    ps3 Sony reveals PS3 backwards compatible titles

    via Games Industry


    Sony has revealed that 1,782 PlayStation 2 titles will be playable on the PlayStation 3 when it launches in Europe this Friday.

    "Our engineers have been working overtime, and have succeeded in delivering a significant number of playable PS2 titles for the European launch," commented David Reeves, president of SCEE.

    However, the UK boss reiterated the company's main focus in the future will be on PlayStation 3 development, not on the delivery of backwards compatible PS2 games.

    "We will be adding additional titles to this list in future firmware upgrades, but as we have made clear before, in the future our resources will be increasingly focused on developing new services and entertainment features exclusively for PS3, rather than on delivering PS2 backwards compatibility."

    The full list of all 1,782 compatible titles is available here.

    Consumers will be able to play PS2 titles by downloading and installing the latest 1.6 firmware upgrade, available from midnight on Thursday.

    Guitar hero won't work because of the special controller.

    Hmmm. Metal Gear Solid 2 does not have backwards compatability... And neither does Final Fantasy VII, not complaining though, I can always play that one on my PSP.

    80% of my games will play, sum have minor issues sum should fine, the odd 1 or 2 have noticeable issues. wat i dont get is like the legend of dragoon (PSX) only has disk 4 compatablity :s wats the point in that?
