PS3 Backwards Compatibility

Do you guys think that sony will release backwards compatibility in one of the later firmware update because the 80 gig is actually all software emulation so i don't see why the 40 cannot do it it would be very simple and after it is all said and done sony might make all their money back and more cause i know i would go out and buy some ps2 games cause they are cheaper and some fun ones that i haven't gotten the ability to play i think it would be a smart move for them to make all the systems backwards compatible i have seen many rumors for this what do you guys think on it?

I think they probably will not. I think that this would be a smart thing to do, and especially if they charged like $50 for this. I have a 60GB, so I'm fine, but I think it would be really smart of them to do this.

they won't waste their time. not many people play their old ps1, ps2 titles on the ps3 and the 40gb version is supposed to be the cheaper model anyways.

ps. i have a 60gb version too

Yeah it definitely should be able to play both of them. But, it's just too expensive. People are still complaining that $400 is too expensive. If they add PS2, it will be much more expensive. I also think they should bring back the 4 USB slots instead of 2.

I don't think that Sony is all that interested in backwards compatibility, and I don't see why you can't leave your PS2 hooked up if you're still playing all your old games.

i went from ps1 to ps3 so i never owned a ps2 or i wouldn't have to worry about this problem but they have software backwards on the old 80's i don't know why they cannot throw that into a firmware.

That's exactly what I think Reno, maybe it's a really big download or something.

Nope. There are plenty of PS2 units out there to play those games on... and software-based backwards compatibility is just not the same thing. Even on my 80GB unit that has software-based BC built in, the performance is mixed. Some games have visual issues, others glitch up, and still others just don't work. I use my PS2 to play my PS2 games on... just like I play my PSone games on a PSone, instead of my PS2 or PS3.

so true thats why the 60 model was discontinued, it was too expensive to build and had hardware emulation instead of software

No New ps3 models have backwards compatability since sony wants to focus on promoting their ps3 instead of old systems/games
