    Rumor: New v2.00 PS3 update kills GT4 backwards compatibility

    According to Guy Legend, a busy thread on the official PlayStation forums which had multiple people stating that the new firmware update for PS3 has killed backwards compatibility with GT4 has been mysteriously removed.

    To quote: Apparently on the PlayStation boards there was a thread (which suddenly vanished without a trace) that the new 2.00 update has killed the 80 gb's BC with Gran Turismo 4. Multiple people said that the game would no longer work.

    Ugh, anyone here able to try it? I assume if made aware, they would fix this in the next update...

    Hint, 60GB= full backwards capability. Since the emotion (PS2) harware chip is still being utilized in the earlier models. This may be an issue for the 80 GB and 40 GB models as far as I can see.

    the 60gb pal doesn't have the emotion chip inside so it's also software emulated

    Hint: PAL PS3s never had an Emotion engine. Just software emulation.
    The new 40GB models do officially have no PS2 BC.
