http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PlaySta...configurations) claims that 60GB PAL and 80GB NTSC models from 2007 do the PS2 backward compatibility purely in software (as opposed to older 20GB and 60GB NTSC models that have Emotion Engine). That leads me to belive nothing stops it from working on all later models apart from Sony's decision to enable it...
Compatibility with all PS2 games?
Is this going to be an application or a patch for the PS3's OS? Does anybody know if this will work with the oldest ps2 games?
Thanks for all your help guys.. The work you do in this site is amazing!
couple of questions for you...
can i ask you since you say its real, have you tested it? can you tell us about any more of the "interesting" things a service mode ps3 can do? do you know how long this 100% software emulation has been in the firmware? (like what version it started appearing?)
if you could answer any of those it would be much appreciated.

So there has never been a retail PS3 that ran ps2 games through "pure software" despite what wiki says... wiki is a good place for info... but then there's that edit button anyone can push!
On the Koalition, via here: http://www.thekoalition.com/sony-no-plans-to-bring-back-backwards-compatibility/
It states that Sony wont be making a Emulator Update like we all thought.
so that 40 gig is and the earlier retail models are and will be the only ones to play PS2 games...
Lots of mainstream media sites (IGN, GameSpot, MCV, Gamasutra, etc) have said otherwise... no offense, but TheKoalition is not even in the top million (let alone 100,000) rank of sites so their credibility is essentially zilch in the Internet world.
will there be another proof or something like that? is there any way i can get my retail PS3 into factory mode?
