ps3 disc specs
what are the technical specs on ps3 cds?
i've heard of ps2 disks being pressed or manufactured a certain way when they are made.
does anyone know if ps3 disks are made in a similar way?

They are on Blu-ray discs, so yes the manufacturing process differs from PS1/PS2 CDs/DVDs... tons of info here on them though: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blu-ray_Disc
PS3 Blu-ray game discs also have multiple layers of encryption and checks which all must pass through the PS3's hypervisor, which is probably one reason why we haven't seen a PS3 Action Replay/GameShark yet.
Some detailed info on the PS2 direct-boot process can be found HERE, however, it isn't the same as on PS3 due to the above reasons among others I'm sure.

That's a bummer because some of the games for the PS2 are awesome, but I don't want to have more than one console.

But the PS3 does have backward compatibility? Or are you worried at the moment about playing backups in the console?
