Default Re: 40GB PS3 - NO BACKWARDS COMPATIBILITY

Just when I thought Sony couldn't **** up anymore than they already did. lol since there are basically zero good PS3 titles, this makes the 40GB system kind of worthless. I was even considering buying a PS3 mainly as a blu-ray player and to replay some PS2 titles.

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?



I don't believe you, prove me wrong http://web.tickle.com/tests/uiqflash/



I haven't seen you do that even once on these boards.
I don't see why anyone responds to Kevplay bong boy(aka "nightmare beta"). He's a retard that deserves to be banned.

Haven't you ever wanted to poke the disadvantaged with a sharp stick? Cruel yes, but fun too.

All I gotta say is 60GB PS3 FTW!!!! I'm glad I broke down and bought one before they went out of stock in the US, I know it's lacking in games at this very moment but their will be some very soon that I know I will want to play. And there was still a few PS2 games I wanted to finish as well so BC is great.

They probably ran out of room for checkpoints on the box and now that rumble isn't "last gen" anymore they had to find another last gen feature to axe and make room

Wait what did you say!?!? I normally ignore you're post but really calling someone a 7 year old with a poorly worded statment like that is pretty pathetic. Grow up man, stop being so idiotic, really either you are the dumbest person known to man no matter your age or you just like to create attention for yourself. Either way it's pathetic, just stop please it makes my head hurt and my eyes bleed.

According to Joystiq all current Euro models of the PS3 do not have any PS2 hardware in them, they are all 100% software based... They said it themselves, theres no cost benefit to the removal of the PS2 compatibility.

Joystiq isn't correct. Sony still haven't gotten 100% software emulation working yet.
