July 6, 2015 // 12:13 am - I would like to inform everybody that Sony no longer services any of the old PS3 models, most notably the desirable CECHA01, CECHB01, and CECHE01 systems that have backwards compatibility.

Sony Could Clean Up with Backwards Compatibility on PS3 400°
February 11, 2009 // 7:32 am - What is it above all else that the PlayStation 3 is missing? Access to the vast PS2 library. Backwards compatibility is the most obvious chink in the PS3 armour.
