November 8, 2007 // 4:33 pm - 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: PAL PS3s never had an Emotion engine. Just software emulation.
The new 40GB models do officially have no PS2 BC.

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