Rumor: Sony Rep Reveals PS3 Backwards Compatibility Plans

Rumor: Sony Rep Reveals PS3 Backwards Compatibility Plans 800°
226w ago - Today TheGameHeadz.com (linked above) reports that a Rep revealed Sony's PS3 backwards compatibility plans to them at a recent press event.

While they didn't reveal their informant's name, a few months ago a patent for an adapter to make PS3 backwards compatible was uncovered.

To quote: "It was clear from our conversation that Sony likes the idea of backwards compatibility, but hadn't come to a conclusion until recently, on how to incorporate it.

The decision Sony finally came to is the one already in play, HD remastering.

"Remastering didn't come up until about two years ago. For a developer, remastering in HD took a moderate amount of time and effort to achieve, and with the right title it could be very successful. Once we noticed the benefits of HD remastering, the decision was made to use God of War 1 & 2 as the test for the market, and they delivered.

The God of War Collection had reached almost a million copies sold just after the holiday. Shortly aftter that Activision, EA, UbiSoft, Konami, and SquareEnix were all on board to issue ReMastered Edition of their best Playstation 2 Games."

He went on to say doing backwards compatibility...

LS Cover Manager - PS3 Backup Manager with Covers Arrives 750°
228w ago - Similar to existing PlayStation 3 Cover Managers including Flex Manager, today developer HellT from French site Logic-Sunrise.com (linked above) has made available his PS3 Backup Manager with covers named LS Cover Manager.

Download: LS Cover Manager

To quote, roughly translated: "HellT our forum today offers LS Cover Manager, another umpteenth manager tell you? but it has been designated for fans of the Logic-Sunrise community.

Indeed, this cover manager based on the Flex Manager V1.17b, adopts a clear and visual style takes the latter on logic-sunrise.

But this is not just skin, the Cover Manager and Manager Open them share the same ID games (OMAN46756) we can not have Open Flex Manager and Manager at the same time.

But every problem has a solution, the Cover Manager of LS did not "OMAN46756" as the ID but "LOGI72900.

Conclusion: Open OMAN46756 Manager / Manager Cover LS LOGI72900 can coexist together."
