in the ps3 can potentially be fine.

however, a potential problem with that, is that only popular games are considered for emulation.

the cell can emulate just fine, it's just that every game needs to be emulated.

The issue with the x360's poor backwards compatibility is lack of effort, imo.
In this case MS has put some effort into BC, while Sony has done none for the new PS3s.

Because Sony doesn't want people buying/playing PS2 games, and this forces new PS3 owners to only play PS3 games.

And exactly how is the 360 gpu disapointing?

Did you take a hit off your bong before you posted that? 90% of it looked like you pulled it outta your...I'll be nice.

I swear I think you are a genious...honestly. I don't believe you can possibly, genuinely, think the way you post.

You HAVE to be doing it for kicks and sitting back laughing at everyone getting all bent outta shape over it.

This isn't a smart move by Sony, especially if what Mr_Lol said about it being the only unit availible in that market once the old ones are sold out. That basically eliminates one of the key features of the PS3. They're already selling poorly, dropping features isn't the way to sell more.

Correct and nightmare beta you need to tone it down. How many times do you have to be warned about spouting nonsense on this board?
