When the PS3 is out in Europe and Australia this March, the units sold will have no Emotion Engine like the ones sold in Japan and US. Instead Sony will use emulation software to play back PS2 and PS1 games.
Sony is doing this to cut manufacturing costs but also functionality, as the new version will play fewer games developed for the PlayStation and PS2 than the U.S. and Japanese version. This is an utter disgrace especially the unit sold in Europe and Australia is more costly.
It is time to boycott Sony products. Go buy a Nintendo Wii and/or a XBox 360 instead!

man there is no point in getting a ps3 now until next year or never so i might aswell trade in most my ps2 games out of 70 games altogether and buy an xbox 360 and save for a high definition tv, and the low sales of the ps3 are probably caused by poor marketing skills to build up hype for it.
It will still be a kick ass console I think.
yh i no but if u can buy a PS3 4 around £270 + P&P it is cheap but u get to keep all them games init + u also get a better games console ... with blu ray ... = more better grapics and better games and also better blu ray DVDs
Personally it doesn't really bother me that much seeing as i've already sold all my PS2 games and console.
However, i can't see how it's going to end up affecting loads of the PS2 games. I can't see the BC going suddenly from 98% to like 20%
The most popular games out for the PS2 i think will play without a problem.
As i say though, it doesn't really bother me that much seeing as all my investments will be going towards PS3 games and not PS2.
i'm starting to think that this whole bc thing has been blown a little out of proportion, but we won't really know till they release the list of games that are incompatible. i'm still glad i got mine when i did, but i have a feeling that those with the software emulated bc consoles are going to get an advantage later on down the road that the rest of us can't have. [unleess they release a firmware that shuts down the hardware and goes over to software only.] i guess time will only tell.
If anyone still buys a stipped down PS3 we can stamp "idiot" on their forehead!
why go and buy a wii or xbox 360 when they r both crap!!!
i wud rather keep my ps2 than get either of those
why make a big deal out of not being able to play some ps2 games on ps3
doesnt really matter
im still getting ps3
