Rumor: Full PS3 Backwards Compatibility Only Weeks Away?


Sponsored Links
296w ago - Recently it was reported that Sony patented software-based PS2 emulation technology. This got users excited who own 80GB, 40GB and 160GB PS3 consoles without backwards compatability.

Although the article speculated that the upcoming PS3 slim may utilize this technology, today a German Web site has supposedly gained comment from a Sony employee, to quote:

This brings us to the German Web site Demo News, which claims to have gained comment from a Sony employee stating that full backwards compatibility is coming to US PS3's as a firmware update in the "next few weeks."

If this rumor is true, it will make many newer PS3 console owners very happy indeed!

i think the thing people keep forgetting is, how good this system actually is, what will it mean, how many of them will work, etc =P

i mean if its near 100% thats good, if its around 30 or so, a tad lack luster

Since I've got an 80gb PS3, hopefully I can finally play all those PS2 games that I've missed out on.
Considering that I didn't get to own a PS2 xD
